Last week at SXSW, we sat down with a moderator from +reddit AMA and a farmer, a scientist and a nutritionist to take questions during a one-hour AMA live from the #SXSW trade show floor. Watch the recording of the live stream here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga_06qT0zTk) and follow along with the conversation at https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/2z8y64/were_a_farmer_a_scientist_a_nutritionist_and_a/

"The headlines might paint a dramatic picture, but the reality is that GMOs — and the discussion around them — are more nuanced than many of us assume. And that starts with the term “genetically modified organism" itself."

In this article, PRI Public Radio International looks at the GMO debate, and the role the term GMO itself plays in advancing the discussion: http://www.pri.org/stories/2014-11-03/why-term-gmo-scientifically-meaningless
Genetically modified crops are a big part of both our food supply and our debates about health and safety. But some scientists and observers argue those debates are getting the science of GMOs wrong, and grouping together crops that don't belong in the same argument.

DYK: One 500 lb bale of cotton can produce 215 pairs of jeans, 250 single bed sheets, 1,200 t-shirts, 3,000 diapers, 4,300 pairs of socks, or 680,000 cotton balls? But cotton has uses far beyond fabric - learn all about them (and more!) in the 3rd post of our February Commodity Crop series: http://gmoanswers.com/studies/commodity-crops-cotton
