  • Why Is Genome Editing And GMOs Bad For Business?

    with Stephanie Steele

    Key targets of the Sustainable Development Goal #2 Zero Hunger are to end hunger, promote sustainable agriculture, achieve food security and improve nutrition. In all ways, GM - or genetically modified - crops affects the land we grow our crops on, and the livelihoods of the farmers who grow them, to the nutrition in the food we eat, and the impact on our bodies and other wildlife. The impact of genetic modification, or new technology gene editing, goes way beyond just the food we see in front of us, but an entire system that is governed as a monopoly by chemical companies, and the man-made effects on water, soil, air and animals.

    In this lesson we dive in to what GM is, and to give you guidance on how you can use the knowledge within your practice.
