Ok, that's an old article but I recently discovered that problem... I saw it on TV a few days ago. That's interesting to see what's the US/Euro behaviour in front of this GM problem. I don't want to create a new "political" thread about US vs Europe but it seems that the USA, that already use GM, want to give it to Africa while the Euros don't. Zambia don't want to have this kind of help because they don't trust in GM. That's their right no? Here is the point of the thread : dealing with GM and other "unknown" sciences, can we use the poor countries to try these new sciences or to produce them? I mean even if it can help them... Lets say that you've got 1 bottle of water. A product has been added to the bottle. Following the scientist, this product will allow you to only drink 1 bottle/week. What a great economy of water!!! You need to drink but you don't know if the strange thing that has been added in the bottle is dangerous or not for your health. IMO, that's the same problem than with the GM : will you use it (with a risk for your body/environment) or will you try to find natural stuffs (with maybe less production)?
