A report released by Biotechnology Australia (BA) yesterday indicates a growing level of acceptance of genetically improved foods worldwide, despite radical activists’ attempts to force us all to choose “organic” foods instead. The BA study found increased acceptance levels in every country studied, including Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, France, and the United States. Spokesman Craig Cormick told a food technology conference that only 2% of food-buying American consumers in a January survey said that they were concerned about transgenic foods, putting this supposed worry far behind food packaging, handling, contamination, and pesticides. Biotechnology Australia is the Australian body responsible for monitoring biotechnology issues.
