Description

In spite of the scientific evidence in its favor and over a decade of uneventful experience in N. America, GM crops and foods continue to engender fear, particularly in Europe. This companion piece to The Seeds of a New Era provides a thorough discussion of the non-scientific factors behind these fears. These include political and economic concerns about a loss of competition and choice, the psychology of risk perception and philosophical ideas about 'natural' vs. 'unnatural'. This episode also looks at future uses of GM crop technology, such as molecular farming for drugs and other valuable proteins.
