Genetically Modified Food: Panacea or Poison

  • Published 1 year ago

This documentary highlights the dangers of genetically modified food products as there has been no study on the safety of these products on human beings. And the claims of them being absolutely safe remain unverified. Even the scientific community is divided on this issue having radically different views, leaving the proving factor on its continued use, which also has remained unverified by huge corporations and manufacturing giants.

The rise for the need of these food products is testified by the fact that the global demand for food has doubled in the last thirty years, and scientists in a desperate attempt to feed the billions have discovered how to manipulate DNA, the blueprint of life, and produce what they claim are stronger, more disease-resistant crops.

But at the same time in the absence of proof of their safety they are subject to fervent criticisms decrying the use of humans as guinea pigs. This intriguing film leaves the viewers to decide whether these genetically modified food is a panacea or poison for them.
