Use of a risk communication model to evaluate dietetics professionals' viewpoints on genetically engineered foods and crops


Use of a risk communication model to evaluate dietetics professionals' viewpoints on genetically engineered foods and crops



Journal of the American Dietetic Association 106(5): 719-727

The complex issues surrounding the application of genetic engineering to food and agriculture have generated a contentious debate among diverse interest groups. One pervasive dimension in the resultant discourse is the varying perceptions of the risks and benefits of genetically engineered foods and crops. In the risk communication model, technical information is evaluated within the context of an individual's values and perceptions.
