GMOs (3): Health Dangers

In brief

More from Gary Null's documentary, GMO: Ticking Time Bomb (part 4 & some of part 3). Focus is on the environmental damage and health risks--both of the genetically modified crops themselves and of the potent herbicides that are used to grow them.

Most GMOs are genetically modified in order to survive exposure to toxic herbicides such as Monsanto's "Roundup"--not to increase yield, improve drought resistance, resist blight, or any other arguably-good reason.

This installment includes a prologue by KD and a brief news story about a new GMO labeling bill just introduced in Connecticut.

Notes, credits, & links

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "unisex bathroom") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.

You can listen to any installment of New World Notes online or else download it (as an mp3 audio file) for later listening. The show is archived at both and (from #90 onwards) The Internet Archive. Either link should get you a reverse-chrono listing of available installments. Or browse the show's Web site: Each installment has a page, and each page has links to the recorded audio. See the gray sidebar on the right ("CONTENTS [Links]") for a table of contents.
