Genetically modified organisms (or GMOs) aren't the only unregulated way to modify the genetics of crops. As GMOs get more bad press and lobbying movements against them, chemical companies are increasingly turning to mutagenesis, a process that changes the genetic information of an organism in a stable way, resulting in a genetic mutation. RT's Ameera David talks to James Shapiro, a professor of microbiology at the University of Chicago, to find out if consumers should be worried about the effects of mutagenesis in the food supply.
