Whitewash by
Carey Gillam
As you already know, one of the chief applications for genetic engineering is to render crops immune to the effects glyphosate, a dangerous weedkiller, so that weeds in surrounding areas can be killed without harming crops.   This has exposed farmworkers, consumers, and anyone who comes in contact with the air and water polluted by glyphosate to be exposed to this harmful and reportedly carcinogenic chemical. 

We are delighted that Ms. Gillam will be speaking at one of the foremost schools of business administration in the U.S., under the auspices of the Stigler Center for the Study of the Economy and the State (https://research.chicagobooth.edu/stigler) which states as it's goal: "... to promote and disseminate research on regulatory capture, crony capitalism, and the various distortions that special interest groups impose on capitalism."

Do not miss this opportunity to learn about this important threat to our health and our environment!   

Here again is the invitation; registration here is REQUIRED for this free event.  We strongly  suggest you register soon!t

NOTE:  While one of the principal uses of genetic engineering is to facilitate the application of the herbicide (weedkiller) Glyphosate on certain crops, Glyphosate is widely used in other contexts as well.  So Carey Gillam's book Whitewash will be of interest to food consumers generally, and not only to those principally interested in genetically engineered (or bioengineered) crops.
