Indirect GM Food - the new scare
Under European rules, any food containing raw GM ingredients, such as corn or soy, must be labelled as such.
There is no legal obligation for food producers, shops and supermarkets to do the same when the GM link is further back in the food chain.
Michael Meacher, the former environment minister, said animal feed was being used as a way of “inserting GM into the food chain”.
“If people choose to eat GM that is a matter for them,” he said. “But I think we are trying to trick them by making sure it actually happens even though people realise what the implications are.”
And the implications are exactly what? Everybody in this country has eaten "indirect" or in the case of veggies "direct" GM food. Nearly every meal will have some in it and has done for years. And apart from nutritious healthy food being cheaper and more available what has the implications been?
