Three cheers for biotech products?
The public's basic distrust of biotechnological innovations arises from the people's concern over their effect on food supply and health. The government's lack of credibility in imposing regulations covering the application of innovations has further burdened the biotechnology industry. The industry, therefore, needs to assure the public of the potential advantages and safety of the new products. On the other hand, the US government must show that it can effectively regulate the use of technological innovations. Complete public disclosure of data and assurance from the industry and the government will enhance public acceptance of biotechnology.
