Tell the White House: No Award to Syngenta for Golden Rice Hoax

Tell the White House that there is no Golden Rice tested and approved in any country. The IRRI admits it needs more research.
Instead of giving an award to a fiction, the award should go to UNICEF and Governments which have brought down Vit A deficiency through Vit A supplements.
It should go to women who can grow and cook Vit A rich foods for their children if they had the Seeds and the space for a Garden.
