[Excerpt] “GMOs are not inherently more dangerous than conventionally bred crops - on the contrary. For example, Gold Rice, rice genetically engineered to accumulate beta-carotene and thereby alleviate serious vitamin A deficiency in developing countries, has been stymied and blocked by anti-GMO activists for over a decade. Ironically, this product (which original experimental versions contained Monsanto technology) could save the lives of hundreds of thousands of children in developing countries.”
