US debate begins on biotech food
THE US Food and Drug Administration has instigated a debate on bio-engineered food with a series of three public hearings.
The Financial Times reports strong interest in the hearings which will take place in Chicago, Washington DC and California.
The American public has up to now been relatively unconcerned about genetically modified crops.
