The question: Can we get unbiased information?
Probably not (at least all views agree on something). The problem here is one of interpretation: people's beliefs and motives influence their view of the information they provide, even in good faith.
People disagree about the extent to which different groups are able to get their point across about GM.
Does everything we hear come from the GM developers?
A great deal of information on GM is issued by non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and scientists who have genuine doubts about the interpretation of the data produced by scientists and companies developing GM.
There is a lack of balance in terms of access to media - the genuine documented scepticism of scientists involved with GM is rarely expressed in the wider media.

Welcome to The History of GM Nation website. We provide you with all the background to the GM food debate that occurred at the turn of the century, which led to the government sponsored GM Nation public debate website being set up.
On this website you will find the history of that public debate, plus a guide not only to the findings of various scientific studies into the subject, but also the results of the public debate itself, all set out for you to enable you to make an informed decision for yourself.
We get all sorts of enquiries about diet and well being, so to make it easier for you to make healthy choices we try to set out the facts in as clear and concise a manner as possible. Get in touch with us if would like to know more.
Live longer run further
If you're looking to live longer than perhaps this time to join the gym. Vitamins and bodybuilding supplements are all very good but without physical exercise and conditioning of your body, the stresses and strains we put on ourselves can easily take their toll. Perhaps joining a gym can seem too onerous, the range of barbells funny machines running machines can seem like a maze to the new beginner. One solution is to employ a personal trainer to show you round show you the ropes.
It is hard to know what to think with regard the issue of genetically modified foods. While there does seem to be a general consensus reached over the years of ongoing debate, in the minds of many significant doubt remains. It is vital therefore for each individual, whether it be for their own sake or that of their children, to arm themselves with all the available information that surrounds the subject before reaching a conclusion regarding what is best for them. Here at the History of GM Nation website we hope to provide you with that information. Please contact us if you have any questions.
