Continuing our research on public perception of modern biotechnology in Poland this time we surveyed the knowledge of modern biotechnology between Poles. The representative sample of Polish society (over 1000 Poles aged over 15 years) answered questions like: did you eat genes for breakfast?, are genes in tomato?, is BSE a product of genetic engineering? We found surprisingly good familiarity (awareness) of background biotechnology. Over 40% of Poles know that all tomatoes contain genes, over 20% eat genes for breakfast and one third know that BSE is not a result of genetic engineering.
