By Peggy McGrath
7 to 8:30 p.m., Thursday, April 12 Trinity High School, 7574 Division Street, River Forest
Presentation by Dr. Thierry Vrain, a genetic engineer who resides in British Columbia. Following a long career as a soil biologist and genetic scientist during which he analyzed the large amount of scientific evidence that shows how synthetic pesticides harm human health and the environment, Dr. Vrain is sounding the warning about the multiple dangers associated with pesticide use in crop production and domestic applications. He refutes the claims of the biotechnology companies that their engineered crops yield more, that they require fewer pesticide applications, that they have no impact on the environment and, of course, that they are safe to eat.
Dr. Susan Buchanan, Director of the Great Lakes Center for Children’s Environmental Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, will moderate the discussion following Dr Vrain’s presentation.
