About Myles Power (760 Articles)
Hello Internet! My name is Myles Power and I am a chemist from the North East of England, who loves to make videos trying to counter pseudoscience and debunk quackery in all of its various forms! From the hype around GMOs through to Atrazine turning the freakin’ frogs gay, I’ll try to cut through the nonsense that’s out there!

2 Comments on #080 – Why Don’t People Trust GMOs

  1. I posted this over at YouTube as well, but in case some folks don’t find their way over there I wanted to bring it along here too.


    This was fun. And I love the astonished-looking bovine here–so it should be. We talk about #GMO vaccines for animals, Bill Nye’s evolved stance on GMOs, and more.

    I’m sure there are other links, let me know if there’s something I discussed that could use the reference.


  2. Personally I blame Jeremy Rifkin and his book ‘Algeny’ for starting the whole thing off.
