California Candidate Will Revoke Biz Licenses Of GMO Seed Companies

This week, Food Nation Radio Network talked with David Curtis, candidate for Secretary of State in the State of California. He is running for office with a purpose in mind; getting rid of companies like Monsanto currently conducting business in the State.

Monsanto was against Proposition 37, a proposed initiative in California that would have required labeling of genetically modified foods.

Here’s what he had to say:

Do You Avoid Big Food Organic Companies? – Audio

The topics we covered ranged from the affordability factor to GMO labeling efforts and more.

The graphic below is called Who Owns Organic? and was created by Phil Howard from Michigan State University.

Sugarcane Is Sprayed With Glyphosate (RoundUp) To Ripen It-Audio

We’ve told you about genetically modified sugar beets and encouraged folks to eat sugarcane instead. Now, we are concerned about new information we discovered about a process designed to increase the profitability of sugarcane crops. We want to share this information with you.

Thanks to a listener who sent us a tip, we verified some surprising information in an interview with a researcher at the USDA. Sugarcane in Louisiana, Florida and other parts of the world are sprayed with the herbicide glyphosate (the active ingredient in RoundUp) before harvest to speed up the ripening process and increase its sweetness.

Some studies worldwide suggest there is no safe level of glyphosate. Glyphosate was not developed to be ingested by humans.

U.S. Sugar (the same entity developing genetically modified oranges through Southern Gardens Citrus) did not respond to our attempts to contact them to comment on this story.

Here’s what Caleb Dalley from the USDA Sugarcane Research Unit had to say:

Why Store Brands Cannot Disclose Their Suppliers

This week on Food Nation Radio Network we talked about a site that continues to write stories designed to alarm people about the food supply without using any real investigative techniques, facts or interviews. One non GMO story was particularly irresponsible.

Here’s what we had to say about it:

Why The New York Times Is Wrong About GMO Citrus-Audio

Recently, the New York Times did a story about the Great State of Florida to explain the perspective of one large company who wants our oranges to be genetically modified. In fact, Southern Gardens Citrus thinks it is essential they grow GMO citrus.

Here’s how the story was wrong and a how more complete picture could have been given to NYT readers:
