Abstract

The use of genetic modification (GM) technologies to modify food crops provides one of the most hotly debated and often discussed applications of science. As the science develops, new generations of GM crops will be produced and current consumer views might change. This brief paper discusses mechanisms by which the complexity of decision-making at the regulatory level might be better understood by the public and hence provide tools for individuals to inform their own views and purchasing choices.
