GMOs may become a necessity for Kazakhstan

Genetically modified products may become a necessity for Kazakhstan, Tengrinews.kz reports citing Director General of Kazakhstan National Biotechnologies Center Yerlan Ramankulov.

According to him, the possibility of a negative effect of use of GMO (genetically modified organisms) is important and should be considered. “There are currently no confirmed facts of any negative effect of GMO use on people’s health. But despite of that, it is necessary to keep rational precautions towards GMO, as it is still impossible to estimate the remote risks,” Ramankulov said. He added that no types of GMO are officially registered in Kazakhstan, but, according to him, genetically modified goods are already supplied to Kazakhstan and their flow increases every year.
