GM food – openness is essential
SECRECY and not telling the whole truth lead to mistrust. Deviousness must be avoided at all stages of development of these new genetically-modified crops and their processing and marketing.
Inform the public, and they will be able to make an informed choice. Hide information, and they will refrain or react adversely.
