Kenya issues blanket ban on GM food imports

However, this should be investigated holistically without pointing fingers at GM foods. It should be noted that genetic modification, which is the application of scientific knowledge to transfer beneficial genetic traits from one species to another to obtain desired results, is not alien science.
