Dr.Vrain an expert on genetically engineered crops was a genetic engineer scientist in agricultural research heading a Canadian Government Biotechnology Department.

This video describes the details of this technology which are not often told to the public which may be a valid cause for concern for consumers of GMO crops in general. Thanks for watching and becoming properly informed on the topic and the risks involved.                                                  

While many parts of the world are refusing to accept GMO seed crops, many items sold in food stores locally are derivatives of GMO engineering and consumers should be made aware of the possible risks involved when eating such items.
