She’s the Ambassador from Monsanto[edit]

“Oh great, our State Department is pushing G.M. food. She’s the Ambassador from Monsanto.” What’s your response?

Nina Fedoroff: How do I answer him? My answer is: There’s almost no food that isn’t genetically modified. Genetic modification is the basis of all evolution.

Controversy[edit]

Fedoroff is considered a 'population alarmist' by some groups. She has been quoted as saying “humans had exceeded the Earth's ‘limits of sustainability’." A quote from a recent PRI (Population Research Institute)article follows:

"What about the 6.8 billion the world already supports? the BBC asked her. “There are probably already too many people on the planet," Fedoroff replied." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.139.40.170 (talk) 18:38, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
