For the past 25 years, Melissa Diane Smith has been a pioneering health journalist and holistic nutritionist counseling clients and reporting on health-impactful nutrition topics that are not covered by mainstream media. Join the First Lady of Nutrition and Melissa as they address head on the crisis caused by genetically modified foods (GMOs) beginning with a rundown of the two main types of GMOs on the market (herbicide-resistant and pesticide-producing), the Big Five (corn, cotton, canola, soybeans, and sugar from sugar beets), the main risks – and how people can learn more key points in Melissa’s book, Going Against GMOs. In addition to buying non-GMO and organic as much as possible, Melissa is passionate about going beyond and taking action to support regenerative farming. This includes organic meat products from animals raised holistically through managed grazing that actually improve soil health. Improved soil health, in turn, helps conserve water, improve our environment, and produce more nutritious food.
