Food Evolution Event

Monday, October 30, 2017 - 7:00am
Event Type: 

Narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson, Food Evolution wrestles with the emotions and the evidence driving one of
the most heated arguments of our time: GMOs and food. Traveling from Hawaiian papaya groves, to banana
farms in Uganda to the cornfields of Iowa, the film looks at the polarized debate on GMOs and the fear,
distrust and confusion surrounding the topic. It enlists such experts and icons as Mark Lynas, Alison Van
Eenennaam, Jeffrey Smith, Andrew Kimbrell, Vandana Shiva, Robert Fraley, Marion Nestle and Bill Nye,
as well as farmers and scientists from around the world, in an effort to separate the hype from the science
and unravel the debate around food.

Alison Van Eenennaam, Professor and Extension Animal Genomics and Biotechnology Specialist at University of California,
Davis, will provide brief opening remarks and lead a discussion immediately following the 90-minute film.
