You know the saying, you are what you eat? Well what if you don’t know what’s in the food you’re eating?
Genetically modified food (GMO’s) is a hot topic of debate. What is genetically modified food? Is it good or harmful?
In Washington State come November, voters will decide the fate of Initiative 522, which would to require special labeling of genetically modified foods. Federal law does not require genetically engineered food labeling.
To discuss GMO’s versus non-GMO’s and i-522, Sonya Green speaks with three guests:
- Director of Public Affairs at Puget Consumer Coop, Trudy Bialic
- Board member from Washington State Physicians for Social Responsibility (and a registered nurse), Karen Bowman
- Eastern Washington conventional wheat grower, Tom Stahl from Waterville, Washington
