Featuring: Mira Shiva, Jeffrey Smith and Rachel Parent
From a very young age, Rachel showed true compassion for the protection of animals and the environment. When Rachel was 12 years old, she gave a speech for the students at her School about GMOs. She decided to speak about GMOs because of the opportunity to change so many lives, to better everyone’s health, and help improve our overburdened health care system. Rachel understood that GMOs are affecting the entire planet, from humans to bees, the earth, and kids’ futures. She won a medal for her speech.
Rachel then went on to speak in front of a live audience at a Right to Know event in Toronto. She created a video, which was posted to YouTube, urgently warning children about the dangers of GMOs. She has been featured on CBC’s Lang & O’Leary show as a guest speaker on GMO-labeling, and has spoken on other news networks as well.
Mira Shiva is the head of the Public Policy Division at Voluntary Health Association of India and coordinator of the All India Drug Action Network. Well known both in India and abroad for her contribution in areas of social justice in health care,
rational drug use, women’s health and the survival of the poor in Third World countries, Shiva has made many remarkable efforts in order to make this world a better place to live in. She has been associated with civil society bodies and has been part of many government committees representing the voice of masses.
Jeffrey M. Smith
The leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices, Jeffrey Smith’s meticulous research documents how biotech companies continue to mislead legislators and safety
officials to put the health of society at risk and the environment in peril. His work expertly summarizes why the
safety assessments conducted by the FDA and regulators worldwide teeter on a foundation of outdated science and
false assumptions, and why genetically engineered foods must urgently become our nation’s top food safety priority.
