YEREVAN. – No country has yet announced, once and for all, whether or not genetically modified organism (GMO)-containing food is harmful for health.
Ashot Harutyunyan, Deputy Minister of Agriculture of Armenia, noted the aforementioned at Friday’s parliamentary hearings on GMOs.
“We want the truth to be accurately presented to the public,” added Harutyunyan, who was the main speaker at this event.
The Armenian official said human health issues are researched, and that is why the principle of warning that the given food contains GMO is important.
“Now, researchers should give a final answer: Is it good, or bad?” Ashot Harutyunyan stressed, in particular. “If it turns out that it’s unsafe for human health, no one is ‘absent in the head’ to use that product.”
