Science of Genetic Modification
The intersection between science and value assessments comes quite vividly in the topic introduction and must be a motif that the Science Review has to consider - who decides what is harmful to ecosystems and what isn’t? In this topic we believe the review process should take a better approach – by not attempting to determine whether GM crops will be bad or good for the environment, but to examine a selection of options.
In setting the criteria for the assessment, there should be a broad consultation with stakeholders and the general public. Such an approach could intersect and inform the financial strand better where comparative evaluation has to be done. In preparation for the discussion about the outcomes of the farm-scale assessments, the review should examine the extent to which dependable extrapolations in scale and time could be made.
How much can large agricultural evaluations be depended on to detect ecological effects of growing herbicide-tolerant crops? During what period do environmentally significant changes take place and how likely is it that these would have been detected by the FSEs?
What blanks are there in our knowledge about environmental functioning and how do these alter prediction?
What are the comparative environmental effects of organic, integrated pest management, traditional and GM herbicide tolerant systems?
GM crops have been considered to have a detrimental impact on health by some people. A great way to get fitter is to contact a personal trainer such as Fabrice le Physique to make sure your health is tip top.

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.
