Food crisis fears lessen GMO concerns in Europe

There are signs that European consumers' reservations about the use of genetically modified crops are declining in the face of mounting fears over a global food crisis. So concludes a survey carried out by European agricultural biotechnology website, GMO Compass, which says there is evidence that "the mood is changing". Of 5,435 respondents, some 83.9% agreed that European agriculture should utilise all technologies, including biotechnology, if negative environmental effects could be ruled out and positive nutrition effects were possible. A total of 84.3% of respondents said GM crops should be taken into consideration as an option to improve yields while protecting the environment at the same time.
