Mary has been looking for articles about the 'rights and wrongs of GM foods' in the UK for a project she is carrying out for her course. This is one of the articles she found:

Oda, L.M. and Soares, B.E.C. 2000. Genetically modified food: economic aspects and public acceptance in Brazil. Trends in Biotechnology 18(5), pp. 188-190.
