Holders of negative opinions towards GM food likely to be against other novel food tech

Scientists at NTU Singapore and the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health have found that people who hold negative opinions of genetically-modified (GM) food are likely to feel the same about nano-enabled food — food with nano-additives to enhance flavor, nutrition or prolong shelf life. The ‘spillover effect’ they observed from GM food to nano-enabled food could possibly extend to other novel food technologies as well.
