Genetically Modify Food

Genetically modified (GM) foods have been around for decades. Created by modifying the DNA of one organism through the introduction of genes from another, they are developed for a number of different reasons-to fight disease, enhance flavor, resist pests, improve nutrition, survive drought-and are mainly found in our food supply in processed foods using corn, soybeans, and sugar beets, and as feed for farm animals. Across the country and around the world, communities are fighting the cultivation of genetically engineered crops. Are they safe? How do they impact the environment? Can they improve food security? Is the world better off with or without GM food?

Genetically modified foods are foods with altered DNA. Their genetic material has been combined with other forms of life, including other plant forms, insecticides, pesticides, bacteria and viruses. Guest expert Jeffrey Smith, pioneer of the non-GMO movement and founder of the Institute of Responsible Technology, and I discuss some of the most common GMO foods and why they should be avoided.

In this video, we also share three of the newest GMO foods on the market that you may not be aware of. Watch our video to learn more and avoid the harmful side effects of genetically modified foods, which include increased allergies, antibiotic resistance, faster aging and more.

  1. I don't know why they waste time presenting the two sides. I'd be able to tell who is for and who is against just by seeing a picture of them.

  2. 49:45 – She absolutely demolishes his position in a clear, rational manner and his response (and face!) says it all, what a beautiful rebuttal.

  3. For everyone saying that the "Against" are not knowledgeable, think again. They are scientists, and that's how scientists speak. They are convoluted; they speak as if you know everything they do; they criss cross from multiple small studies than jump to macro studies without batting an eyelash. It is one of the worst ways to explain something, but when you dig through their comments, they are articulating many poignant arguments.

  4. "My kids children drink pasteurized milk" because science says it's safe. Wtf? If you look at the research milk is deadly in terms of cholesterol, diabetes, etc.

  5. Why would we have to double food production in the next 30 years when the population won't double and we already make enough food to feed the world?

  6. If I am correct, the "Against" is arguing that there are no long term studies for the health effects of GMOs. They state that only short term studies were conducted only testing for acute illness, which could miss subtle changes that compound over time, like the carcinogenic effect of of cigarettes.

    This can be problematic in two ways: 1. The population is eating something that is damaging directly caused by genetic engineering. 2. Genetic engineering allows the use of pesticides, that would otherwise unusable, to be sprayed on crops, which could have ill effects.

    However, due to the lack of long term studies definitively saying GMOs are bad and the inherent incentive for corporations to downplay any potential harmful effects, it's hard to choose a side.

  7. I watched this to get a better footing on GMO, but I left feeling like there are still points to be discussed.

  8. Wow. The moderator should at least let them wrap up their speech, not just cut them off, 'your time is up!!'

  9. Stop tinkering with nature. Everything has been provided for us. We should be fruitarians. That is what we were originally. Dont eat other living beings that we share the world with! Dont pollute this beautiful plantet!! Dont use contraception!! Dont have more children than you can support. Get exercise and stop wasting time on your iphones, tablets and X boxes!!!

  10. You can see in the eyes of the two panelists in favour of GMO they are thinking "You are all going to die, but we have our place in the NWO, so fuck you"!!!

  11. Look to usa farmer Gabe Brown for more bushel yields and better mixed farming methods without gmo, without ploughing up and killing the soil life, without pestacides or herbicides. For better soil, water retention and for ecology of the earth as a whole, and Elaine Ingham for soil biology. More profits for farmers, better cleaner healthier products for consumers, better health for the nation. Healthier better use of the land overall including less land use. Monsanto would go bust. You will see how monsanto are talking unscientific protectionism of their billion pound profits.

  12. This moderator fucking sucks. I think he wants to use people as simply delivering lines or questions, it's called a conversation – let it happen. He cuts off Bill Nye to suggest he almost asked a question? How about you shut the fuck up and let Bill Nye make a discussion point. Or just continue to cut people off and interrupt people. It should be like a discussion, not John Donovan talking hour.

  13. i guess the layman the question to be asked is,are their any scientific data that's tells us the harmful effects of GMO foods if any?and the answer are no and unclear.so the motion is favored and the oppositions claims are hearsay..

  14. I had the pleasure of watching your debate last night and could not stop myself commenting on it.
    I was brought up in a family of traditional farmers, in an agricultural town in the central Iran. Yes, we had organic farm, out of acres and acres of its land we could only feed three people. We had organic apples, all with their own maggots. Pests and diseases and weeds became so overwhelming that the farm stopped producing any food. All the fertiliser were from our own waste, organic and traditional!!! Yes, this was, is and will be traditional farming if we do not welcome new technology and science into our lives. So, yes, I will vote NO to GMO and stop efforts to find solution to a few problems found in applying new science. After all, we all love maggoty fruit and vegetable, don't we???!!!

