Description

This episode examines the science of genetically modified crops and foods. It begins by explaining, through creative animation, the actual process by which a foreign gene is introduced into a plant. It then examines the actual benefits and risks of the two types of genes currently added to GM crops - the Bt gene to fight insects and the gene that protects the plant against new, more environmentally friendly insecticides. Using documentary footage, along with animation, it defuses some of the mythology and emotion that surrounds this subject. It features Canada's leading experts in this area, as well as farmers that grow GM crops.
