Tucson Sustainable Food Community to Address the Unsustainability of GMOs in October Campaign

by Melissa Diane Smith

Growing and eating genetically modified foods simply isn’t sustainable for us or for life on this planet. I’m happy to report that many sustainably oriented businesses and organizations in Tucson have reached the same conclusion and have joined with me and the GMO Free Project of Tucson for a joint public education effort in Tucson during October.

Protecting our health and the planet’s health, and overcoming both the increase in numerous chronic illnesses since the mid-1990s and how corporations are controlling more and more of our seed and food these days, are key topics that will be addressed in a coordinated campaign of GMO education events by the GMO Free Project of Tucson, Native Seeds/SEARCH, Baja Arizona Sustainable Agriculture, the Envision Tucson Sustainable Festival, and Tucson Food Day, during the month of October, which is Non-GMO Month. Local Tucson businesses including Wellness First, New Life Health Centers, The Tasteful Kitchen, and Native Seeds/SEARCH are sponsors. As Director of Education and Speaker for the GMO Free Project of Tucson, I will be involved in and speaking at each of the following events.

Exclusive Interview with 'Dr. Gluten' on Gluten's Widespread Harm to Health

Dr Rodney Ford

Three years ago when Dr. Rodney Ford, who has 35 years of experience working with children with food allergy and intolerances and is known as “Dr. Gluten,” came to Tucson and visited with me, I knew we were on the same page and spoke the same language.

I had the opportunity to speak to Dr. Ford again just recently about his new book Gluten: ZERO Global that warns that gluten causes universal harm, and again, I had the same feeling. It’s so great to talk with not only a good friend, but a like-minded practitioner who cares more about helping his patients than maintaining the status quo in medicine. Dr. Ford also is an insightful researcher and has pulled together an incredible amount of research that led him to his breakthrough conclusion that gluten is bad for us all.
