Vandana Shiva, Ph.D. – Food Security In A Global Community
Dr. Vandana Shiva is founder of Navdanya (“nine seeds”), a movement of thousands of Indian farmers promoting biodiversity and use of native seeds. Vandana is a recipient of the Right Livelihood Award, often called “The Alternative Nobel Prize”, and the director of the Research Foundation on Science, Technology, and Ecology.
She is author of many bestselling books, including Stolen Harvest: The Hijacking of the Global Food Supply. Forbes named Vandana “one of the 7 most influential feminists in the world,” and Time selected her as an “environmental hero.” Vandana will inform you of the real global impact of GMOs and inspire you to consider the deeper implications of seed patenting and ownership.
I just listened to Dr. Shiva and she says that the chemicals & poisons used in the GMOs, like Golden Rice, are causing disease and cancers.
Biodiversity is important and you will benefit by growing “native seeds” in your own garden. You do not need a huge amount of land, you can grow in containers, pots, whiskey barrels or learn to grow “up”.
Inflammed brains, inflammed guts are symptoms of GMO foods, doctors are learning & many are recommending we avoid GMO foods. Diagnosis of ADHD, autism and several other current diseases are being traced to GMO use and other poisons that are being used by Monsanto. Organic vegetables, your own backyard garden or local Farmers Markets is the way to your better health.
John & Ocean Robbins are a great inspiration to those of us who are fighting for safe foods for our kids’ future. Take a look, our government is not protecting us. They are sleeping with the enemy.
