Your Call: When it comes to GM foods, has the FDA failed to protect the public?

Aug 31, 2015

On August 31st edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with public interest attorney Steven Druker about his new book, Altered Genes, Twisted Truth.

 Drker says that if FDA had listened to its own experts’ advice that GMO foods entailed higher risks than their conventional counterparts, the GMOs would have never gained traction. How genetically modified foods pass the safety test? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guest:

Steven Druker,  public interest attorney, executive director of the Alliance for Bio-Integrity, and author of Altered Genes, Twisted Truth – How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public
