  1. Personally, I like my chilis without genes. So much hotter that way! 🙂
    Maybe some interesting interviews in the movie:
    Dr. Hanson : NMSU
    Prof Seralini ; —– Uhhhh, never mind…..

    What you’re talking about is the post-modernist journalistic requirement of ‘balance’ in reporting. Always have to present the other side.
    You know, like how every time the Hubbell Space Telescope project finds something new, they have to quote the Flat Earth Society.
    Ummm. I guess not. Oh well.
