Sir: Feeding the hungry with unnatural plants whose ability to sustain health has not been proven is a crime against mankind ("Crop engineering `failing' the hungry", 4 September). If even a fraction of the money that is currently being poured into the search for chemicals and genes which will "cure" all ills were diverted into establishing sustainable agriculture based on local crops in all countries, we would no longer have ills to cure.

Of course, there is no profit in health.
