Hot Topics: What's in Your Food?

As you prepare for Thanksgiving dinner, think carefully: How well do you know your turkey? Where is he/she from? Is your pumpkin suspiciously large? How about the corn pudding—is it laced with pesticides?

Hot Topics will discuss Food Safety: GMO’s (genetically modified organisms): How prevalent are they? Should foods with GMOs be labeled? Is buying organic a real solution? How about “natural” beef and lamb? Hormones and antibiotics: helpful or dangerous? And, pesticides: are billions of pounds of pesticides used in corn and soybean production really necessary or is there another way?

When: Wednesday November 14,[masked] pm
Where: Forza Coffee Shop on north Pearl at 21st Street

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
