Did you know that if you do your food shopping in a typical grocery store much of the food you and your family are consuming is genetically engineered or genetically modified?
And did you know that the patents to the seeds of these foods are owned by a very small number of corporations - 10 to be exact - and of the 10, 3 of them own 50% of the patents. Did you know that this puts the cultivation and distribution of the food supply into the hands of a very small group of select people?
And did you know that deep in a glacier in Norway there is an international seed vault operated by the United Nations? These are just some of the facts our guest shared with us yesterday. Mary Jo Anderson is back with us today and we will continue our discussion on The Seed Supply: Controlling What You Eat, Part 2.
