Thirty years ago, the legendary Walter Cronkite and world-renowned experts at the American Council on Science and Health took on the overblown fears of the day in Big Fears, Little Risks. In the wake of a pandemic that’s claimed millions of lives, the documentary has been relaunched as a series tackling the fear-mongering surrounding GMOs, pesticides, vaccines and nuclear power.
Matty Cardarople (Stranger Things) hosts some of the world’s leading scientists as they give viewers a crash course on these wrongly vilified technologies. The film features well-known figures including Dr. Bruce Ames and Dr. Paul Offit, alongside respected experts and GLP advisors Dr. Nina Fedoroff and Dr. Geoffrey Kabat. The take-home message: technological innovation offers us the best chance of ending a global health crisis, feeding the world and reversing climate change.
