A METROFARM.COM RELEASE FROM MICHAEL OLSON...
Nell Newman had a notion the market was ready for an organic snack food.
So in partnership with her father, actor Paul Newman, Nell established
Newman's Own, a line of snack foods that "just happen to be organic."
Newman's Own became a hit throughout the land.
Nell now has the notion that something is amiss in the outright acceptance
of genetically modified foods here in the United States. So Nell is again
putting her money where her notion is and inducing other philanthropic
organizations, including the Rockefeller Foundation, to do likewise.
This Saturday morning at 9am on AM 1080 KSCO and AM 1340 KOMY, Saturday
Morning Agriculture with Michael Olson will feature a conversation with
Nell Newman about the struggle to position genetically engineered foods in
the mind of the marketplace.
Topics will include why genetically modified foods were rejected in Europe
and accepted in the United States; why Newman funds the crusade against
GMO's with profits from Newman's Own snackfoods; why other philanthropic
organizations have begun funding the debate over GMO's; and what will
happen to the organic food industry if GMO's become accepted in the
Listeners are invited to call the live program with questions and comments.

morning, the show will be recorded and archived with a discussion group so
