Inside: Genetically Modified Food (GMO)

As an undergraduate at Vanderbilt, I studied molecular biology and absolutely loved it. In the lab we could do amazing things like take enzymes and isolate genes and insert them into other species to impart new traits (and this was back in the early 1980’s). Now we have strong evidence that despite the wide use of GMO products, they are not safe.

The health information is from the book Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risk of Genetically Engineered Foods, by Jeffrey M. Smith and related websites. I have hear Jeffrey Smith speak twice and have all his books. I highly recommend all of his resources. Please see:
