We live in a world of fake news, and it’s getting harder to know what to think. How can citizens judge the safety and utility of new technologies? Genetic modification (GM) – a process in which useful genes are added to crops – has attracted controversy. The movie Food Evolution depicts communities, researchers and farmers grappling with different views surrounding use of GM methods for crop improvement. Introduced by Jonathan Jones, The Sainsbury Laboratory.
