The Future of Food
On this week's radio program Beyond Organic, join host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network (ENN.com), to get an in depth look at the documentary The Future of Food.
"There's a revolution going on in the farm fields and on the dinner tables of America a revolution that's being fought behind closed doors of corporate boardrooms and government agencies over the use of genetically modified organisms in our food," says the film
More than 34 percent of the U.S. corn crop and 75 percent of the soy bean crop are genetically modified. As a result, nearly all Americans eat genetically modified food everyday, in products with soy oils, corn syrups, cotton seed oil, and more.
The Future of Food unravels the complex web of market and political forces that are changing the nature of what we eat. Food has gone from being a basic need to part of a larger billion dollar battle to control the world's food production.
This week's Beyond Organic guests include documentary director, writer, and producer Deborah Koons Garcia and advisor and executive director of the Center for Food Safety, Andrew Kimbrell.
