I am very happy eating transgenic maize. Genetically modified foods can make a difference: adapted to drought or more nutrients in a crop such as Golden Rice, in which precursors of vitamin A are introduced and can help prevent childhood blindness.

We talk about drought-resistant seeds, and I’ve promoted them all over Africa. By definition, they have been engineered to be drought-resistant, I mean that’s the beauty of them. Maybe somebody can get their harvest done and not starve, and maybe there’s some left over to sell.

The science is still inconclusive about GMOs and there are arguments that they could possibly be harmful and they could be possibly be incredibly beneficial and drought-resistant and have extra nutrition. But at this point we just don’t know.
