The just-released issue of The American Spectator features Center for Consumer Freedom research director David Martosko in an essay about the activist-fueled global panic over genetically improved foods.

“It’s dangerous enough,” Martosko writes, “to embrace, as Europe has, an organic-dominated food culture that costs more than it needs to and makes life riskier for the people who eat it. But we should be doubly careful not to encourage the next generation of moms and dads to fear their food just because some global company and — Lord save us! — a scientist had a hand in making it.”
