Will GMOs Kill Us All? – (QED 2016)

For decades now, we have been told by organisations like Greenpeace, GM-Freeze, and Friends of the Earth that genetical modified (GM) food is dangerous and has been shown to be harmful to humans.They have done a great job at convincing the population of their dangers by quoting scientific literature that claims GM-food has been shown, among other things, to cause cancer, leukaemia, and stomach inflammation; but is there really any truth to this? What do the papers these organisations are promoting really say, and do they have any flaws? Or, in actual fact, are GMOs going to kill us all? In my talk I am going to critique several highly referenced anti-GM papers, looking past their veneer of good science, and discovering what they really say about GMOs and the people who promote them.

  1. Greetings from Port Angeles, on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula in the far northwest corner of the United States.
    I’m just trying to stay dry and warm while I contemplate the free healthcare that I can see out my living room window across the Straits of Juan de Fuca.

    Keep up the great work your doing.
    Maybe next time you need to grab a monitor and vga cable to plug into the back of the projector for a stage monitor.

    I love your talks. Keep it up.
    Carl
