Professor Emeritus Don Huber, Purdue University On Why GMOs Are Unsafe – Audio

This week on the Food Nation Radio Network we spoke with Professor Don Huber who has identified an unknown entity in genetically modified corn. Concurrent with that discovery and research, he has found several very serious health effects from consuming GMO plants.

There are currently bills in front of the House and Senate in the Florida Legislature to label these foods, giving consumers the right to know what they are eating. GMOs include soy, corn and sugar beets, although there are several others on the market.

Some citrus farmers in the State of Florida are in support of a new genetically modified orange to combat “greening”, a blight on the citrus crops, instead of using more organic methods. This new orange produces its own insecticide inside the fruit to kill pests.

Here’s our shocking interview with Dr. Huber: 

Dr. Huber is Professor Emeritus of Plant Pathology at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN. He received B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Idaho (1957, 1959), a Ph-D from Michigan State University (1963), and is a graduate of the US Army Command & General Staff College and Industrial College of the Armed Forces. He was a Pathologist at the University of Idaho for 8 years before joining the Department of Botany & Plant Pathology at Purdue University in 1971. He does advisory work for the USDA.
