Keeping Seeds Safe
by Jeremy at 8:53 am EST, Mar 2, 2004

In a pioneering study released last week, the Union of Concerned Scientists asked two independent labs to examine samples of traditional corn, soybean and canola seeds. The labs found contamination in half the corn, half the soybean and more than 80 percent of the canola varieties.

This is a serious finding.

I'm logging this editorial because no one responded to the Washington Post story I posted on Sunday.

If you've read "Guns, Germs, and Steel", this study should make you very uncomfortable. If you haven't, consider it.
