Schmalreide pronounced a business isn’t perplexing to change a approach people eat, though instead debunk some of a concerns people have about their food with this event.

Schmalreide pronounced a common regard among consumers is genetically mutated organisms, or GMOs.

“People are fearful that a GMO is like an tangible bomb inside a plant,” he said.

A rancher for dual decades, Schmalreide positive people that he and his family aren’t eating a opposite set of crops than those he sells to grocery stores.

“We’re not flourishing something and flitting it off on a public, since we’re eating a accurate same food they are,” he said.
