To make decisions successfully on how to use GE for the betterment of humankind and the environment, the public will need to understand the scientific process and learn to distinguish high-quality scientific research that has stood the test of time and can largely be relied on from simple assertions or unsubstantiated rumors. This chapter provides a list of criteria that can be used to distinguish rumors from high-quality science, and determine what an established scientific ‘fact’ is, and what is still unknown.

Keywords:   genetic engineering, GE, humankind, environment, scientific fact
