On Your Call we’ll have a conversation with Wenonah Hauter, author of Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America. She writes about the history of our food system, the rise of Monsanto and GMOs. What is the historical perspective of our food supply? What are your concerns about food safety and the food industry at large? It’s Your Call, with me, Rose Aguilar, and you.
Today, many of the foods we eat come from Genetically Modified Organisms such as modified corn, wheat, and soy to make them grow more productively. But do consumers have the right to know if the food they are buying at the grocery store contains GMOs? This November, voters are being asked to decide if GMOs and foods that contain GMOs should be labeled as such in retail outlets. We take up the pros and cons of Proposition 37.
