The world's population will reach 9.6 billion in 2050. But do we have enough food for this bulging population? Is genetically modified food the answer to this problem because of its higher yield? Or as claimed by food policy experts that the problem of hunger is due to distribution and not due to a decrease in the yield? Is genetically modified food safe for consumption? If not, then what is the harm in conducting field trials to ascertain the safety of foodgrain? On this week's The Big Fight, we discuss the very contentious issue of GM food and the fact and fiction behind the story.
