HEARTLAND STORIES:

EXPLAINING GMOS, GLYPHOSATE AND SOIL BIOLOGY. 

 

Theresa Marquez speaks with Dr. Robert Kremer. Dr. Kremer is a Professor of Soil Microbiology at the University of Missouri and is recently retired after a 32-year career as a microbiologist with the U.S.D.A. He speaks about the problems he has studied over the past 18 years with GMOs and glyphosate. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp, is the most widely used herbicide in the world. Eighty percent of all GMO crops are engineered to tolerate Glyphosate.

A pioneer of the natural foods movement, host Theresa Marquez has dedicated her 40-year career to protecting family farmers and facing our health crisis through a culture of healthy food. Recently retired as Mission Executive for Organic Valley, Theresa created Heartland Stories Radio to reflect on the state of our world and its ensuing impact on public health, urging people to work together and take control of their impact on the planet.
