Nigeria’s minister of agriculture and rural development has something to say to all those nannies who oppose genetically improved food: “Organic farming, sophisticated methods of distributing food and other approaches are well and good for those who can afford to experiment. Starving people do not have this luxury. They want food and nourishment, not lectures, and we certainly won’t allow ourselves to be intimidated by eco-terrorists who destroy test crops and disrupt scientific meetings that strive to reveal the facts… The harsh reality is that, without the help of agricultural biotechnology, many will not live.”
