In a surprising contradiction, Nestle official says GMOs aren’t necessary
TakePart - 8/30/2012.
By Clare Leschin-Hoar – Overhearing someone say genetically modified crops aren’t the solution for feeding a planet ready to burst with 9 billion hungry mouths by 2050 isn’t surprising if it comes from a leader in the organics crowd.
