Maple leaf international school, Teda, Tianjin, 300450, China
With the rapid development of contemporary society, increasing number of people begin to pay attention to whether the food they eat are healthy enough. Under such considerable population, the traditional method of growing crops becomes inadequate to meet the needs of the population. As a consequence, scientists invent a new way to grow food called genetic modification. This paper is to investigate the attitudes of people with different ages to GM foods. In order to reach that goal, it conducts a questionnaire survey in Tianjin, China. Serving as the results, the data gathered show that a large part of population older than 40 have a skeptical attitude toward transgenic food and, on the contrary, most of the people younger than 40 hold an optimistic attitude toward the future of transgenic food. In conclusion, the development of GM foods are promising in this city.
