Dr Michael Antoniou & Sir Julian Rose
February 8th 10:00am - 11:10am
Deeper Look at GMO's
Dr Micheal Antoniou is Head of the Gene Expression and Therapy Group at King's College, London School of Medicine. He is replacing Jeffrey Smith who cannot attend due to unforeseen circumstances, with an exciting talk on GMO's. More details to follow
Sir Julian Rose is an early pioneer of UK organic farming, a social entrepreneur, international activist, writer, actor and President of The International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside. He owns and manages the Hardwick Estate in South Oxfordshire, which he converted to mixed organic farming starting in 1975.
Julian will speak about GMO and the battle which Jadwiga Lopata and he led to create a GMO Free Poland. He will also speak about the European Union's position on GM seeds and food and the current position in the UK. Julian, with Jadwiga and other colleagues, recently drove his tractor down to his local town, Pangbourne in Berkshire, and organised a demonstration outside the organic store in solidarity with Polish farmers. At the entrance to his Estate Julian has mounted a big sign declaring the Estate to be a "GMO Free Zone".
He is author of the just published book "In Defence of Life - A Radical Reworking of Green Wisdom" available at the conference: www.julianrose.info
Monsanto's Roundup / Glyphosphate & Modern Disease
Stephanie Seneff PhD
February 8th 11:20am - 12:30pm
“GMOs and Roundup: a Marriage Made in Hell” Glyphosate, the active ingredient in the weedkiller, Roundup, is claimed by its manufacturer, Monsanto, to be almost nontoxic to humans. The usage of Roundup in the US has risen sharply in step with the widespread adoption of genetically engineered “Roundup-Ready” monocrops. In parallel, we’ve seen a sharp rise in autism rates and in digestive problems like gluten intolerance and inflammatory bowel disease. Is there a connection? In this talk, I will present strong evidence that glyphosate’s known biological effects disrupt gut bacteria, leading to an overgrowth of pathogens and a cascade of far-reaching consequences that can easily be linked to the health issues we see today, including autism, Alzheimer’s disease, obesity, digestive disorders, depression, and breast cancer.
