Some Genetically Modified Rice is People (I'm not kidding)

This rice is made of people: I'm just going to post these various articles and video links on the subject of this rice that has been approved by the FDA since 2003. It's called "golden" rice and is supposedly a greater source of beta carotene and has been approved under the auspices that it will feed and deliver more nutrition, here, and in the third world countries. Not only does it turn out that the rice is not a significant source of beta carotene, but it turns out that this rice that has been growing since 2003 is genetically modified with human liver cells. How many crops are now infected by the pollen of these seeds?
