    Professor Conrad Lichtenstein, Chair of Molecular Biology at Queen Mary, University of London; Professor Vivian Moses, a researcher in biochemistry and microbiology; and Kerry Preete, Vice President of Monsanto's U.S. Crop Production Business, spoke for the motion.

    "Emotion and Fear Triumph over Rationality"
    Overall

    The arguments for GM foods were very clearly presented by two British professors and a U.S. Monsanto vp. The arguments against were clouded by emotion and fear (Sue Mayer played the role of the neo-Luddite, Devinder Sharma was the difficult-to-understand Indian anti-capitalist, and the Right Honorable Michael Meacher played the part of the sensationalist demagogue). Despite the good arguments for GM foods, the audience at the British Natural History Museum voted against the measure.
