On Beyond Organic: GMO Lawsuits & Health Risks

Most Americans remain unaware of genetically engineered food, according to a recent survey from the Pew Initiative on Food and Biotechnology, despite the fact nearly 75 percent of all processed foods -- from soda to soup -- contain genetically engineered ingredients.

South Dakota farmer Pat Trask definitely isn’t in the dark. The living he makes growing alfalfa could be threatened by the planting of GE crops nearby which will likely contaminate his own fields. He could then be sued for millions by the large biotech company who’s patented the contaminating GE seed.

It’s an increasingly common story for American farmers and it’s pushed Trask to a “nausea plateau.” So, he’s suing the government.

Join host Jerry Kay, as we find out about the latest GMO lawsuit and hear about best-selling author Jeffrey Smith’s investigations into the health risks connected to consuming GE food.
