Some of you may have heard of GMO's or Genetically Modified Organisms, but we wouldn't be too surprised if many of you haven't, even though you're probably eating them everyday. GMO's are made by forcing genes from one species into the DNA of an unrelated food crop or animal in order to introduce a new trait. If you eat processed foods and don't buy organic, chances are you're consuming GMO's.
And it's no wonder that many big BioTech companies like Monsanto would rather keep us in the dark although they claim it's perfectly safe. Why else would they spend millions to defeat GMO labeling in California and Oregon? And did you know that GMO's are banned in Europe? Kind of makes you wonder, right? Don't you think you should have the right to know what's in your food or if it's food at all?
On today's podcast we sit down with Trish Sheldon, a passionate activist, musician, mother, founder of GMO Free Florida and co-founder of Millions Against Monsanto-Florida Chapter. She's fighting hard everyday to get our food supply labeled so we know what we're feeding ourselves and our families.
