  • We had a war monger receive the Nobel peace prize and now the destroyer of natural foods given the Nobel prize for food and agriculture. WTF!??

    Oh... that and hot snow falls up.

    • Perhaps you are a little unsure of some basic science. Almost all the food you eat has been genetically modified over thousands of years. What you might think of as natural didn't exist even 1000 years ago in its present form.

      GMO food has two differences from selectively-bred food. One, it selects the genes in question extremely precisely, where breeding is hit or miss, choosing all the gene changes as a group when only one or a few are what is wanted. This is like writing a book by choosing random word

  • Check your title. He did not win a Nobel Prize, he won the World Food Prize. These are not the same. The hint is that one is called a Nobel Prize, and the other is not.

    • It's poorly worded. It's meant as in "the Nobel Prize equivalent for food and agriculture". Really poorly worded.
