Withering of Public Capacity to Breed Better Crops
The Real Scoop by Doug Gurian-Sherman
July 17, 2009

The Real Scoop by Doug Gurian-Sherman | Union of Concerned Scientists
excerpt from above:
Quote:
"The Real Scoop", by Doug Gurian-Sherman, offers a science-based perspective on industrial-style agriculture approaches, including CAFOs (confined animal feeding operations), genetic engineering, and other methods with enormous impacts on human health, the environment, and society. Doug is a UCS scientist with a background in plant pathology and author of recent groundbreaking reports on CAFOs and genetic engineering. Check out "The Real Scoop" often for reliable analysis by Doug, joined occasionally by UCS colleagues, on breaking news from the world of science and agriculture.
