• The Precautionary principle is triggered when threats are identified.
• Misunderstandings of the PP often relate to the ill-defined category of “GMOs”.
• Overturning the burden of proof is a misuse of the PP.
• A very strict approach to agri-food biotech regulation should not invoke the PP.
• Any jump from singular cases to the “GMO” pseudo-concept is illogical.
References to the Precautionary principle (PP) in relation to “GMOs” are commonplace. Those who oppose the DNA recombinant approach to create new agricultural products either have not read the PP (misunderstanding), or they want to exploit the PP for their propaganda while forcing it (misuse). Proponents of a stricter approach to the regulation of biotechnologies must forge a new expression, since the PP is something else – historically and theoretically. In any case, a legitimate very circumspect attitude, to be coherent, must be applied to each and every biotechnology, not only to “GMOs”.
