As farm women in Nebraska, often we are asked questions about foods grown using genetically-modified organisms (GMO). We’ve helped answer this question several times when Leslie and Hilary talked to NTV about GMOs and the importance of enhancing consumer trust in our food, in our “speak up” series video when Suzanne from Iowa talks about the benefits of food biotechnology, or when Diane shares about GMO foods with Brownfield Ag News.
Today, we want to share one video developed out of a five-part series by BestFoodFacts.org. Included in the series are videos on general information, food safety, nutrition, labeling and environmental impacts.
The video below explores food safety issues related to GM foods through a conversation between an Illinois mom and blogger, Betsie Estes, and a plant molecular geneticist, Dr. Sally Mackenzie, from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
