In Perspective: Anti-GM vitriol rises
Critical thinking and the ability to recognize pseudo-scientific studies appears to be lacking by activists.

Most people don’t look at the organic industry, which is now owned by many of these mega corporations, and truly understand the difference behind organic and biotech-produced food.
America’s high schools have the lowest competencies in math and science in the industrialized world. Without this understanding, how can Americans truly understand what biotech scientists are doing? Somehow agriculture must find a way to show that biotechnology is not an enemy.
