Or as Wilamette Week puts it… “Living in a town where words like ‘locavore’ and ‘bike gardener’ are commonplace, consider it your civic duty to listen when PSU professor Lisa Weasel talks up her newly released book, Food Fray: Inside the Controversy over Genetically Modified Food. Why should you care what she has to say about the disturbing prevalence of GM corn and soybeans or Swiss magic rice that could cure vitamin A deficiencies the world over? Because she’s a freakin’ molecular biologist who got a grant from the National Science Foundation to study this stuff. And she’s a member of the guv’s task force on developing public policy for Oregon biopharmaceutical crops.”
