Episode 13: Organic vs GM food

Organic vs GM food

There are a wide range of benefits to genetically modified food in agriculture. However, I was intrigued by an experience I had several years ago while on a degree in human genetics. A senior member of the department with a range of genetic discoveries to his name was actually against genetically modified food. He was largely alone on that campaign, but it got me thinking. In this episode we discuss the difference between Organic vs GM food from the perspective of our health. We also interview PhD researcher in Plant sciences at Cambridge University, Carol Ibe on this theme.
