FOOD EVOLUTION Screening and Q&A

June 24, 2017
4:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Village Cinema East, 189 2nd Ave., New York, NY

In the GMO debate, both pro and anti camps claim science is on their side. Who’s right? FOOD EVOLUTION shows how easily misinformation, confusion and fear can overwhelm objective analysis. How do we ensure that our food supply is safe, and that everyone has enough to eat? How do we feed the world while also protecting the planet? Has genetic engineering increased or decreased pesticide use? Are GMO foods bad for your health? And, most importantly, what data, evidence and sources are we using to approach these important questions? Learn more about the film at the website.
