If you are like me, you are confused about what to think about Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s)? There is lots of “information” being distributed on the news, on the web, in public conversation about GMO’s that can leave one feeling confused as to what is true and what is hype! Some prominent scientists and policymakers assert with confidence that there is no scientific controversy over the health effects of GMOs—these GM crops are inherently safe and do not have to be tested. The scientific evidence, however, reveals a different story. The talk reveals how politics and corporate interests have distorted an honest look at the health and environmental effects of GMO crops.
If you want to get a better understanding , come find out for yourself so you can make your own decision. Sheldon Krimsky PhD has given this lecture in many venues including the Cambridge Public Library and the New York Public Library. Now he is coming to Wellesley to present the information he has gathered about the GMO corn, soybean and cotton crops that are intimately tied into our food system.
