Abstract:
The uncertainty of hazards resulting from consuming GM foods over the course of the last decade has been unique. During this time, the risk scene has observed continuous debate, change and public health concerns, in particular those that concern food 'scares' or 'panics'. In response, there is now a growing trend for policymakers to adopt deliberative democratic methods in order to gather public views in an attempt to pacify their concerns. This thesis explores two main schools of thought. First, it delves into the 'world' of food policy. Second, it explores precautionary approaches to GM food consumption 'hazards' or 'risks'.
