Soylent Green is people! And so is some genetically modified rice.

Scientists at the National Institute of Agrobiological Sciences in Tsukuba say that the process makes rice immune to 13 different herbicides, but opponents say the human-derived food will flounder in the marketplace because it'll smack of cannibalism.
