Is there GMO in my tea?
GMO foods - produced by transgenic breeding - doubted and feared by many consumers are shrouded in secrecy and are heavily protected by Big Business patents. Banned in some countries yet, with global trading, they pop up uninvited in surprising places. But surely not in your teacup? Would you know? In this session, we will lift a few stones and uncover some secrets. What do the molecular scientists plan for tea? Is your tea DNA spliced with jellyfish DNA? Are GMO cultivars taking over the tea fields? Has Monsanto tinkered with your teabag? Unthinkable - or is it?
Nigel Melican has been penetrating the veil of secrecy and will answer all these questions, and more.
