When pro-GMO Speakers Go Bad…


Check out the new blog post by Ken Roseboro, editor/publisher of The Organic & Non-GMO Report and The Non-GMO Sourcebook, Zero Tolerance for a Different Perspective on GMOs. Him and I came up against some pretty angry pro-GMO speakers at the recent IFT conference in Chicago. They not only outright lied, but were belligerent and rude. Wayne Parrott said, “GMO is completely safe & the organic people are making up stories and not telling the whole truth so GMO’s look worse than they are.” That was one of the more mild statements.

After the 3 speakers finished there was a Q & A, Ken asked questions in a very mild manner tone, refuting Mr. Chassy’s statistics and David Chassy lost his mind. In a complete rage, he literally dismissed Ken with his hand like a 5 year old calling him “ignorant”, spouting, “the organic community are terrorists and fear mongers.” Needless to say that was just the beginning of his useless rant and he seriously needed a time out.

It’s a very interesting read…

Hi, I’m Kirsten

Kirsten is a Registered Dietician in training, pursuing certification towards becoming a Registered Dietitian, and a Gluten Free Nutrition Consultant. She has a Bachelors of Science from Illinois State and and a Bachelors of Science from Metropolitan State University of Denver in Human Nutrition and Dietetics.

I was diagnosed w/ Celiac disease in 2010, my goal is to provide a path for healthy living to individuals who are seeking a tailored made lifestyle specific to them and their needs.

I believe that everyone is different, there’s not one diet that can work for everyone. The word Diet, is a short-term concept, let’s change diet into ‘lifestyle change’ instead and think long-term. Make healthier decisions not just today but for the years ahead of us as well. A lifestyle change is a journey not a sprint.

Living the gluten free lifestyle is not an easy one and can be very overwhelming: from grocery shopping and social events, to deglutening your own household. I will help you navigate the gluten-free maze with tips, tricks, humor, healthy recipes and more.
