Pamm Larry likes being able to look at the label of a food product and find out what’s inside before she buys it – sugars, fats, and all other things organic and artificial, you can find it on the label, right? Wrong. One class of food manufacturers gets to hide its product from public view, and hence from consumer choice: the manufacturers of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Ever seen BT Corn on a food label, or Round-Up Ready Canola? After this November, perhaps you will. Pamm Larry got tired of having California food labels conceal untested food ingredients, so she got busy, formed Label GMOs and launched the GMO Labeling Initiative for the November California ballot. Last month, Label GMO gathered nearly a million signatures, twice as many as were required to make the ballot.
During the second half hour of this 1-hour program, co-host Daniel Kerbein interviews Pamm Larry about the origins and objectives of the Caifornia Right to Know ballot initiative.
In preparation for that interview, Daniel explores the process and the potential dangers posed by genetic modification of our food supply, and the implications of releasing these organisms onto gigantic farm fields and of course into our food supply. - without any testing for potential harm to the environment, or ill effects on humans. To this purpose, he uses excerpts from Mike Adams' Health Ranger reports, and Jeffery Smith's "GMO Threat" video series.
This program first aired on bilingual KBBF-FM 89.1 Calistoga/Santa Rosa. A Spanish-language program about the Label GMOS initiative will be added to the podcast menu soon. Please generously support bilingual public radio.
It's good to talk.
