Genetically Engineered Foods Explained in Plain Language
What you can do to protect yourself, your family and the environment
In Rhio's talk, you will learn the who, what, why, where and how of GE issues. You will also learn what other countries have done to protect their citizens and the environment, and what we can do here to get the same protections and rights. Ninety percent of processed foods in the US contain GMOs. At least 70% of all GE foods are grown in the US, with Canada and Argentina making up most of the balance at this time. The food fight of the century began in the US and what happens here will be pivotal to defeating this technology worldwide.
In 2009, the results of some long-term feeding studies commissioned by the Austrian Government confirmed that genetically modified corn seriously affects reproductive health in mice. Advocates fighting against the proliferation of GMOs into the open environment have long warned about the infertility link along with other health risks.
Recently, another long term study, this one in France proved that GMOs caused numerous tumors in mice.
Learn what you can do to protect yourself, your family and the environment.
NOTE: GE and GMO mean the same thing and are used interchangeably
