To Label or Not to Label GE Foods: Proposition 37


Monday, October 29th
Presentation: 5PM
Location: Williman Room, Benson Memorial Center
Cost: FREE!

Join FAI in welcoming Professor David Zilberman. Dr. Zilberman is an expert in the field of genetically engineered foods and a professor at UC Berkeley in the Agricultural and Resource Economics Department.

 

Dr. Zilberman will discuss his view that Proposition 37 is not about choice because we can always choose organic or privately labeled non-GMO.  It is an attempt to slow the development of GMO based on an unjustified, negative perspective of GMO.  GMO can increase yields and benefit the environment.  Curtailment of technology, such as GMO, will make it much tougher to deal with growing population and climate change.
