Happy Birthday, OWS!! We have an incredible GMO show to celebrate!
First, an interview with Jeffrey Smith (starts at 9:38), a leading consumer advocate promoting non-GMO food choices and Executive Director of the Institute for Responsible Technology. His first book, Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies About the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You’re Eating, is the world’s bestselling and #1 rated book on GMOs. His second, Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods, documents 65 health risks of the GM foods Americans eat every day.
Next, we will be talking with Adam from Occupy Monsanto (starts at 36:00) about this week’s actions by the Occupy Monsanto Genetic Crimes Unit. Over 75 protests are scheduled for this week to confront industrial agriculture and Frankenfoods. The protests got off to a great start with an action in Oxnard, CA where activists shut down all three entrances to the Monsanto seed distribution plant! We’ll hear about that and all the other actions going on. An interactive map with times, dates and locations of the 75+ other protests can be found at https://occupy-monsanto.com/genetic-crimes-unit/
