Letter:Dangers of genetic food- tampering

Sir: I wonder if Prince Charles ("BSE is an offence against God, says Prince Charles", 20 September) considers his beloved Jack Russell to be an offence against God. There are no Jack Russells, corgis, race horses or Friesian cows in the wild. All of them are "genetically modified organisms".

Not one item in the average supermarket is 100 per cent "natural", especially the fruit and vegetables.

Does Prince Charles develop a cold sweat every time he is offered a seedless grape?
