The Government wants a renewed debate on GM foods

The Government is calling for a renewed public debate about gentically modified (GM) crops.With concern growing about world food shortages, it is surely right to reconsider the role of GM crops in the global production of food. If GM is indeed a technology with significant potential, there may be a possibility for preventing many millions of deaths from starvation and, unless there are pressing reasons to suppress the technology, there is a moral obligation to explore this potential. So are there any such pressing reasons?
