UK Scientific Adviser Making Case for GM Crops

The new Chief Scientific Adviser in the United Kingdom says the case for genetically modified food is getting stronger because of its importance as a tool to feed a growing global population. Sir Mark Walport says he aims to offer ministers the best and most accurate advice on all aspects of science policy - including the introduction of GM crops. He believes it's his job to set out the scientific case - but notes it's up to the politicians to decide how to use that science. Still - he says the scientific case for GM is becoming stronger and stronger.
