The process of sneaking genetically modified foods into human food continues. Aventis, having 'inadvertently' mixed some of its StarLink corn (approved only for animal food) with corn for human consumption and therefore contaminating the human food supply, now wants relaxation of restrictions on the StarLink corn. What are the chances that the Bush administration will turn down a big corporation? Why should Aventis receive a benefit for its wrongdoing? The only just solution would be to wind up Aventis and use its assets to partially pay for the damage it has caused. Instead, it will almost certainly be allowed to use its 'inadvertence' to futher its long term plan to have us all eating frankenfood.
