UK Chief Scientist says GM Crops' Case Becoming Stronger
Thursday, 2013/05/02 | 00:55:34

Sir Mark Walport, the newly appointed chief scientific adviser of the United Kingdom government claimed that the rise of genetically modified (GM) crops is 'inexorable' and more of these crops could be grown in Britain as the scientific case for their use becomes "stronger".

 

Speaking publicly for the first time in the post, David Cameron's personal scientific adviser said evidence on the benefits of farming GM crops was becoming "stronger and stronger" as the technology started "showing its value". The chief scientific adviser's comments suggest that GM technology is rapidly gaining influence after years of public hostility and despite fears about the so-called "Frankenstein foods".
