Being a medical doctor for more than 15 years and having spent many of those researching organic living, I thought I had a firm grasp on the effects of genetically modified foods on our health and the environment.
I recently conducted an interview with Dr Maarten Stapper, who has worked as a scientist for 30 years in 4 continents including Australia as a CSIRO scientist.
We discuss the issues surrounding genetically modified foods and the effects on our health and the environment. I was blown away by the depth of his knowledge and I was alarmed by what he has to say regarding the process involved in the introduction of these genetically modified organisms (GMOs) into our food chain.
Whether we like it or not, this technology will affect each and every one of us. We all need to listen to what he has to say about GMOs in our food and the science behind genetic modification.
