"Are genetically modified foods vital to ending world hunger and reducing pollution or will "Frankenfoods" ruin health and provoke environmental disaster? NOVA and Frontline investigate the perils and potential of genetic modification. Biotech scientists can already manipulate code, but critics fear toxic or allergenic effects-or genes from engineered plants overwhelming older species and creating strains of "superweeds" and "superbugs."
