In today's episode Jeffrey is asked the question, "What is the future going to look like? How can we avoid the depletion of real food?" Jeffrey discusses some of the real issues that are facing us and that there is hope for us because many things are changing. Organic and non-GMO foods are becoming more popular, and half of those surveyed said they believe that GMO foods are dangerous.
The most important thing we can do right now is to choose organic and non-GMO foods over other foods. That will send a strong message to the food producers that they need to create more organic and non-GMO foods. Another important thing we can do is to get involved and take action by subscribing to our newsletter and action alerts at responsibletechnology.org.
The Institute for Responsible Technology is working to protect you & the World from GMOs (and while we’re at it, Roundup®...) To find out exactly how we do this and to subscribe to our newsletter visit https://www.responsibletechnology.org/

Notes for this week's Podcast
This week's Transcript
Speaker 1: (00:08)
My husband and I created a business with farmers called get my own where we totally promoted advocacy for, um, growing your own food. And granted, um, we've heard recently that, and this may be all, um, controversy about checking for checking the reality of a label saying, you know, not genetically modified, really look into the farmers to see how ethical is. But my question is where is the future? If you know, everyone's concerned about global warming, but, um, our, our biodiversity and our earth and our, our micro gut is being changed by this. So where, and I'm promoting this, but is there, is there hope for the future, if it feels like it's like we're just gonna die off or deplete. So what, what is the future going to look like? How can we avoid, you know, um, this just depletion of real food.
Speaker 2: (01:02)
Okay. So there's two things, there's food. And then there's the microbiome. Um, as far as the microbiome is concerned, it's a serious problem because we have democratized the gene pool, giving people an opportunity to introduce things that can travel around the world and re havoc. But at the timing is unbelievably perfect for us to introduce new legislation. The timing is perfect for us to raise the alarm and , and people are getting it. I mean, your organization is welcome to become an ally. We can put your logo on our site, as we're doing with, we have 40 others right now. We hope to have thousands, cuz people are getting it. And I think that together we will actually lock it down because like I said, it's not hard to convey. And by focusing on implementing lessons from the pandemic, we are meeting a need with real practical solutions. Now, as far as the food supply goes, first of all, thank you for your work in, uh, your GMI. What was that? Get more? What was it?
Speaker 1: (02:14)
It's get my own, grow my own. Gather my own.
Speaker 2: (02:17)
Yeah. Okay. Be beautiful. So what's happening is as people learn more about the dangers of GMOs and Roundup, and there's more information on that all the time. There was just a study put out by my friend, Dr. Michael Antonio in King's college, London who took six common pesticides that are often found together on food and fed them to rats and notice that they were changes that would not have been seen by traditional methods, but want to use the more in depth analysis, molecular bio molecular analysis, he found serious damage that could lead to diseases, showing that all of the regulatory review processes around the world are basically a facade. None of them would have picked up these changes. And so what do you do? You eat organic? So there is as these tech, as technology progresses as the chemicals progress as the GMOs progress, the need to be organic is growing.
Speaker 2: (03:21)
So you mentioned the verification process. The non GMO project is from my vantage point, the best third party verifier for non GMO. They are way up to speed on the new GMOs, the gene editing, et cetera. So if something is non GMO project verified, it has the highest likelihood that even these little new GMOs will be excluded, but I would recommend having organic also because that eliminates all the, the pesticides. So if I had to choose between non GMO project and organic, I go for organic. And ideally both, we've talked about that before. So I actually think that the demand is growing and what's happening is in our system. The most vulnerable are being damaged, the children. And I've been talking to my friend pediatrician, Dr. Michelle Perro, who wrote the book, what's making our children sick. And for, if you look at the book it's GMOs and Roundup primary driver. So knowing that we have the generation of parents, the generation of doctors, the generation of those who are observing, saying, we need to make a change. So the depth of understanding is growing among a subset of the population. And that is securing the organic supply chain for those that need it. And unfortunately, it's not everyone, but half the population now believes that GMOs are unsafe and that's driving the food companies away from GMOs. So it's working. Thank you for that. Excellent question.