  15. I have talked with farmers who do feel the GMO corn / herbicide has caused the diminishing of their honeybees.

  17. We eat all organic! We don't eat dairy, meat or eggs! We don't eat GMO's!
    This was helpful to know the new GMO risks. Sad to know potatoes & Apples are now a problem! This needs to be stopped!!!! Safe food choices are dwindling down so fast! Thank you for the info!

  18. There are people who continue to defend Montanto's GM food, and their efforts to NOT label foods that are genetically modified.

  19. the only thing worth sharing is the good news about the lord and as people come unto him he will change them and they will want to live healthier otherwise you are just condemned to sickness.

  20. My Mom got a tomato with spouts of tomato plants in her fresh tomato and I got a spout in my Apple. We bought them in the same store on the same day. I'm scared to eat. There's a lot of food I stop eating because it' not real food. Now this. People need to stop this. The meds and the vaccines that they give our kids has mercury in them. Flu shoots has mercury in them. I believe this is why people is so sick and has cancer. They talk about fighting cancer, but they feed people this shit. Then pump us full of toxic medication. Wake up people.

  21. If Dr. Axe reminds us to punch that share, hit that like button and subscribe one more time in his videos I am going to track him down and beat the shit out of him. Seriously Dr. Axe, your credibility and level of respect drops every time you remind us to do this. Have you been influenced by how much your making on You Tube that you have gotten this greedy? Yo Josh, keep what's important in sight. Helping people and their over all health.

  22. GMO is a laboratory breeding process that makes seeds that grow plain old ordinary food. There is no 'GMO' in the food itself, that's idiotic and the reason Obama stopped all you anti-science folks' state labeling initiatives.
    GMO is a process, not an ingredient. Same as there are no microwaves in your food after you warm it.

  23. Hey idiots, ALL foods we eat are vastly profoundly modified without exception and that started 10,000 years ago when we first started saving the best seeds.

  24. The wealthy can afford free range, organic food and non fluoridated water. They live longer need less healthcare and their children's genes are not corrupted!!
    When an apple cost more than a bag of chips or a hamburger something is seriously wrong!!
    Monsanto, Big Pharma., Big Agra. Healthcare and the Insurance Companies are all connected!
    Make them sick! Keep them sick! Charge the tax payers and We Will Get Paid!!!
    Keep your population in poor health and in desperate need of Government Help!!

  25. Currently, 64 countries around the world REQUIRE LABELING of genetically modified foods. Unlike most other developed countries – such as 28 nations in the European Union, Japan, Australia, Brazil, Russia and even China – The USA has NO laws requiring labeling of genetically modified foods.

    GMO food is the leading cause of allergies in children, infertility of young healthy women and the excessive amount of cancer cases we have these days… the sad part is, the government will never admit this..

    This generation of children are being raised with GMO food and MANDATORY GMO vaccines, it makes me sick knowing I do not have an obvious understanding of what I am feeding my daughter and what is being injected into her body in order for her to attend school…..

    I buy organic fruit and veggies.. grass fed meat and eggs.. organic almond milk… but everything in between is unknown!! It is unknown because, our disgusting former President, Barack Obama passed laws allowing Monsanto to breeze through the GMO approval process and allowed Monsanto employees to be hired at the FDA, EPA and other government positions of authority to review and approve the GMO usage and procedures in the USA..

    The sad truth is… most people do not know the definition of GMO… they have heard of it, they know it is bad, but they don't fully understand the extent of it… they don't understand that because 93% of corn is GMO corn that EVERYTHING WITH CORN ON THE INGREDIENT LABEL HAS GMO PRODUCT IN IT, unless is says "non-gmo" or "organic" … and 99% of food that is in a bag, box, bottle or can at your local grocery store will not be organic or non-gmo… this includes, cereal, oatmeal, canned soup, etc…

    So many people assume that the government has their best interest in mind… and that they would not do anything that would harm them… but, the truth is once the government decided GMO labels were not mandatory, this decision made it very clear that they are trying to hide the truth from us…

    We all need to share this video… and wake up the masses… and speak up and demand GMO labels to start and then go for a complete GMO ban in the USA!!! We need to do this before it is too late! The real seeds making real food for us and the animals we eat will become extinct or unintentionally modified by cross-contamination … the majority of the existing soil in the USA is contaminated… and the adjacent organic farms are in danger of cross-contamination due to the seed and water run off from the GMO crops….

    This has been going on since 1994… and it has been quietly growing ever since…. it's now completely out of control and eventually we will not have any options… Monsanto money is attempting to buy out organic farms… they are persistent and they are bullies with pockets full of money and they have connections with people in powerful positions within the FDA and EPA… let's not let the Organic Farmers fight to feed us healthy food… let's fight for the Organic Farmers!

    Please talk about GMO food and the law stating GMO food does not require labels in USA…

    Wake up everyone you know and ask them to do the same!! Our children's future depends on us… do this for the children!
