Nearly 75% happy to eat GM food

Almost three quarters of the Dutch would have no problem eating genetically manipulated food if it has been manipulated to be healthier for you, according to a poll for RTL News. While 70% said they have no objections to the development of GM plants, 64% are opposed to genetically manipulating animals. But only 36% wants the new cabinet to stimulate research into GM plants.
