One of the social media topics I am interested in is agriculture – or more specifically, the lopsided way in which agriculture is portrayed in social media. The topic of GMOs is the most active and sensationalized. In January, 2013, Mark Lynas, one of the most successful grass root organizers against GMOs shocked his community of environmentalists and anti-GMO brethern with this talk. His ardent background against GMOs (he uses the term GM) lends credibility to his revised opinion. Please give it a fair reivew. I have often shared this link in comment sections written by people who decry technology and agriculture merging. It might not convince you, but I share to promote thoughtful discussion and debate. Lynas raises some valid arguments.

Lynas’ website offers the video along with his prepared remarks if you wish to follow along.
