GM foods are definitely on the menu at a range of cafe-bars in Leeds this week - though only to be chewed over in the mind.

‘Frankenstein foods’ and the so-called Frankenstein effect are included in a week-long series of scientific discussions and meetings beginning today (September 27) at cafe-bars in Leeds.

The programme is organised by Cafe Scientifique's Duncan Dallas and features talks by leading scientists and writers.
