  • 1315 into GM food technology, including study of its potential effects on health. These responses reflect an appropriately cautious approach towards the science of genetic modification. They reflect the real concern expressed by both “singleinterest groups” and a wider public. These anxieties may seem odd, even irrational, given that GM foods were introduced in the USA without any sign of consumer anxiety. Why? Because Europe now lives in a post-BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy) age, one… CONTINUE READING
