Video: Neil deGrasse Tyson on GMO scientific consensus in Food Evolution movie

Adding more fuel to the GMO versus organic food fire, the documentary “Food Evolution,” … attempts to end the controversy once and for all with a decidedly pro-GMO argument. Directed by Academy Award-nominated director Scott Hamilton Kennedy and narrated by science celebrity Neil deGrasse Tyson, the film utilizes typical documentary conventions—featuring one-on-one interviews with specifically selected experts, beautiful shots of farmland, and a charismatic host to tie it all together.

[W]hat might be most surprising to some is deGrasse Tyson’s involvement in the documentary, seeing as he’s built such trust among his fan base as an affable and objective interpreter of complex concepts, as you can see him do in the exclusive clip below.

This wouldn’t be the first time deGrasse Tyson defended GMOs. Three years ago, deGrasse Tyson went on a YouTube rant about GMO critics, and the video ultimately received more than 1 million views.
