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?
