Nutrition & The Environment: GMO Foods:
Problems and Solutions
With Breanne Gibson MSc., DHN (Hon.), ROHP
Since the first introduction in the mid-1990s, the presence of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in the food supply has grown significantly. Almost 98% of Canadian grown Canola is genetically engineered for herbicide resistance and the majority of processed foods on the market shelves contain GMO ingredients. Marketed to help ‘save the world’ by growing food that is able to support the ever-increasing global population as well as crops that can survive climate change (climate-ready crops), GMOs are impacting not only our health, but the way in which we grow and eat food. GMOs are banned in Europe and other countries; however, Canada does not even require labeling of GMO ingredients making it difficult to know the real contents of food today. Join this seminar to learn the truth about GMOs: what they are, what foods they are most prevalent in, the human and environmental health risks, as well as the socio-economic impacts. We will also discuss the way forward for our food system in such changing and crucial times. Empower yourself by learning how to help protect your health from GMOs as well as your family’s and the environment.
