Harvest of Fear a Nova Frontline Special Report

GM Genetically Modified Foods

A gene from a jellyfish is placed in a potato plant, making it light up whenever it needs watering. Rice plants are genetically transformed to produce vitamin A, preventing millions of African children from going blind. Crops are engineered so that they can grow in aluminum contaminated soil. Plants are modified to produce plastic or pharmaceuticals.
