Content of the Presentation
Regulatory Failure: It is useful to explain how such dangerous products could have made it to the market with government approval. Several slides include quotes from formerly secret FDA documents that show how government policy was at odds with more cautious scientific opinion at the agency.
Health Risks of GMOs: This section highlights many of the adverse findings revealed through laboratory experiments and reported by farmers, doctors, and investigators. It also introduces some theoretical risks based on the current state of the science.
The Consumer Tipping Point: The final section includes a discussion of a strategy to achieve the tipping point of consumer rejection of GMOs in the US, which is the basis for our Campaign for Healthier Eating in America. The key elements needed are consumer education on GMO health risks combined with clear non-GMO choices.
