GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOODS
EXPLAINED IN PLAIN LANGUAGE

Author of Hooked on Raw

Genetically Engineered Foods Explained in Plain Language

 
In this lecture, 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.  At least 70% of all GE foods are grown in the US, with Canada and Argentina making up most of the balance. The food fight of the century began in the US and what happens here will be pivotal to defeating this technology worldwide.
 
After learning about the threat to the integrity of Mother Nature and human and animal health posed by the genetic engineering of seeds/plants, Rhio attended numerous lectures to learn about the subject.  As a layperson, she found it difficult to decipher the scientific language used by the geneticists, but she stayed the course until she had an understanding.
 
Rhio found the arrogance and greed that comprises most of the biotechnology industry and the information about what they are doing to be so shocking and abhorrent that she decided to break it down into plain language so that anyone could understand it and she has been sharing the information ever since.
 
The evening will begin with some original songs sung by Rhio and her partner, Leigh.
