Get to know Ken Roseboro of The Organic & Non-GMO Report. 

What are you going to speak about at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR? 

Ken RoseboroI am going to speak about the genetically modified food threat and what people can do about it.

What are you most looking forward to sharing with FAIR attendees? 

Helping to educate them about healthy, non-GMO and organic foods and practical steps they can take to avoid GM foods. Many Americans remain unaware of the GM food issue so I want to help spread the word so that more people become educated and motivated to demand non-GMO foods.

Tell us about your background with your particular topic.

Ken-- would mind documenting for us even one flimsy shred of evidence that "GMO" food is unhealthy in any way for humans? By GMO I suppose you mean organisms modified by selecting genes from one species and inserting them into the genome of another species. After all, all domesticated plants and animals are really GMO: genes artificially selected by humans via traditional breeding methods. Now we can do it "in the test tube," but it's really not any different in principle. I guess you think we should all be hunter/gatherers again, right?
