Holders of unfavourable attitudes towards genetically modified food likely to be against other novel food technologies, NTU-Harvard team finds

Published on : 11-Jun-2020

Scientists at NTU Singapore and the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health have found that people who hold negative opinions of genetically-modified (GM) food are likely to feel the same about nano-enabled food - food with nano-additives to enhance flavour, nutrition or prolong shelf life. This "spillover effect" observed from GM food to nano-enabled food could possibly extend to other novel food technologies as well.
