Can a GMO be natural?: Jimmy Botella

Much controversy surrounds the use of genetically modified agriculture, but is it justified? Almost everything we eat is different from its original form, says Jimmy Botella. Bananas were full of seeds, and strawberries emerged from experiments in 18th-century Paris. In this talk at TEDxUQ, Botella dispels some of the myths surrounding GMOs, and asks that, whatever your opinion on GM, the channels of discussion stay open. (Filmed at TEDxUQ)
