Russian researches from the National Association for Genetic Safety (NAGS) believe such experiments should be conducted publicly, so that people can see the process with their own eyes, and thus trust, or not, the study.
“This is a unique experiment,” project author Elena Sharoykina told RT. “There hasn’t been anything like it before ~open, public research by opponents and supporters of GMO.”
“But we will have a chance to understand in what direction we should move,” she said. “If this research proves negative influence, and supporters of GMOs accept it, the next step should be a moratorium on products with GMOs in Russia.”
