Ralph talks to professor Sheldon Krimsky about the controversy surrounding GMOs and the conflict of interest inherent in corporate funded scientific studies. Plus he talks to Paul Hudson of Flyers Rights about how the FAA dropped the ball and whether the Boeing Max 8 should ever fly again.
Sheldon Krimsky is a Professor of Humanities and Social Sciences at Tufts University, and also an adjunct professor in the Department of Public Health and Community Medicine at the university’s School of Medicine. Professor Krimsky is the author of 16 books, including GMOs Decoded and Conflicts of Interest in Science.
“Even in the most definitive report that has come out on GMOs by the National Academy of Sciences, they say there is no overall productivity benefit across the board for GMOs.”
Professor Sheldon Krimsky, author of “GMOs Decoded: A Skeptics View of Genetically Modified Foods”
Paul Hudson has been a groundbreaking public interest advocate for over thirty years: In the 1970s in energy and utility policy, in the 1980s for crime victim rights, in the 1990s to 2012 for air travelers and terrorist victims. He led the Pan Am 103/Lockerbie bombing victim family organization and the Aviation Consumer Action Project. Today, he is the president of Flyers Rights, which is keeping on top of the Boeing Max 8 story.
“It’s not looking good for the 737 Max… Personally, I don’t know the whole story, but it would by my guess that we won’t see this plane back in the air any time soon.”
Paul Hudson, Executive Director of Flyers Rights
