In October 2014, I interviewed Thierry Vrain, Ph.D. for the Colordado Right to Know GMO Labeling campaign. Dr. Vrain is a former soil biologist and genetic scientist who now speaks out against the risks of genetically engineered foods. Dr. Vrain’s career has spanned the full range of agriculture—from being a proponent of “chemical” agriculture and genetic engineering to being an advocate for organic farming and an opponent of GMOs.
While the video was originally done for the Colorado Right to Know Campaign, it bears even more relevance today since glyphosate has now been labeled as a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization.
The result is a deeper understanding for us of just how pervasive and dangerous glyphosate, the key component of Monsanto’s RoundUp, is to human and animal health. Monsanto’s sales of RoundUp have exploded over the years since the introduction of genetically altered seeds designed designed to withstand the ravages of this dangerous chemical.
Monsanto’s claims that glyphosate itself poses no danger to human health are put into sharp focus by this video.
Grab a cup of coffee, watch, learn and share.
