business news in context, analysis with attitude

The UK's Royal Society has issued a report saying that there is no evidence that genetically modified foods are any worse for people that conventionally created foods, according to the BBC.

While GM technology could lead to "unpredicted harmful changes in the nutritional status of foods", the BBC says, the same could happen with traditional methods of crop breeding. In addition, the likelihood of allergies is no worse with GM crops than conventional crops.
KC's View:
Proving it is one thing. Convincing the public is another…especially when Greenpeace attacks the report almost before it gets issued.
