Video: Genetically engineered crops in wake of Proposition 37

The following is an edited summary of a half-hour video. Find a link to the full summary and video below.

In a recently posted half-hour special,  California public television station KQED Quest explores genetically engineered crops in the wake of Proposition 37, the 2012 ballot initiative that would have required foods containing genetically engineered ingredients to be labeled in California. Prop 37 lost, but some 6 million Californians voted in favor of labeling, signaling that many aren’t completely comfortable with genetically engineered food.

Are the benefits of genetically engineered foods worth the risks? Next Meal: Engineering Food explores how genetically engineered crops are made, their pros and cons, and what the future holds for research and regulations such as labeling.
