The initiative for the research followed concerns over the allegations that regular consumption of Genetically Modified Ingredients causes cancer. Despite the concerns however, no studies globally have been able to prove that GM Foods have caused any human health issues. Locally, the MOH was contacted and they advised that they have not undertaken any research in the matter. The Consumer Protection Act, 2010 requires that the presence of any Genetically Modified Ingredients should be disclosed on the packaging of goods. The challenge however is the inability for testing and monitoring by authorities.
