Speaker:  Becky Talyn
Topic - GMOs-Genetically Modified Organisms
"What is the Big Deal?
"

GMOs are plastered all over the news, but many people honestly do not really know what they are, or why they should be concerned.  In this seminar we will discuss how GMOs are made, how they are different from other kinds of crops/food, what the potential benefits are, what the potential risks are, and what the evidence there  is (so far) about their safety for people and the planet.  We'll finish up with a discussion of GMO labeling, how to avoid GMOs when shopping, and what we can all do to get more involved.

Our speaker Becky Talyn: "Of many hats--including mother; Dr. Becky Presents..., a customized PowerPoint presentation service; Rancho de los Proyectos, a small farm specializing in organic seasonal fruits and vegetables; La Leche League; Label GMOs; Green Mamas buying club; homeschooler; biologist; and instructor at Cal State San Bernardinio.  Becky earned her BA is from the University of California, Santa Barbara and her Ph.D. from University of Maine.
