In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Julie Kelly, one of the leading, non-scientist, voices in the contentious debate over America’s food system, joins the show to talk about Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs).
Through her research to improve the cooking classes she was teaching, she became a staunch defender of American agriculture and biotechnology to improve the world’s food supply. According to Julie, GMOs are perfectly safe to consume – a stance that is supported by numerous scientific organizations. She also talks about the myths surrounding “organic” food, explaining there is no evidence to suggest organic food is more nutritious, good for you, are better for the environment.
The Heartland Institute hosted an event with Julie Kelly on June 29 at the Andrew Breitbart Freedom Center. Watch it below:
