GE ‘Golden’ rice is a genetically engineered (GE, also called genetically modified, GM) rice variety developed by the biotech industry to produce pro-vitamin A (beta-carotene). Proponents portray GE ‘Golden’ rice as a technical, quick-fix solution to Vitamin A deficiency (VAD), a health problem in many developing countries.
However, not only is GE ‘Golden’ rice an ineffective tool to combat VAD it is also environmentally irresponsible, poses risks to human health, and compromises food security.

Since when is GreenPeace anti environment? GMO foods such as Golden Rice are the future of cultivation that could literally save millions of lives. Stop the GMO fear mongering.
That is a lie. You should inform yourselves before posting such false a statement as this one. GMO's are far better for the environment than organic-labelled products and normal crops. Is it true you burnes golden rice crops?
Thank you soooo much for saying this. It is very obvious that the benefits of GM rice far outweigh this silly idea that GM is bad.
