Abstract:

What exactly are GMOs? Can they really make us sick? Why is there so much controversy around them? After she was diagnosed with a sensitivity to genetically modified corn -- and discovered that her toddler son was suffering from the same condition -- Caitlin Shetterly set out to ask these questions. The answers, and her hard-fought journey to learn them, are here in this disquieting and meditative window into GMOs and how they are modifying not only our food and our landscape, but our entire ecosystem. Modified delves deep into the heart of the matter, from the corn and soy fields of Nebraska to a beekeeping convention in Belgium to research labs in California, and shines a light on the farmers, scientists, politicians, activists, and corporations all wrestling over a most essential question: Are GMOs safe?
