GMO Foods: What are we eating?
October 21, 2013, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
Elliott Bay Brewhouse & Pub, 255 SW 152nd St .
GMO stands for “genetically modified organisms,” and foods that contain ingredients with GMOs are considered GMO foods.
Genetically modified food has quietly become second nature in the U.S. , and it may surprise you just how many foods you are eating that you never knew contained a genetically modified ingredient.
Experts say 60% to 70% of processed foods on U.S. grocery shelves have genetically modified ingredients. If this shocks you, a new USDA-funded survey shows you’re not alone. Attend this presentation to learn more and to ask questions about genetically modified foods.
Trudy Bialic, Director of Public Affairs/Editor for PCC Natural Markets, will be our featured speaker. Trudy has spoken extensively on GMO Foods and PCC is known for their diligence in selecting non-GMO foods to selling in their stores.
This presentation is being sponsored by Sustainable Burien.
