On a GM platter

Yes, this title has been used as is from Indian Express . And for a reason. I do not know the level of awareness among my fellow Puneites towards genetically modified crops. It is something like modding an old fiat with a cool looking oomph-drawing body just to be let down by its performance.

I find it strange that there has been no negative press with regards to this issue in India. However in the USA - this article generated quite a buzz. Without jumping to kill the messenger, I would look at the message - Cancer is killing farmers using GM seeds, either directly or indirectly.

So I am trying to understand how much awareness exists among puneites in this matter. Is this something that is being overlooked? Anyone?

Если врач знает название вашей болезни, это еще не значит, что он знает что это такое. Никогда не приписывай человеческой зловредности того, что можно объяснить обыкновенной глупостью. Человек может долго жить на деньги которые он ждет. Реальность это иллюзия вызываемая отсутствием алкоголя. Женщины едят за разговорами, мужчины едят заедой.
