You may be watching this and wondering if we lost our minds sharing this kind of information.
Here’s the thing… If you’ve followed us for any amount of time you know we keep an open mind even when our beliefs are challenged. After listening to this podcast, we actually learned a lot from a VERY knowledgeable scientist who clearly has no agenda other than to help humanity.
What we think about GMO foods has changed significantly after Kevin Folta’s interview.
Why should you listen to Kevin? He is a land-grant scientist exploring ways to make better food with less input, also learning and teaching how to effectively communicate science to the public. He is also a professor in and chairman of the Horticultural Sciences Department at the University of Florida, Gainesville.
Do we now feel Monsanto is a company out to do good, not really… They pulled some shady shit and have gotten caught. Do we believe there is danger in genetic modification and GMO foods as we see today, you bet!
