Concerns about GM High Lysine Corn

Today on National Radio, listen to this report on concerns by NZ scientists, over approval of the the sale and use of food derived from LY038 high lysine corn (for human consumption).

This corn has only been approved for animal consumption and has not been tested in its' cooked form. The scientists interviewed say there is ample scientific evidence to indicate that cooking high lysine corn will produce compounds which are highly hazardous to humans.

We will be the guinea-pigs that the corn is trialled on!!!

The decision will be made by Ministerial Council on Monday 23rd July (at the earliest)

Please note that this audio report is only available for a week.
