Ministers should support safer, sustainable alternatives for curbing vitamin A deficiency

A final decision on the release of GM golden rice will be made today by Bangladesh agriculture and environment ministers, following a recently reported impromptu meeting of the ministries with Nobel Peace Laureate Richard Roberts, who enquired about developments regarding the release of golden rice during his recent visit to the country.

Roberts is chief scientific officer for New England Biolabs, which develops products for the biotech industry. He consistently fails to declare this interest in his promotional activities for golden rice.
