55% of Italians favour continuing GMO research, 52% would consider buying biotech food
Futuragra, an Italian cultural association of farmers and scientific advisors, announced the results of a survey conducted by ISPO for the introduction of biotechnologies in Italy.
55% of Italians favour continuing GMO research, while 52% would consider buying biotech food.
"Most of the population (52%) agrees that if it is legal to sell GMO products, it should also be legal to grow them. To 56% of the respondents, it is unfair to allow foreign growers to cultivate GMO crops and then sell them in Italy whileItalian farmers are prohibited from doing the same."
