– Environment Secretary Owen Paterson
There's about 160 million hectares of GM being grown around the world. There isn't a single piece of meat being served (in a typical London restaurant) where a bullock hasn't eaten some GM feed. So it's a complete nonsense. But, the humbug! You know, large amounts of GM products are used across Europe.
Genetically modified food should be grown and sold widely in Britain, Environment Secretary Owen Paterson has said.
