“Food Evolution,” a new documentary from narrator Neil deGrasse Tyson, attempts to untangle the debate about genetically modified organisms. Alison Van Eenennaam, a professor at the University of California, Davis, will lead a discussion after the film. The event is free and open to the public, so don’t miss it! In addition to deBunking the myths of GMOs, “Food Evolution” also explains the science behind the controversy.
GMOs are not associated with sustainability
The film claims to bring science to the GMO debate, settle relevant GMO safety issues, and prove the importance of GMOs in food security. It is a slick propaganda piece that attempts to wrap itself around Neil deGrasse Tyson’s narration while simultaneously promoting GMOs as safe to eat and necessary for world food security. Unfortunately, Food Evolution fails to deliver on its promises and remains a flawed propaganda piece, even if it has been spreading on college campuses. The documentary’s marketing strategy is clearly a slick propaganda piece that does not serve its cause.
They are harmful to human health
The documentary Food Evolution is a provocative attempt to make sense of the GMO debate by examining the science behind the rhetoric. The film is co-produced by filmmaker Scott Hamilton Kennedy and narrator Neil deGrasse Tyson, and it features several on-camera experts. While the film tries to explain scientific concepts, the underlying problem is that many consumers simply can’t discern the veracity of scientific claims and sources. Food Evolution recognizes that the GMO debate is not purely scientific; it’s also about financial interests and fear. As such, it also looks at how the underlying issue of fake news is able to influence so many people.
They are toxic to the environment
In “Food Evolution,” real scientists and activists debate whether the food industry is harming the environment. Producers of the film say they did not receive funding from the food industry and were free to tell the truth. The Institute for Food Technologists funded the film, but the filmmakers retained creative control. The documentary’s tone is gentle and posed as an inconvenient truth for organic boosters. But the question remains: Is food evolution really bad?
They are associated with corporate greed
Despite its many critics, Food Evolution continues to generate debate about organic food and genetic engineering. It also reflects the complex issues surrounding nutrition and the conflict between facts and beliefs. Food Evolution also highlights anger and fear about corporate greed and erosion of trust in authority figures. But are the critics right? Or is the documentary just another sham? Let’s take a closer look. We can find out for ourselves by watching Food Evolution.
