Irish Green Party deputy leader Mary White has argued the case for making Ireland a no-go zone for genetically modified food. Speaking at the party convention in Cork, White said consumers were entitled to have concern over their food. "I don't want my bread laced with folic acid - I don't want my tomatoes spliced with the gene of a flounder fish and I don't want my bananas straightened so that the globalisation of food is manipulated for big business and not in the interest of the consumer."
