Do these people look happy?

I was struck by the photo accompanying this article in The New York Times. The piece announces the passage of a law in Brazil sanctioning the planting of GMO crops, something that has been done in the country on the sly for years. I'm trying to imagine how wide an angle the news photographer will need when the first large-scale public health crisis traced to GMO foods erupts. Why am I so sure it will happen? Because no agency requires any testing of any kind for GMO foods. We are the testers.
