Resumo:  Discrepancies in the attitude between US and UK consumers toward application of biotechnology in crop production and medicine were examined using data from mail and online surveys. Results showed that more than 31% (46%) of US (UK) respondents were opposed to biotech foods while only 16% (18%) opposed biotech medicine, respectively. Perceived risks and benefits of agro-biotechnology and medical biotechnology were significant in determining overall attitude toward application of biotechnology in agriculture and medicine i.e., perceived risks (benefits) caused consumers to oppose (support) application of biotechnology in food production and medicine.
