Hot Topics: What's In Your Food?

  • Jul 24, 2013 · 4:00 PM


Tacoma Branch AAUW Hot Topics will convene for one summer session July 24 to learn about and discuss the growing debate over What’s in Your Food?

Which is the right question?

(1) Does everyone deserve to make an informed choice about whether or not to consume GMO’s (genetically modified organisms)


(2) Does everyone deserve to have access to enough food that is certified to be healthful and safe?

If the campaign for Proposition #522 reaches the ballot in November, Washington state voters will answer question 1.  But perhaps that’s not the right question.  Without genetic modifications there would be no navel oranges (remember Luther Burbank), pluots, or broccoli.   Is the campaign against GMO ignoring the importance of bio-research to ensuring an adequate food supply?
