GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOOD - THE FACTS AND THE FICTION
There are now more GM experiments taking place in Lincolnshire than in
any other area of Great Britain.
What type of experiments are they?
Are they safe?
Will they have a detrimental effect on conventional and organic farming?
Will they threaten our wildlife?
Thousands of tons of GM food are being fed to farm animals every day.
Will this affect our dairy and meat products?
Will it have an effect on our livestock?
Is GM food safe to eat?
What are the risks and what are the benefits?
This is a new science and there are many questions that need to be
We have organised this meeting in order to obtain some answers.
Guest speakers will include independent scientists and representatives
The Government (?) The bio-tech Industry NFU

For good or bad, this technology will have a profound and lasting impact
on our future. For good or bad, the effects will be here forever.
