Nearly 70% of Chinese consumers in a recent survey expressed objections to genetically modified rice.
The survey result, released by Greenpeace China, found that about 60% of Chinese consumers were against all kinds of genetically modified food, including rice, oil and soymilk.
The survey also found most consumers do not know that the government has approved certain varieties of genetically modified rice for scientific research.
The English People’s Daily Online quoted an agriculture expert as saying that while public opinion in China tends to be suspicious of genetically modified food, engineered soy bean oil and corn now account for a considerable share of the food found in the domestic market.
