Prince Charles warns GM crops could be biggest-ever environmental disaster

The mass development of genetically modified crops risks causing the world’s worst environmental disaster, The Prince of Wales has warned in an interview with the Daily Telegraph. In his most outspoken intervention on the issue of GM food, the Prince said that multi-national companies were conducting an experiment with nature which had gone "seriously wrong". The Prince also expressed the fear that food would run out because of the damage being wreaked on the earth’s soil by scientists’ research. He accused firms of conducting a "gigantic experiment I think with nature and the whole of humanity which has gone seriously wrong". "What we should be talking about is food security not food production – that is what matters and that is what people will not understand.”
