Food Mythbusters: Do We Really Need Industrial Agriculture?

19 Dec, 2012

Food myth bustersAnna Lappé and her Food Mythbusters have released their first video to challenge the pervasive propaganda from the biggest players in the food industry.

Pesticide pushers, fertilizer makers, food processors and manufacturers spend billions of dollars every year selling the idea that we need their products to feed the world.

But, do we really need industrial agriculture to feed the world? Can sustainably grown food deliver the quantity and quality we need—today and in the future? The first Food MythBusters film takes on these questions in under seven minutes. So next time you hear them, you can respond properly.
