It is becoming scarily obvious that the psychopaths who run the biotech companies have decided that it will be too expensive to do proper tests on the safety of genetically-modified foods, or, even worse, that such tests will reveal that the genetically-modified foods are unsafe for human consumption. They therefore have decided to allow the genetically-modified foods to contaminate the natural strains. This will lead to one of three scenarios: 1) the contaminated strains will have no adverse effect on human health, and the biotech firms will argue that they should be allowed to continue to market the genetically-modified foods; or 2) many people will get sick or die and the biotech firms will claim that the contamination was an act of God and will seek protection in bankruptcy or from legislation; or 3) the contamination will become so common that it will be impossible to find a causal nexus between the particular contamination and the human health problems caused by it (chemical companies have for years been dining off a similar confusion caused by the massive number of man-made chemicals in the environment). The contamination has already begun, and we can't seem to do anything about it.
