Kathleen Hallal, one of the founding members of Moms Across America, interviews Dr Don Huber, a whistle blower in the food world. It's in four parts and if you can't take the time to watch all four, at least watch Part 3 and 4.
Dr. Huber is Professor Emeritus of Plant Pathology at Purdue University, a land grant institution, and has been studying plants for 55 years. He has received various awards for his scientific accomplishments and contributions to government. He was Cereal Pathologist at the University of Idaho for 8 years before joining the Department of Botany & Plant Pathology at Purdue University in 1971. His agricultural research the past 50 years has focused on the epidemiology and control of soil borne plant pathogens with emphasis on microbial ecology, cultural and biological controls, and physiology of host parasite relationships. He’s in his 80s, and he is also a father, a grandfather and has had a 41-year military career as a retired Colonel.
Part 1 Time Code List 1:50 Thank you for meeting with me 3:05 Dr. Huber's background 4:45 What are GMOs? 5:49 Is it true that GMOs are created using viruses and bacteria? 8:10 Are any of those viruses or bacteria still active when we eat the food?
Part 3 Time Code List 0:01 Which crops exactly would be sprayed with glyphosate that mothers would have to look out for in the super market? 2:14 I was completely unaware that GMOs were grown in home gardens. I thought it was strictly for industrial agricultural production. Don't they sell BT corn at Walmart? 2:46 Please tell us what you are being told about the health of farm workers exposed to glyphosate. Has the application rate of glyphosate changed since 1996? 4:10 Why did the EPA raise the residue limits? Endocrine disruption (EDCs)? 5:26 Have GMOs been proven safe by the FDA? 7:03 What do scientists say about GMOs in the world community consensus? 8:35 Recap - FDA and safety, FDA scientists studies.
(Note that Dr. Huber said animals won't eat gmo corn but, remember, the meat you are buying in your grocery store is from animals that are forced to eat this gmo corn. I am greatful for Autumn's Harvest Farm, right here in Seneca County for going organic, non gmo.)
