Monsanto, now part of Bayer, is the world’s largest agricultural biotechnology company. Monsanto has been at the forefront of genetic engineering since the late 1990s when they gained government approval for their first modified soybean product. This has sparked a heated debate over whether or not genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, pose a risk to human health.
Since then, more than 20 million hectares of land have been planted with GMOs worldwide and their use in food production has risen dramatically. However, many people remain concerned about the potential risks associated with these products and are looking for answers.
A recent documentary called ‘Food Evolution’ delves into this controversial topic by interviewing experts from both sides of the argument. It examines how GMO technology is used to create nutritionally enhanced crops that can help tackle food insecurity and climate change in many countries around the globes. The film also explores which approaches present the least risk to human health and wellbeing.
This thought-provoking documentary is essential viewing for anyone who wants to be informed on this issue and make sense of what can be a confusing and overwhelming topic. We encourage everyone to watch ‘Food Evolution’ and draw their own conclusions on one of the most important topics facing us today.
