Against the backdrop of increased calls for public debate on the genetic modification of crops, the British Science Association revealed the results of an independent study into the public attitudes that surround the divisive issue of the benefits and risks of genetically modifying our food.
The results were revealed at the national launch of National Science & Engineering Week 2012. As part of this study, respondents were questioned about their attitude to the genetic modification of food crops. Participants were given a range of possible applications of gene modifying technology, and asked whether they would support the use of gene technology for that purpose.
