Indonesia: Transgenic products safe, say scientists

After a French researcher published an alarming study on genetically modified crops, Indonesian scientists say they will scrutinize research from around the globe before commenting on the use of transgenic products in the country.

“We will check empirical data from independent research bodies to determine whether the genetically-modified products are safe for consumption, Bambang Purwantara, a member of the National Genetically-Modified Product Biosafety Commission, said at a press conference in Jakarta on Friday.

All genetically engineered crops in Indonesia had been “thoroughly” evaluated, Purwantara said. “There’s no need to worry about anything.”
