European public opinion has expressed concerns over food security and the security of research, development and production of healthcare products.

This is the conclusion of a TNS NIPO poll commissioned by the Public Advice International Foundation in consultation with patients organisations conducted in six EU Memeber States: Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and the UK.
The Taylor Nelson Sofres plc NIPO research, Production of essential health ingredients in the EU, was commissioned by the Public Advice International Foundation in The Hague. The results of this opinion poll were presented on March 26th of March 2007 at the Maritim Hotel in Berlin.
