An expert on the food industry and genetically modified organisms gave a presentation to a group of people hungry to learn more about what they are eating.
Carey Gillam, who is based in Overland Park, said food companies maintain GMO foods are safe to eat while some consumers aren’t so sure. The primary point of contention now is labeling. “It’s been a very controversial issue,” she said.
Gillam was an investigative reporter with Reuters News for 17 years, covering the biotech industry and the fight over GMO labeling. In October 2015, she left the news agency and became research director for the U.S. Right to Know, a nonprofit that advocates for transparency in the food system.
