Programming Note: Our upcoming broadcast, "Insidious Exports - GMO Invasion" will air next Tuesday, April 15, 2014, at 7pm PST. Many nations in the world have become prey to the agribusiness industry as it engulfs more and more crop-lands around the globe. Developing countries in Africa, South America, and Asia, are ripe for the picking, but how far will the push for profit and power go when it comes to the natural development of these vulnerable lands? As the corporate players of biotech and chemical agribusiness work to secure even bigger markets for themselves, what will be the ultimate impact to developing countries, and ultimately, to the rest of us.Tune in then!
Tonight on Mad Science: The Genetic Crossroad. One of Anna's most important shows. What none of us want to know about, but every one of us should. What are you eating?
From Double Helix to Double Standard. From the time our society saw the industrialization of our food supply, corporations have continued to push the limits of minimizing costs to maximize profits. Although the practices and policies of the biotech industry and its GMO make up a large part of this, in recent years there has been an ever growing list of dangerous chemical additives being incorporated into our food supply. These same dangerous chemicals are outlawed with strict fines and consequences for their use in most all other countries. Why are US consumers exposed to these toxic substances and why are we not being told? How can such a double standard exist in the United States when countries worldwide deem these substances far too dangerous for their citizens to consume? Join host Anna Kavanaugh for this important broadcast! Tune in tonight at 7:00pm. www.blogtalkradio.com/annakavanaughgeneticcrossroad or subscribe to the show on iTunes!
