Mark Lynas: From GMO hater to supporter

| | July 10, 2013

While U.S. consumers are becoming increasingly more interested in where their food comes from and what goes into it, Europeans have been keenly interested in such topics for a quarter century to the point where genetically modified foods are banned by most Western European countries. Much of this has been driven by intellectual activists and organizations like Greenpeace, and arguably, there has been no one more influential in the debate than Mark Lynas.

The British environmentalist and author helped found the movement against genetically modified (GM) foods in the mid 1990s, but in early 2013 publicly denounced his past position during a now-infamous speech at the Oxford Farming Conference.
