Canadian student Rachel Parent recently challenged Canadian Businessman and TV personality Kevin O’Leary to a debate about genetically engineered food after he said “Stupid people protest about Monsanto.” She said:
"Have me on your show next week, and if you promise not to use the word “stupid,” I won’t use the word “fascist.” "They debated on July 31, 2013:
"At least test it. Properly. Adequately. That way we know, as the consumer, it's safe."When O'Leary asked, point blank, if she was anti-science, Parent replied:
"I'm not anti-science, but I'm for responsible science and ethical progress. ... Science that's proven safe by not the very same companies that stand to gain by their approval."
* Her passion and ability to articulate remind me of Malala Yousafzai.
