Consumer advocate Jeffrey Smith and biotechnology entrepreneur Gregory Stock debated the safety of genetically modified food (GMOs). Each gave an illustrated presentation, and then they offered rebuttals. Mr Smith in his argument talked about the health risks of GMOs and said government and industry had covered up the risks with “rigged research.” Mr. Stock disputed everything Mr. Smith said and said he lacked a scientific background. Following their debate, they responded to audience members' questions. Topics included the ethics of GMOs, the role of the government, GMO labeling, and the potential to solve world hunger.
“The Truth About GMOs” was a presentation of the Vail Symposium at the Timber Hearth Grill in The Club at Cordillera. close
