Jeffrey's Best (and Most Outrageous) Stories from 25 years of Non-GMO Activism (Part 3) - Episode 157

Mar 24, 2023

In this episode, Jeffrey tells a couple stories surrounding the myth that "GMO's are needed because they will feed the world"--a common talking point from the biotech industry that has been shown, through scientific studies, not to be true.

In his first story, he talks about how he sat across the table from a Monsanto molecular biologist at a Lindy Hop workshop in St. Louis (Jeffrey loves to dance). Jeffrey asks a series of pointed questions that end in no response from the biologist.

In his next story, Jeffrey discusses how Monsanto convinced cotton farmers in India to buy their very expensive GMO cotton seeds.  After one season, not only did the cotton seeds not produce but they caused a series of health problems and financial collapses that ended in the suicides of 250,000 farmers.
