Big Food Aims at the Socially Conscious, but Is the Food Healthier? Chipotle, the national food chain that claims to be a healthier fast food alternative, upped the ante recently in trying to follow its motto of "Food with Integrity." Last week the company announced its food menu was going to be GMO-free , no longer containing ingredients derived from genetically engineered plants. It's not the only major national brand to make a bold change. Tyson Foods also announced recently it will stop using poultry treated with human antibiotics . Anti-GMO activists applaud the move, but a majority of scientists -- armed with decades of research -- say GMO's are safe to humans and the food chain. Do all of these changes add up to healthier food or a more sustainable environment and sustainable economy, or will marketing trump science? We look at the future of GMO's from the salsa bar to farms in the developing world.
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border?
