According to a Greenpeace report, golden rice provides so little Vitamin A, ‘a 2-year old child would need to eat 7 pounds per day'. Likewise an adult would need to eat 20 pounds to get the daily recommended dose. And that's just the tip of the ice-berg. Nutrients such as fat and protein, often lacking in the diets of malnourished children, are needed in order to absorb Vitamin A. And wait a minute, aren't there any safer alternatives to the Golden Rice? There are. The red rice from India or brown rice actually contain more Vitamin A. Green leafy vegetables are another abundant source of Vitamin A.

The truth is currently there are no commercialized GM foods in which the modified trait is even designed to improve nutrition. Worse stll, there is only evidence to show that existing nutritional composition changes adversely with genetic engineering.
