Lecture – The Poison in Our Food Supply by Thierry Vrain
Tuesday, Mar. 29
Soil biologist and genetic engineer Dr. Thierry Vrain has studied first-hand the damage done to our bodies by the proliferation of glyphosate (Round-Up) and genetically modified foods (GMOs) in our food supply. These dangers are well known and covered up by the manufacturer, Monsanto. Dr. Vrain will explain the latest in scientific studies in a compelling address on this serious health danger as every day we are being poisoned and as such our health is deteriorating. In a special visit to the US, renowned agriculture expert Dr. Thierry Vrain will explain to us the poison in our food supply and what we can do about it. Dr. Vrain spent the last 40 years with the Canada Department of Agriculture. This lecture is hosted by the Organic Benefits Alliance of Houston, Urban Harvest, HMNS and Anume with sponsorship by from MicroLife.

By collaborating on focused tasks during this short period, small groups of makers are capable of producing remarkable results.
Anyone who is excited about making things with science is welcome to attend – no experience in science or hacking is necessary, just an insatiable curiosity.
