NYTimes Video: Cultivating Dinner

"Americans ate 475 million pounds of tilapia last year, making this once obscure African native the most popular farmed fish in the United States."

Cynthia Williams's insight:

My concern is how safe is bioengineered food?  How has its nutritional content been altered?  Until some of our questions about bioengineered food can be answered by the FDA and other government officials I remain leery about the potential side effects that might occur from eating it and wonder how nutritious it really is.

How is the concept of agribusiness changing the way we think about food?

Seth Dixon's curator insight, July 25, 2013 9:04 AM

Industrial farming, human-introduced species, GMOs, outsourcing and environmental impacts are but some of the relevant themes from this video.  How are global taste buds reshaping the geographic landscape?

The video discusses how now alot of countries are industrially farm raising their fish. Tilapia is a perfect example Americans ate 475 million pounds of Tilapia last year. Ten years ago you would never even hear about Tilapia because it was not a popular fish. Times have changed how they raise them and then ship them out the video shows one of the farms where they grow the TIlapia.

Geography: What in the World is it?

The Brigham Young University Geography Department explains what geography is all about.  As a graduate of that department, it puts a smile on my face.
