HORIZON: IS GM SAFE?
Examines the most recent facts and findings on genetically-modified foods, and considers whether the risks outweigh the benefits or vice versa. As early as 1974, some scientists were expressing grave concerns over research into genetic engineering. They were concerned about the risk of creating and spreading new strains of bacteria. Today, some of these same scientists believe that the safeguards are adequate and that GM crops are a possible answer to world hunger.
