The Grocer: Hillary Clinton aide Jack Bobo tells EU: stop 'bashing' GM
Published on 14 December 2012 by Julia Glotz
Senior advisor on biotech to Hillary Clinton, Jack Bobo, expressed astonishment at the level of public criticism around GM in the EU when - behind the scenes - GM material was widely used in food production.
"You shouldn't be bashing something you rely on," he said. "The European livestock industry runs on genetically engineered feed, and GM organisms are widely used in cheese, wine and beer. Let's make sure we provide all the information, which includes saying: 'look you've been eating beer wine and cheese for all this time and you're doing fine.'"
