"Altered Genes, Twisted Truth" On Wednesday's Access Utah


Access Utah is presenting a periodic series of conversations on the hotly-debated topic of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs.) Our last such program, a few months ago, presented the case for GMOs. Wednesday on AU, public interest attorney Steven Druker will present a vigorous case against GMOs. Mr. Druker initiated a lawsuit that, according to him, forced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods.

 This, according to Druker, exposed how the agency had covered up the warnings of its own scientists about the risks, lied about the facts, and then ushered these foods onto the market in violation of federal law.
Steven Druker, author of the new book "Altered Genes, Twisted Truth", has served on food safety panels at conferences held by the National Research Council and the FDA, and presented lectures at numerous universities. He appeared recently in Salt Lake City with primatologist Jane Goodall, who wrote the foreword to his book.
