About the Speaker
Dr. Thierry Vrain was a genetic engineer/scientist in agricultural research, former head of Biotechnology at Canadian Government Summerland Research Station. He believed in the promise of GMOs, that they would increase yields, increase nutritional content, reduce herbicide and pesticide use. Since then, he has read a lot of the research being done abroad, and now understands the claims for GMOs are contradicted by recent findings, and that GMOs pose real risks to our health, and the environment.
