This week on Hawaii Public Radio, we’re presenting a series we’re calling “Genetically Engineered: Beyond Emotion.”

“GMO” stands for Genetically Modified Organism. Twenty years ago, these did not exist in the commercial market. But what exactly does that term mean---and how common is their use in today’s world? HPR’s Bill Dorman has some answers.

  HPR’s news team takes a week-long look at some of the issues involved in the debate about genetically engineered crops in Hawaii. We’ll tell you why the use of pesticides is an important part of understanding the broader story, and we’ll hear from residents of one community about how they feel about their experience of years of living with a GMO seed facility in their midst. And we’ll show you why labeling food as “non GMO” is an idea that’s gathering popularity on various sides of the debate. Listen for the stories on Morning Edition and All Things Considered the week of March 17th.
