    FAO has settled web pages on biotechnology and supports science based evolution system that would objectively determine the benefits and risks of each individual GMO (http://www.fao.org). This calls for a cautions case by case approach to address legitimate concerns for biotechnology of each product or process prior to its release . However FAO is also aware of the concern about the potential risks passed by several aspects of biotechnologies.
