Vatican to support GMO

Seems the Vatican is going to support genetically modified foods.

Archbishop Renato Martino, head of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, said the Vatican was preparing an official report on biotechnology, to be published next month, which would come out in favor of genetic modification.

... Archbishop Martino, who until last year was the Vatican representative at the United Nations, said he lived for 16 years in the United States "and I ate everything that was offered to me, including genetically modified products. They had no effect on my health. This controversy is more political than scientific."
