No topic in agriculture is more polarizing or excites emotions like genetically modified (GM) foods. Proponents claim they will be necessary to feed the world. Claimed benefits include increased yields, drought resistance, reduced use of pesticides and lower carbon emissions. Opponents denounce GM foods as a prime example of human overreaching fraught with unknown potential dangers. Is there a sound and safe way out of this dilemma?

What’s the Truth about Genetically Modified Foods? is the fifth topic to be covered in the Camden Conference Discussion Series. Join the Conversation!  The facilitators of the discussion have identified a few great short articles/videos on: What’s the Truth about GM Foods? Please read the articles or watch the videos so that you can actively participate in our discussion at the Camden Public Library from 7:00 to 8:30 PM on January 21, 2014. A link to the articles is on the Camden Conference 2014 web site under “Community Events, What’s the Truth about Genetically Modified Foods?, more information."

Alternatively, a reading copy of the essential articles will be available at the library circulation desk.
