GM foods: the awful truth
On tonight's show I have as my guest Bob Phelps, executive director of Gene Ethics, an Australian activist organisation working towards "a more equitable and more sustainable GM-free society".
Mission Statement (from www.geneethics.org):
Gene Ethics is a non-profit educational network of citizens and kindred groups. We want the precautionary principle, scientific evidence and the law rigorously applied to all proposed uses of genetic manipulation (GM) technologies and their products.
Gene Ethics generates and distributes accurate information and analysis on the ethical, environmental, social and economic impacts of GM. Our education programs critically assess GM for the public, policy-makers and interest groups.
