Biotech taboos taken to task

8th September 1995 at 01:00
People distrust biotechnology for reasons ranging from religious taboos to considering it unethical to tamper with nature. With the aim of educating the public about the subject, the Food and Drink Federation is launching a Biotechnology Communications Forum in York on September 18. Further meetings are planned throughout the country. Details: Carol Elsasser, FDF, 6 Catherine Street, London WC2 5JJ. Tel. 0171 836 2460.
