Rice is a staple diet of many of cultures, eaten every meal, every day, and often the only food in impoverished cultures. This "Golden GM Rice" creates a great danger of Vitamin A overdose causing resulting health issues as problematic as the original deficiency.

▶ HUMAN GENES ENGINEERED INTO EXPERIMENTAL GMO RICE BEING GROWN IN KANSAS
The only known GMO with inbred human traits in cultivation today, a GM rice product made by biotechnology company Ventria Bioscience is currently being grown on 3,200 acres in Junction City, Kansas — and possibly elsewhere — and most people have no idea about it.
Since about 2006, Ventria has been quietly cultivating rice that has been genetically modified (GM) with genes from the human liver for the purpose of taking the artificial proteins produced by this “Frankenrice” and using them in pharmaceuticals.
