Yes, but require the labelling of foods that are genetically modified

Yes, unfortunately, our future is heading in that direction so it’s good to start our research and familiarity with it all now.

@97MNRYY answered…2wks

Yes, by require labelling of genetically modified food, and make it so they cannot patent a seed.

@96R9QC7Liberal Democrat answered…1mo

The genetically modified food have to be labelled and before selling the food, they should be tested to make sure that they are not harmful to anyone or the environment.

@96PQVSD answered…1mo

No, there isn’t enough research into GMO’s and it puts health at risk

@962VZL8 answered…2mos

Yes. However, much greater regulation is required to minimise effects on the environment and ecosystem.

@95ZPR3S answered…2mos

If the food is safe, it can be really beneficial to developing countries that may not be able to grow certain crops and foods because of the conditions of where they live.

@92YTJ99 answered…6mos

Yes, all food is genetically modified due to artificial selection.

@92WJ4XM answered…7mos

No, but potentially in the future based on the direction of the research and groups in control of the crops.

@92S3SGQ answered…7mos

Genetic modifications need to show that there is no interface with human genetics

@92RKWT2 answered…7mos

Yes, but efforts should be made to ensure there is not complete uniformity of genetics for certain crops. This prevents one disease wiping them all out.

@jexflies answered…7mos

Yes however producers should not be able to patent seeds and genetically modified foods should be labelled

@92Q6QBJ answered…7mos

Yes but only after detailed and intense scientific testing to prove those gm crops and foods can cause no harm short or long term to humans, animals and the environment.

@92M9R9N answered…7mos

People don’t understand what GMO is. The majority of food we eat have been GM.

@92KVTKQ answered…7mos

Yes, but production of non-genetically engineered crops and foods should be tax incentivised

@92FXBBK answered…7mos

Yes, but producers should not be able to patent seeds & the foods should meet a high food quality tolerance.

@8ZWHLQSPlaid Cymru answered…8mos

Yes, but producers should not be able to patent seeds, and genetically modified foods should be labelled as such.

@8ZPD5WR answered…9mos

all our crops have been genetically engineered by evolving or selective breeding.

@8YSBYYB answered…10mos

The modifications should be to reduce the need for pesticides and herbicides and to make the plant grow using less water. Never for increasing chemicals or water.

@8YQQ6TTLabour answered…10mos

Yes, but producers should not be able to patent seeds and require the labelling of foods which are genetically modified.

@randomfandomhoe answered…10mos

Yes, but producers should not be able to patent seeds Yes, but require the labelling of foods that are genetically modified. Both stances.

@8YL92F6 answered…10mos

Yes but with strict regulations and oversight by government that is open and public knowledge

@8YG7WN8 answered…11mos

It depends if it is for profit and where it occurs, e.g. in poorer parts of the world, especially rural areas with extreme weather/soil conditions guaranteed crop could prolong the average lifespan of a resident/citizen.

@8XLQN5F answered…1yr

Yes, but only if sufficient testing has been done to ensure that this doesn't affect the biodiversity of the surrounding environment

@8XKL8F6 answered…1yr

Yes, but within a limited sense.
Producers should not be able to patent seeds, nor genetic information sourced from nature. Products should be labelled to indicate that they contain genetically-modified ingredients, with a link to the detailed information.

@8WZMVWF answered…1yr

No, it is against British Agriculture and the rural economy and community

@8WWSS52Green answered…1yr

No, if animals won't eat it why would it be good for humans. Clear labelling should be enforced on all GMO products

@8WHPWPK answered…1yr

Yes, but all agriculture should be nationalised to ensure that GM technology is used to help feed more people, not to benefit wealthy corporations.
