October 13, 2004 - Biotech Food

There's a revolution going on in the farm fields and on the dinner tables of America -- a revolution that's being fought behind closed doors of corporate boardrooms and government agencies over the use of genetically modified organisms in our food.

Did you know that more than 34% of the US corn crop and 75% of the soy bean crop were genetically modified? As a result, nearly all of us eat genetically modified food everyday, in products with soy oils, corn syrups, cotton seed oil ... you name it.

The Future of Food, a new documentary, unravels the complex web of market and political forces that are changing the nature of what we eat. Food has gone from being a basic need to part of a larger billion dollar battle to control the world's food production.

    What some people think about Beyond Organic Radio"

    "I love your show - it has inspired my husband and me to change the way we look at things and carve out a little organic corner of our own in the world. It is good to not hear a biased view on this subject and one of the reasons I keep coming back."

    Janet V., Corbeil, Ontario, Canada

    "I just wanted to send you a thank-you for providing such informative, helpful programming. To know that resources such as yours are out there to help us recapture, retain, and maintain a simpler, whole life style is encouraging in light of the despair felt by many of us for the greed and irresponsibilities of some companies."
