Quotes

"We came to know about the trials of GM corn in September. The university was not open to sharing information about it. Now, they have promised to discuss the issue with us in November" said Rajesh Krishnan, convener of the Coalition for a GM-free India
"We have all the permissions for our trials," a Monsanto spokesperson said by phone. "We don't know about what happened at MPKV and do not want to comment more about our trials."
"A fair-minded and unbiased individual looking atat all the evidence must reach the conclusion that there is a great deal we do not know and what we do know impels us to be both cautious and concerned, skeptical of an early manufactured consensus, and critical of a framing that fails to recognize the diversity of public objections to GMOs."
"The study should be bold, but its promotion needs to be careful."
