About Our Site
GeneticallyModifiedFoods was formed to offer a unique reference point on comphrensive advice on genetically modified foods.
Genetically modified (GM) foods have been a well-publicised topic for years now but their ability to incite passion and controversy doesn't appear to be going away anytime soon. What we eat is far from being a simple act. Instead, the way our foods are engineered or produced can have an enormous impact on the world and on our health.
But is this impact a positive or negative one? For many people who don't quite understand all of the different sides of the debate, finding out the answers can be tough. To make it easier, we created this website to give you the facts in a format and language that are comfortable to read and understand. We pick apart the science and offer it up in a way that - quite simply - makes sense.
In return, we ask that you make an informed decision about GM foods by taking into account all sides of the debate. Whether you choose to support GM foods or you condemn the technology, you have the power to make a difference.
On GM foods, our hope is that you care about the foods you eat and the effects they may have on other people as well as the environment.
We encourage readers to share the information freely as well as open the subject up for further discussion with friends, family and anyone else who wants to learn more about their food and how their choices can impact us all.
Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.
Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.
