The Precautionary Principle Applied to Deliberate Release of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). By: Myhr, Anne Ingeborg; Traavik, Terje. Microbial Ecology in Health & Disease. Jun99, Vol. 11 Issue 2, p65-74

This article investigates the potential pros and cons of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), positing whether they will contribute to sustainable development of world food supplies and economic prosperity or whether these organisms will initiate serious irreversible economic damage. This article focuses on the scientific basis for pending regulation of GMO use and how risk assessment methodology can be used to predict potential ecological hazards emanating from the use of GMOs. The primary focus is predicated upon prospects of secondary ecological effects that may arise from the large scale introduction of GMOs into food production.
