The Science and Spirit of GMOs
Plants are great beings. They have been altered by using genetic engineering techniques to contain foreign genes. The effect of widespread use of genetically modified plants has been devastating to the entire world on many levels. Many of these effects have only recently become apparent.
Libby Rutledge will discuss recent evidence of the dangers of GM plants, and will explain how a GM plant is constructed and how to detect the foreign DNA. She will also share her experience of how the GM plants are energetically affected, and what are the long term consequences of this on our planet.
Libby has a Ph.D. in Molecular and Cellular Biology, has many years experience in research genetically engineering viruses and cells. She is Life Sciences department head at Salish Kootenai College, a tribal college in Pablo, MT.
