Scientists Investigate GM Food Awareness in Enugu, Nigeria

May 25, 2016

Researchers from the University of Nigeria conducted a study to identify  the level of awareness on genetically modified food of food consumers in Enugu, Nigeria. Enugu is an ancient coal-city of great political, commercial and socio-economic importance.

Results of the survey showed that most of the respondents were not very much aware (36.7%) about GM food. The top sources of information about GM foods were television (38.33%), radio (33.33%), and family/friends (30%). The researchers recommended increased publicity about GM food to enable food consumers make informed choices.
