Abstract

Whether or not there are alternatives to using transgenics, that would be able to satisfy the world's food and nutrition needs, remains open to further scientific investigation. The necessity for using transgenics is not currently well based on available scientific knowledge, in part because the achievements and potential of agroecology have received insufficient scientific attention.
A existência ou não de alternativa ao uso de transgênicos capaz de satisfazer a demanda mundial por alimento e nutrientes é uma questão que permanece aberta à investigação científica. A importância dos transgênicos ainda não está bem fundamentada no conhecimento científico disponível, em parte porque as conquistas e o potencial da agroecologia não foram objeto de atenção científica suficiente.
