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

A movie producer with no history of involvement in agriculture took a look at the case presented by both supporters and opponents of genetically modified crops used for food. He looked at it from the perspective of farmers, researchers and consumers concerned about the health and well-being of their families. In the end he chose to support what he learned from good science. The penalty for doing so, for him and his colleagues, was/is to be vilified by a small group who reject any suggestion that genetic engineering (or genetic modification if you will) is anything more than just an evil scheme to poison people because of greed. I have seen Food Evolution three times. It's both informative and entertaining. You should definitely view it too when/if you get the chance.
