More and more people are gradually learning the hard truths about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and taking action to avoid them, making the non-GMO movement a very fast-growing movement. The Non-GMO Project Verified label now is the fastest-growing label claim in the natural foods arena.
However, there have been so many myths perpetuated about GMOs that even some people who feel strongly about having a sustainable food system have missed some basics about GMOs and why GMOs aren’t good for us or our planet. On Tuesday, October 15, at 7:30 p.m., at St. Mark’s Presbyterian Church, 3809 E. 2nd Street, in Tucson, I will explain the many compelling reasons why growing numbers of people are shopping and eating non-GMO in “Unhealthy and Unsustainable: Why Growing Numbers of People are Saying No to Genetically Modified Foods.” Tips on how you can be a savvy non-GMO consumer will also be included. My presentation will be from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., followed by a Q&A session.
