7 members of Pontifical Science Academy promote genetically modified foods

Note by Marc Aupiais

According to a secular report, 7 leading Vatican scientists have made a statement supporting GM foods, and asking that safety regulations be relaxed significantly.

Ironically, the scientists along with 33 others, site lack of harm (under the current regulations) to human beings and the environment to justify their stance.

The Pontifical Academy for Science has not officially endorsed their recent stance. Catholics are not morally or doctrinally obligated to accept ordinary pronouncements from the Vatican's academies. Even if the pontifical academy accepted the stance that GM regulations be scrapped, Catholics could still oppose or prevent this move with a clean, responsible conscience.
