Storyline

Food Evolution looks at one of the most critical questions facing the world today-that of food security-and demonstrates the desperate need for common sense, solid information, and calm logical deliberation. Using the often angry and emotional controversy over genetically-modified foods as its entry point, Food Evolution shows how easily fear and misinformation can overwhelm objective, evidence-based analysis. Food Evolution takes the position that science and scientists hold the key to solving the food crisis. But whose science? In the GMO debate, both sides claim science is on their side. Who's right? How do we figure this out? What does this mean for the larger issues of food security, sustainability, and environmental well-being? Food Evolution seeks to answer these critically important questions. Written by Future Food 2050

Funded by scientists, actual science dominates fear.
9 September 2017 | by lardbeetleSee all my reviews

This is the only documentary on the subject of food myths that is funded by actual scientists - not the organic industry, not activist organizations trying to scare you into donating. There is no debate between scientists about GM. It's between scientists and science advocates, and members of the general public hoodwinked by activists and industry lobbyists to fear safe foods.
