Over 100 Noble laureates slam Greenpeace for opposing GMOs - ảnh 1

(VOVworld) - Scientists claimed that organisations opposed to modern plant breeding, with Greenpeace at their lead, have misrepresented risks, benefits, and impacts of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
In a letter, more than 100 Noble laureates have slammed Greenpeace for opposing biotechnological innovations in agriculture and urged the environment NGO to end its opposition to genetically modified organisms (GMOs) technology.
The letter, addressed to Greenpeace, the United Nations and governments around the world, was seeking support for genetically modified rice variety called Golden Rice which is developed to tackle vitamin A deficiency in the developing and under-developed world, especially Asia and Africa. 
Scientific and regulatory agencies around the world have repeatedly and consistently found crops and foods improved through biotechnology to be as safe as, if not safer than those derived from any other method of production.
