GMO Labeling

Genetically modified organisms (GMO's) are now prevalent in our food products, with an estimated 70% of goods on grocery store shelves containing at least some GMO inputs.  Often, this is in the form of modified grains, such as corn.  Proponents of GMO's extol their potential health and environmental benefits, while detractors criticize their potential health and environmental benefits.  Can both be right?  Today's New Capital Show convenes a round table of Dr.Tom McKnight, Professor of Biology at Texas A&M, Dr. Tom DeGregory, Professor of Economics at University of Houston, and Craig Winter, President of the Campaign to Label GMO Foods.  Like nuclear power, GMO foods seem to occupy that difficult space where reasonable people find it hard to draw certain conclusions.  [Production: Michael Mendenhall(lead)/Teb Lokey]
