Back in the ’70s, Brett Kimberlin ran a health food store as money laundry for his wholesale drug dealing. There is some evidence that he actually believes in dietary quackery, and that my explain why he set up the citizensagainstgmo dot com website. This post about Brett Kimberlin and Vitamin A Deficiency from nine years ago today to a look at that site.

One of the most promising genetically engineered crops that has become available over the past decade or so is golden rice. It has been modified to produce beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A. This is an important innovation for the third world where where vitamin A deficiency kills upwards of 600,000 children under 5 each year.
It is also a major bête noire of the anti-GMO food crowd.
Take a look at this:This is a page from the website citizensagainstgmo dot com. It lists golden rice as number 5 among the top 10 GMO food products.
This site is hosted on the same server as the sites for Justice Through Music Project, Velvet Revolution US, Breitbart Unmasked, NRAWatch, Pussy Riot Defense Fund, and other Kimberlin-related sites.

The site’s DONATE button must not have generated enough revenue to keep the site viable. It’s among the dozens of failed web domains Kimberlin has allowed to expire.
