Genetically Modified Foods for Human Health and Nutrition: The Scientific Basis for Benefit/Risk Assessment

C. Smith and L. Shukla (editors)

A special issue of Trends in Food Science and Technology, Vol. 14, Issues 5-8, pp 169-338, 2003

This special issue reflects the discussions at the final of three ICSU workshops organized to evaluate the scientific basis for the assessment of potential risks and benefits to human health and nutrition of the use of genetically modified food (GMF) crops. International experts in nutrition, medicine, toxicology, molecular biology, microbiology, genetics, economics, and social science, including representatives of the science unions, participated in the workshop, which was held in Manchester, UK, in May 2002. Prior to the meeting, invited experts in relevant fields prepared working papers, which form the basis of the special issue. Each paper was modified and finalized at the workshop in the light of discussions at the workshop. Only publicly available information and research results have been included. This special issue is intended to serve the increasing dialogue between society and science and thus contribute to ongoing discussions about the application of the technological innovations that make GMFs possible.
