"This conference will bring together many of the world’s leading experts on food, including The Prince of Wales, a lifelong environmentalist and organic farmer, Eric Schlosser, author of “Fast Food Nation,” and Wendell Berry, winner of The National Humanities Medal. How is American and international food production changing to respond to growing demand from consumers for healthier and more natural food? Experts from some of world’s biggest food companies, academia and nonprofits discuss trends in agriculture and consumer behavior that is shaping the future of food."
Note from Nikki Rose -- I was at the premier of this film in San Francisco in 2004. People risked their careers to get this information out to the public. Things have changed but not fast enough. So many people still do not even know what GMOs are. But they are eating it...so we are what we eat.
