Talking Biotech returns with an interview with University of Tennessee’s Dr. Neal Stewart, who is also a member of the National Academy of Science’s committee responsible for the recent report that concluded GMOs to be safe. The Genetically Engineered Crops report was commissioned by the National Academies of Science, and a committee was convened to review the current literature. The committee also considered testimony of experts, including self-described experts. A wide range of opinions were considered.

This week’s podcast summarizes the findings of the committee, along with specific questions to Dr. Neal Stewart, a member of the NAS committee.


The podcast concludes with Dr. Stewart’s song on genetic engineering. You can read more about his philosophy of how science and music mesh here.

The NAS Panel member presentation was edited, mostly to remove crowd noise or references to slides you can’t see in an audio podcast.
