USDA Expert: GMOs Can Help Kenya Alleviate Hunger
Monday, 2013/08/19 | 08:16:36

US Department of Agriculture scientist Zhulieta Willbrand renewed the bid to push for genetically modified (GM) foods in Kenya, saying they are safe for consumption. She said the foods do not cause any harm if properly handled, and that the improper management of the foods when they are being processed is what makes them dangerous.

 

Willbrand said, "The products have been around for a while and consumed for a while and there has not been a legitimate case of humans or animals affected as a result of consuming the modified foods." She added that regulations are needed to ensure that technology is used appropriately, and for the country to build capacity in institutions such as the Kenya Agricultural Research Institute, to do sufficient research.
