Food Evolution

Rick is joined by journalist, author and Genetic Literacy Project executive director Jon Entine in interviewing Academy Award nominated Scott Hamilton Kennedy, director of the provocative new documentary Food Evolution, narrated by astrophysicist and science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson. They are joined by prominent agricultural scientists Kevin Folta and Alison van Eenennaam. The documentary presents the evidence for and against the question of the safety of GMOs in our farming and food system, looks at the various crops that have been developed using crop biotechnology and explores how and why our food production has become such a hot button public issue. It also addresses the questions of ‘corporate control’ of our food system and the role that activist nonprofits are playing in attempting to discredit agricultural biotechnology.
