Genetic modification, a hot topic at food dialogues: Part one

The following is an excerpt.

Amid the enormous Chicago-based BIO convention, USFRA gathers stakeholders to talk about GM crops and media coverage.
 

As an estimated 20,000 people descended upon Chicago for the annual BIO convention, assembling to discuss all facets of biotechnology and industry, the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance held another of their ongoing panel discussions, known as the Food Dialogues.

Called “The Straight Story on Biotech in Agriculture,” the goal of this panel was to talk about how media covers agricultural biotechnology. Moderated by CNBC senior analyst Ron Insana, the panel also included Dr. Bob Goldberg, UCLA plant molecular biologist; Emily Anthes, science journalist and author; Jerry Slocum, Mississippi soybean farmer; Melinda Hemmelgarn, registered dietician and radio host; Mike Olson, radio host; Pam Johnson, Iowa corn farmer; Steve Smith, head of RoldGold tomatoes and chair of saveourcrops.org.
