Caveat Comedentis: Eater Beware — New Engineered Foods

The food industry is engineering food to “improve every aspect of the food-value chain.” We will take an in-depth look at two techniques: nanofoods – altering the DNA of food with nanoparticles, and CRISPR/Cas9 – selective gene editing. Benefits, unintended consequences, and social, environmental, and economic impacts will be scrutinized.
