Pope's warning on GM foods

From Mr Roger Shorter Sir, Pope John Paul II, speaking to an estimated 50,000 farmers at a special outdoor Mass on November 12, said that "using genetically modified organisms to increase production" was contrary to God's will".

He also said "if modem farming techniques don't reconcile themselves with the simple language of nature in a healthy balance, the life of man will run ever greater risks, of which we are already seeing worrying signs."

Christian Ecology Link, Britain's largest, ecumenical Church-linked environmental charity, which has published its own leaflet on GM Crops, stressing the importance of "Care for God's Creation", welcomes the Pope's words of warning on this subject.

Yours faithfully, ROGER SHORTER Christian Ecology Link, Harrogate, N Yorkshire.
