GMO program to be held at James V. Brown Library

What are genetically modified organisms (GMO) and why should they be avoided? Should people have the right to know what they are consuming?

A program offered at the James V. Brown Library will answer some of these questions.

Discover why people may want to go GMO-free for themselves and their families, and find out how to do this in a simple way.

Prop 37, California’s right-to-know labeling initiative bill, would have labeled any GMO food sold in California.

Food corporations have spent $46 million dollars to prevent the peoples’ right to know.

The program will address questions such as, if GMOs are safe, why companies don’t want people to know which foods they ingest contain GMO ingredients.

Come to a free lecture 6 p.m. April 10, and learn what GMOs are, how to avoid them and how this affects health.

Dr. Gregory Pais shares his 39 years of nutritional experience to help people become GMO free.

Pais is a licensed naturopathic doctor who has been practicing in Northcentral PA since 1998.

He is board certified in classical homeopathy and has been working with diet and nutrition since 1974.

The program is free and open to the public, and will be held on the third floor of the Welch Family Wing at the library.

Registration is suggested but not required.
