Dr Azevedo - Monsanto's Sloppy Practices

Guest: Jaydee Hanson – Health Concerns About GMO Salmon

From the Food Nation Radio Interview Archives: Elizabeth Dougherty spoke with Jaydee Hanson, the Senior Policy Analyst for The Center for Food Safety about the proposal in front of the FDA that would allow genetically modified salmon to be produced and sold in the United States.  As you’ll hear, the public spoke out against the proposal en masse, but barring a major reversal in government policy, look for this salmon to be on the market shortly.  While there is pending legislation that would require specific labeling of this particular salmon, unless it is labeled appropriately, you won’t even know you’re eating it.

Here’s what he had to say:

From The Center for Food Safety’s website:  Jaydee Hanson works as a policy analyst for the Center for Food Safety on issues related to nanotechnology, animal cloning and animal genetic engineering. He also works for the Center’s sister agency, the International Center for Technology Assessment (ICTA) where he directs their work on human genetics, synthetic biology and nanotechnology. He is the US co-chair for the Nanotechnology Taskforce of the Transatlantic Consumers Dialogue and a fellow of the Institute on Biotechnology and the Human Future.
