Narrated byNeil deGrasse Tyson
Amid a brutally polarized debate marked by passion, suspicion, and confusion, Food Evolution explores the controversy surrounding GMOs and food.
Traveling from Hawaiian papaya groves, to banana farms in Uganda, to the cornfields of Iowa, Food Evolution wrestles with the emotions and the science driving both sides of one of the most heated arguments of our time.
“When results are repeated and found to be true — that is objective, scientific truth. That is the kind of truth people should base legislation on. If you start basing laws that are not anchored in objective truths, it is the beginning of the end of an informed democracy.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson
"With a soft tone, respectful to opponents but insistent on the data, "Food Evolution" posits an inconvenient truth for organic boosters to swallow: In a world desperate for safe, sustainable food, G.M.O.s may well be a force for good."
"It's a compelling argument, in a film that may well change a few minds - or at least inspire some heartfelt post-screening arguing."
"A polished and provocative call for activists to be as scientifically minded as they believe they are."
