Caitlin Shetterly: The Threat of GMOs

Caitlin Shetterly, Author, Modified: GMOs and the Threat to Our Food, Our Land, Our Future
Cathy Curtis, Chair, Food Matters Forum—Moderator

GMO products are among the most-consumed and the least-understood substances in the United States today. They appear not only in the food we eat, but in everything from the interior coating of paper coffee cups and medicines to diapers and toothpaste.

Shetterly discovered the importance of GMOs the hard way. Shortly after she learned that her son had an alarming sensitivity to GMO corn, she was told that she had the same condition, and her family’s daily existence changed forever.

She takes a deeper look at how GMO products are currently infiltrating our food, our land, and how that affects our health and future.
