Are you raising your kids on biotech food? Is their fast food nano-tech?

Learn about genetically modified foods (GMOs) – not disclosed on food product labels. Are we filling our shopping carts with genetically modified food? We will learn what it is and its effects upon the human genome, people, animals, and the ecosystem. Learn how to identify GMO food and the crucial differences between conventional, organic, and GMO food. There are profound connections between today’s GMO “food” and DNA changes, allergies, chronic health conditions and disease. How is the new generation of food symbolized in some TV commercials? Gary will also address artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, the trans fat replacement, and “functional” foods. Come away with knowledge you can put to use instantly.
