The current issue of Vogue magazine (May 2012) features an excellent article on GMOs. A well-researched piece by Eve Conant, “Lab to Table” covers the latest research on the technology as well as the burgeoning resistance movement. The article concludes with great info about the solutions offered by the Non-GMO Project, and ends with this quote from Non-GMO Project Executive Director Megan Westgate:
I asked Westgate if she felt certain GMOs were dangerous. “What evidence do we have that they are safe? This is an experimental technology, and if people don’t want to experiment on themselves or their children, they need to have a choice. And that’s what we’re providing.”
We’re thrilled to see the GMO issue covered honestly and thoughtfully in such an esteemed mainstream publication–it’s a big step forward in the effort to educate Americans about what’s happening to our food. To read the full article, pick up a copy of the May issue (pictured at right), and flip to page 286.
