Public attitude hardens against GM food

NEGATIVE attitudes among the public to genetically modified (GM) crops are rising dramatically, says The Guardian.

The report details the contents of a leaked internal report made to Monsanto, the company at the forefront of selling GM crops.

The research was carried out by Stanley Greenberg, of Greenberg Research, who has also served as an advisor to President Bill Clinton and the British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The Guardian prints more material from the secret report.

Monsanto representatives and the environmentalists debate the issue.
