Yes, but require the labelling of foods that are genetically modified

@4TC4JQ6from New South Wales  answered…2yrs

Yes, but under capitalism all GM foods are exploited for competition

@4W5SYJ3Greenfrom Queensland  answered…2yrs

I don't really agree with GM food but the term is a bit misleading as most foods we now eat have been "genetically engineered" eg. Broccoli didn't used to exist. Genetics are important in feeding the world. But I do think producers should not be able to patent seeds and there should be labelling. Crops should only be grown in enclosed places so as not to contaminate nearby other crops.

Yes, but only after rigorous testing to ensure environmental safety and regulated for human consumption.

@9353BBF answered…5mos

Yes; where safe and environmentally friendly to do so, the use of, labelled, genetically engineered crops and foods should be permitted.

@92XSQTLGreen answered…5mos

Yes as long as they are modified to be 100% safe and it is labelled so customers are aware of risks

@92F7GSZ answered…6mos

Yes but in general food warnings/labels and government checks on compliance need to be increased

@8ZLMKPH answered…7mos

People have got to eat. I don't believe the genetically modified foods has as much nutrition value

@8ZHYK8NLabor answered…7mos

Yes, but have more labelling and regulation and funding to make sure environmental and impact to humans are known

@8Z55C7SLiberal answered…8mos

Yes, but require the proper labelling informing that they are modified and have undergone testing that they are safe to consume

@8XL2M9QOne Nation answered…11mos

over 90% of all crops and even some animals are genetically modified, so this is a stupid question for ignorant people.

@8WXSCXZLiberal Democrat answered…11mos

Yes, but the government should incentivise business's not to create them.

@8WKGHY8 answered…12mos

Producers should not be able to patent seeds and require to label the genetically modified foods

@8VQPVZ3Green answered…1yr

@8TLHQKVGreen answered…1yr

Yes, only with extensive research on the potential environmental impacts of altering the genes of crops eg. super weeds

@8TCB5WTPirate Party answered…1yr

Yes, but producers shall not be allowed to patent seeds AND foods that are genetically modified must be labelled

@8QWKK2J answered…2yrs

Yes but must be incredibly regulated and health checked but I would prefer non modified food.

@8PD787J answered…2yrs

Yes, particularly if they have reduced environmental impacts, less resource intensive and have higher yields

@8NX7LXP answered…2yrs

Yes but not for food crops until further research has been done on the potential risks associated

@8M853JB answered…2yrs

Yes but heavy regulations including labelling and the inability to patent the seeds

@8GKH5Z2 answered…2yrs

No, but we should invest significantly more in research about genetically engineered foods and crops.
