Letter: Clothed in GM

IN CASE anyone thinks that wearing GM clothing does not pose a threat to their health, they should be aware that cottonseed is used extensively in animal feed and cottonseed oil is used in both animal and human food. M&S is correct in pointing out that its clothing is not eaten, but, by accepting GM cotton, it is nevertheless actively encouraging huge amounts of unnecessary GM material into our food chain.
