â€¢ Microsoft founder, Bill Gates, aims to end world hunger by growing more genetically engineered food cropsâ€”a philanthropic plan that may be gullible at best, and destructive at worst, both to the environment and humanity
â€¢ Monsanto and other biotech companies have collaborated with the Gates Foundation via the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) to promote the use of genetically modified (GM) crops in Africa
â€¢ Gates supports the use of Golden Rice, which has been genetically modified to produce beta-carotene that your body can convert to vitamin A. Itâ€™s promoted as a way to alleviate vitamin A deficiency, which is common in developing countries. However, beta carotene is fat soluble, and many third-world inhabitants eat a very low-fat diet, which would seriously impede or block the conversion.
â€¢ According to one study, a woman would have to consume 16 pounds of Golden Rice per day to get the recommended amount of vitamin A; a child would have to eat 12 pounds, raising serious doubts about the usefulness of this invention.http://www.naturalnews.com/035105_Bill_ ... enics.htmlhttp://www.naturalnews.com/032834_human ... _GMOs.htmlhttp://articles.mercola.com/sites/artic ... n-gmo.aspx
