As Chair of the NI Assembly’s All Party Group on Science and Technology, I always welcome the fantastic range of speakers we host at Stormont throughout the year.
This week, we had a particularly interesting discussion on the use of GM Food technology. I’ll be posting a series of videos over the next couple of days, highlighting a series of presentations and arguments about whether GM foods are safe and should they be explored further.
Professor David McConnell suggested not only is GM technology the safest scientific method developed over recent times, but that it is invaluable. He also argued that consumers are being misled as many will be eating imported GM foods every day.
