Gates and GM

The Gates Foundation is to put $10million into researching nutritional fortification using both conventional and GM techniques. Of course, this has immediatly met with condemnation by anti-GM groups. But what have they got to lose? Surely if conventional techniques can solve these problems and improve diets in the developing world, then great. If GM technology can do the task more effectively, then surely it is better to know that?

Unless, of course, you are not interested in the welfare of other people but only in promoting your anti-technology prejudices...
