Rachel's interest in food labels began when she was 11 years old. Rachel began working on a school project and chose the subject of what's contained in the foods that we eat/ While researching forher project, Rachel found herself confused and angry by Genetically Modified Organisms. Specifically the Canadian Government wasn't conducting any testing on the effects of GMO's and our health.
Canada is one of the countries where GMO labelling on our foods is not mandatory.|
Companies in the United States may voluntarily label products that contain GMO's
In 2013, CBC’s Kevin O’Leary suggested on one of the episodes of the Lang and O’Leary Exchange that people who stand against GMOs should "stop eating" so we can "get rid of them." Rachel was outraged, and challenged him to a debate. O’Leary agreed, and the resulting debate was posted on YouTube, raising awareness about GMOs through over 2 million views in less
than two months, along with countless national and international media:
