There are lots of great videos you can watch online and share with your friends. We’ve collected a few here that we feel do a good job conveying the facts and explaining the reasons why people want to know if they’re buying GMOs.
Of course, this is a complicated issue, and anyone interested in this topic should consider these videos a starting point for more research. There is a lot of misinformation out there (both ways), so you can’t trust everything on youtube 😉

Feeding The World Without GMOs [2:10]
This animated infographic from Gringo Starr Productions dispels to popular myth that Genetically Engineered crops are necessary to feed the rapidly growing world population.

This piece was inspired by the good work done at Environmental Working Group and Green America. More information on these studies and sources can be found at:
Anna Lappé & Food MythBusters — Do we really need industrial agriculture to feed the world? [6:30]
How can we feed the world—today and tomorrow?
The biggest players in the food industry—from pesticide pushers to fertilizer makers to food processors and manufacturers—spend billions of dollars every year not selling food, but selling the idea that we need their products to feed the world. But, do we really need industrial agriculture to feed the world? Can sustainably grown food deliver the quantity and quality we need—today and in the future? Our first Food MythBusters film takes on these questions in under seven minutes. So next time you hear them, you can too.
The Undercurrent: why are we being fed by a poison expert? Monsanto and Roundup [5:14]
The Undercurrent delves into the world of mass agriculture to ask how one company has such control over food supply. The name Monsanto was once synonymous with Agent Orange, but today it’s the dominance of the widespread herbicide Roundup which helps keep the company on top. But is the World Health Organisation’s claim that Roundup ‘probably’ causes cancer, cause for concern? And what about the company’s stance on patenting which sees farmers in developing countries unable to hold on to seed? Guardian Australia has joined forces with The Undercurrent – an online news show billing itself as an antidote to the five-second soundbite – for a four-part series over June and July. Brisbane creators Jen Dainer and Dan Graetz say it is the show they wish existed – so they created it themselves
