New World Notes - GMOs (3): Health Dangers
This week on New World Notes: radio program #262, March 12, 2013, from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m., host Kenneth Dowst will play more from the video documentary, GMO: Ticking Time Bomb. We'll focus on environmental damage and health risks--both of the genetically modified crops themselves and of the potent herbicides that are used to grow them.
Most GMOs are genetically modified in order to survive exposure to toxic herbicides such as Monsanto's "Roundup"--not to increase yield, improve drought resistance, resist blight, or for any other arguably-good reason.
This installment includes a prologue by KD and a brief news story about a new GMO labeling bill just introduced in Connecticut.
