       Short Description:The 1999 European sample survey of public perceptions of biotechnology reveals widespread opposition to genetically modified (GM) food in much of Europe, but public attitudes to medical and environmental applications remain positive. r nTwo additional conclusions can be drawn: i) if an application of biotechnology has no clear benefits, it is unlikely to receive public support; ii) that so many, even among the supporters of biotechnology, should be troubled about its implications for the 'natural order' suggests that the next stages in international debate and decisionmaking must go beyond evidence based on solely scientific risk.
