Anti-GMO fever grows in Europe

Anti-GMO politicians are piling up principles as a bulwark against the introduction of genetically modified foods in Europe. Scotland’s environment minister, Roseanna Cunningham, told a conference of GMO-free regions in late April that the “democratic principle” should be added to the precautionary and preventative principles to prevent GMO introductions. A press release from her office says surveys showed a majority of consumers on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean were either apprehensive or opposed to GMO products in their foods.
