China sacks three officials for GMO rice test: XinhuaSubmitted by doctor011 on Fri, 12/07/2012 - 19:48
THIS IS REALLY A STATEMENT ON HOW BADLY WE LET OUR GOVERNMENT SCREW US. China has fired three officials for testing genetically modified rice on children as part of a Sino-U.S. research project, state media said on Thursday.
The officials from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Zhejiang Academy of Medical Sciences were sacked for violating regulations, scientific ethics and academic integrity, Xinhua news agency said.
The controversial test first came to light when environmental group Greenpeace said a U.S. Department of Agriculture-backed study used 24 Chinese children aged between six and eight to test genetically modified "golden rice." http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/12/06/15735225-china... Goats are smarter than us,,,,,, This company is the largest grower, producer, and shipper of carrots in the world. I recently acquired a package of their conventionally grown bagged whole carrots, so I decided to see if my goats would like them. They are being raised with no pesticides or GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Well, I may as well have been holding a skunk in my hand because they would have nothing to do with them. Fiona was raised on a porch and hand fed for a good portion of her life. She eats everything out of my hand. Except those carrots… Red is a good eater also, and will eat just about anything on the ranch. Except those carrots… http://farmwars.info/?p=9631
