Breaking the Frame 5: Food, GM and Synthetic Biology

It’s hard to be indifferent to the politics of food, and that may be why the anti-GM food campaign was so successful.  But despite environmental concerns and accumulating evidence of health risks, the GM corporations continue to push this technology.  Their aim is to intensify industrial agriculture and their control over the entire food chain.  Now with ‘synthetic biology’, an extreme form of genetic engineering, scientists aim to industrialise life itself.  Come and discuss the way forward on these issues.
