Jeffrey Smith Talks About The Future of GMO Labeling With June Stoyer On The Organic View Radio Show
Jeffrey Smith, Executive Director of the Institute for Responsible Technology, discusses the future of GMO labeling on The Organic View Radio Show, with June Stoyer.
In lieu of the recent events in the state of Connecticut regarding HB 5117 which would have required the labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) was downgraded, removing a key provision requiring the labeling of all foods containing GMOs, it is clear that the battle for consumers to rightfully know whether or not food contains genetically modified ingredients is going to be intense. The news spread quickly with angry citizens demanding that their voices be heard and for legislators to take action.
Jeffrey M. 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, which reads like a fantastical whodunit, quickly became the world’s bestselling and number-one rated book on the subject. His second book, Genetic Roulette, demystifies the 65 health risks of GM foods with simple tables and sidebars. Smith has spoken in more than 30 countries and has been quoted in hundreds of media outlets, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Time magazine. Smith is the Executive Director of the Institute for Responsible Technology, a world leader in GMO education, and publisher of the Non-GMO Shopping Guide. Smith lives with his wife in Iowa, surrounded by genetically modified corn and soybeans.
“If the biotech industry is so proud of their technology and will relentlessly pursue anyone, especially organic farmers whose crops have been accidentally contaminated by their products, it would make sense that they would be as eager to label their ingredients on food,” said June Stoyer, Executive Producer of the show.
