Letter: Seeds of peril in genetically altered food

Sir: Genetically engineered soya is a major concern to many. Vegans and vegetarians will no doubt suffer more than most, as soya is probably the most used substitute for meat, milk and butter.

It is difficult enough for those of us who have decided to cross from vegetarianism to veganism after the latest worries over BSE and CJD. Now our choices will be limited even more with the news that this imported soya will not be labelled.
