The contamination of the cradle of corn with genetically engineered seeds

Ignacio Chapela from the University of California, Berkeley discovered that genetically modified corn had contaminated the cradle of corn in the remote mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico. The Zapotecan Indians have cultivated corn here for over 10,000 years.

When the report was published in the science magazine of record, Nature, it caused an international scandal. Apparently under pressure from the Biotech industry, the magazine attempted earlier to pressure Chapela to withdraw the story. This is Chapela's story and the story of corn that needs to remain intact so future generations will be able to eat.
