February Scholar’s Gild Discussion

Tuesday, February 18, 7:30 PM, Lower Gild Hall

What are GMO crops and why do we have them? 

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) serve a widely range of important research and commercial applications.  GMOs are used in human therapeutics, and to improve agriculture and renewable fuels production. GMO crops are grown and consumed on a large scale in the USA and around the world. GMO crops are also highly regulated and controversial. 

What are GMO crops, how are they made, and how are they different from traditional crops? Are GMO crops dangerous to our health, our environment, or commerce?

Our February Scholars Gild will be lead by Carl Falco. Carl worked as a scientist on GMO crops at Dupont for over 30 years. He will describe how and why crops are genetically modified and lead a discussion on the pros and cons of the technology.

If you would like to read about the topic prior to the Scholars Gild meeting there is a good article in Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetically_modified_organism.

Join the February 18 Scholars Gild discussion, and bring along your question and thoughts to our discussion on GMO foods.
