Interesting piece in Better Humans about genetically modified crops.

Despite environmentalist opposition and European Union moratoriums, expansion of genetically modified crops is increasing as evidence for their benefits and safety grows. Research shows that rather than harming the environment, genetically modified crops are helping to improve the environment by reducing pesticide use. And rather than hurting developing nations, they are being used by developing nations to address agricultural and nutritional problems. Top it all off with the fact that scientists have found no evidence for harm from consuming genetically modified crops, and it becomes apparent that the de facto battle against them is all but lost.
