And indeed, Golden Rice has all the problems associated with GMO crops, which is why Greenpeace protests it.
- A biological monoculture, increasing the risk that a single pest can cause immense damage to subsistence farmers throughout the region.
- The possibility of unknown pleiotropic effects ("side effects") caused by the mutation.
- Gene privatization, with Monsanto and others already asserting their patents, requiring farmers to obtain a license to grow their crops.
Besides, malnutrition in the third world is the result of widespread poverty, which has numerous causes, none of which is Greenpeace GMO protests. Blaming Greenpeace for that is absurd.
