With genetically modified foods (or GMOs) being such a controversial and hotly debated topic, it was only a matter of time before somebody took all of that information and synthesized it into an understandable and informative video.
That’s what YouTube channel “Kurzgesagt – In A Nutshell” has done in this nine-minute exposé on everything you ever needed to know about GMO foods. The channel aims to use all of the information it has gathered to answer the following question:
“Are GMOs bad for your health? Or is this fear unfounded?”
Over 600 hours of careful research and analysis went into the making of this video, which touches on topics including safety, health, research, ethics, and the future of GMO foods. And in case you want to do all of that research for yourself, the channel did post their entire laundry list of sources in the video’s description for viewing.
I’ve been a strong proponent that ethical GMOs are good and necessary for the planet. As someone deeply concerned with the future of food, I’m glad to see all of this careful research and accurate takes on GMOs made palatable into a straightforward, eye-catching, and well-composed video.
This is definitely the ultimate video guide on everything about GMOs you ever wanted and needed to know, and puts a definitive stamp on the answer to the legitimacy and safety of GMOs.
