India’s prime minister calls for a scientific approach to GM crops

India’s Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh called for a scientific approach for dealing with contentious issues such as genetically modified food. Addressing the centenary session of 100th Science Congress on January 3,  2013, he welcomed a debate on genetically modified foods, and said faith and fear should give way to proper debate and analysis. Speaking at the Indian Science Congress, he said “Complex issues, be they genetically modified food or nuclear energy or exploration of outer space, cannot be settled by faith, emotion, and fear but by structured debate, analysis, and enlightenment.”
