    Biotech and Hugh Heffner



    I've always thought it would be cool if Playboy would run a story about organics.

    That way, during one of the conferences of long-haired, granola-eating organic hippies, you'd see guys (and some women) walking around, attempting to justify their actions by saying:

    "Really! I'm just reading it for the articles!"

    Well, in the upcoming June issue, Playboy will run Dan Baum's story "How Big Agriculture and the U.S. Government Bungled the Biotech Revolution and Made a Deal with the Devil."

    Meanwhile, back in St. Louis, Monsanto announced last week that it was shelving plans to introduce genetically modified wheat.

    Join host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network, as we discuss the Biotech scoop. (Then you can decide whether or not to read the story in print ...)
