Prince questions GM food safety

 

London - The Prince of Wales has used a hard-hitting newspaper article to voice his fears about the safety of genetically-modified foods. Writing in the Daily Mail, the prince questions claims that GM foods are safe, and attacks the lack of independent scientific research on GM crops.

Accusing supporters of GM foods of using "emotional blackmail" to argue their case, he expresses concerns about the toughness of regulations governing the cultivation of GM crops.
