GMO Times–Nathaneal Johnson, GRIST

According to the NY Times “Fears about the harmful effects of eating GM foods have proved to be largely without scientific basis.” Oddly the front page headline emphasized a different point: Doubts About A Promised Bounty–Genetically Modified Crops Have Failed to Lift Yields and Ease Pesticide Use. Grist’s Nathaneal Johnson seems to have studied the GMO issues more than any other journalist. On Farm To Table Talk he critiques the NY Times story and paints a picture of what we can learn from this very long GMO journey. Nate also shares his story from a small newspaper in Idaho, to a graduate student of Michael Pollan’s at Berkeley to the Food and Farming editor for Grist, www.grist.org
