French GM-fed rat study triggers furore
BBC News - 9/19/2012.
By Jonathan Amos – A furious row has erupted over a French study claiming to have found tumours and other problems in rats fed on genetically modified maize and exposed to a common, associated herbicide. The rodents ate the GM diet over a two-year period – a normal lifetime.

Grist - 9/19/2012.
By Twilight Greenaway – Rice. It’s just one of the basics, right? Whether eaten on its own, or in products like pastas or cereal, this inexpensive and healthy food is a staple for Asian and Latino communities, as well as the growing number of people looking to avoid gluten. Here’s the bad news: The food most of us think we have more or less locked down is shockingly high in arsenic.

The Guardian [UK] - 9/19/2012.
By Colin Tudge – The deep trouble is the huge clash between morality, biological reality, and the present economy. Until and unless we bring the three into line, we are bound to be in trouble. More than that, we need to acknowledge that morality (what is good) and biological reality (what is necessary and possible) must lead, and the economy must be secondary.
