A vocal spokesman for GMOs during his career at Agriculture Canada, Scientist Dr Thierry Vrain is now speaking out against GMOs. He farms organically now. Unlike people like me who have read the science and come to the conclusions that GMOs are not necessary to feed the world, he actually has done the science.
In his TED talk http://tedxtalks.ted.com/video/The-Gene-Revolution-The-Future, Dr Vrain demonstrates that GMOs don’t increase yields, do increase pesticide use. Biotech says that the crops use fewer pesticides but that was before superweeds and superpests. Pesticide use has gone up exponentially since GMOs were introduced. Hear it from the expert himself Monday November the 18th at the University Of Victoria. Come with questions and bring sceptics!
