The United States of America and the European Union have transferred their battle on genetically modified foods to Africa. 12 million people in Lesotho, Swaziland, Mozambique, Malawi, Zimbabwe and Zambia are in urgent need for food.
The case is very much similar to the story of John Harrison of United Kingdom who struggled in the Seventeenth Century for 40 years to prove that his mechanical clock was the answer to the longitude and accurate position location on earth and not stars as most people in the scientific establishment believed. The whole world presently takes little notice of the history of longitudes and wristwatches they wear. The genetically modified organisms [GMOs] despite rigorous scientific tests to ascertain whether they are harmful to human beings or not have been subjected to the same precautionary principle that saw John Harrison toil all his life.
