In lieu of the recent events in the state of CT, regarding HB 5117 which would have required the labeling of foods containing GMO's was downgraded ( removing a key provision requiring the labeling of all foods containing GMO's) it is clear that the battle for consumers to rightfully know whether or not food contains genetically modified ingredients is going to be intense. 
 
With biotech stocks remaining strong combined with all of the elaborate advertising promoting GMO’s as “being able to feed the rapidly growing overpopulated world” the question still remains, why won’t the biotech industry label something they are so proud of? 
 
If farmers can look forward to a lucrative and sustainable future, why are there so many law suits popping up against the biotech giants filed by farmers who won’t fall in line? Has biotech monopolized agriculture in such a way that farmers have no choice but to succumb to the rules set by these corporations with deep pockets prohibiting the possibilities for a future in organic farming? 
 
Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, as host, June Stoyer is joined by Jeffrey Smith to discuss this battle!  Smith, who has been praised as, “the best science communicator alive today” is the leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices. His first nonfiction book, Seeds of Deception, quickly became the world’s bestselling and #1 rated book on the subject. His second book, Genetic Roulette, demystifies the 65 health risks of GM foods with simple tables and sidebars. Jeffrey is the Executive Director of the Institute for Responsible Technology, a world leader in GMO education, and publisher of the Non-GMO Shopping Guide. Stay Tuned!
