The Gene Revolution, The Future of Agriculture: Dr. Thierry Vrain at TEDxComoxValley

Thierry Vrain retired 10 years ago after a long career as a soil biologist and ended head of a department of molecular biology running his own research program to engineer nematode resistance genes in crops. In his retirement career as a gardener he learned five or six years ago how the soil ecosystem really functions and have been preaching ever since. He find himself with a good knowledge of genetic engineering technologies surrounded by people in fear of being hurt by the food they eat. He found that he cannot ignore them anymore and has joined the campaign to educate consumers about the potential health problems reported in the recent scientific literature.

Thank you to Karen for this - and what a succinct and brilliant presentation from a man of humility and obvious integrity, who well understands that the answer to the future of agriculture still remains in the soil and that it will BE "not necessarily engineered" - BRILLIANT

THANK GOD for this haven of rest from GMO which is Europe -

for those in denial of our complete dependence on NATURE
