Good for them! GM crops are a danger to our health and our eco systems.

Did you hear about the GM vaccine trials on horses in Offaly? They got the go ahead from the EPA recently. It continues until 2016!!!

i'm not unduly worried from a health point of view about GM crops.
the danger lies in the patents the likes of monsanto hold over them, and the terms in the licence agreements for their use - e.g. that if you buy certain seed, you can only use it within a particular window.
