We are thrilled to announce our media partnership for ShiftCon 2014 with Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT), one of the most respected sources for accurate and up to date information on GMOs.
The Institute for Responsible Technology is a world leader in educating policy makers and the public about genetically modified (GM) foods and crops.
Founded in 2003 by international bestselling author and GMO expert Jeffrey Smith, IRT has worked in more than 30 countries on 6 continents, and is credited with improving government policies and influencing consumer-buying habits.
The Institute for Responsible Technology’s mission is to educate policy makers and the public about genetically modified crops and foods. They investigate the ricks and impact these crops have on health, the environment, economy, and agriculture. IRT also reports on the problems with the current research, regulations, corporate practices, and reporting surrounding these genetically modified foods.
Both IRT and ShiftCon believe in researching and educating others about the dangers of genetically modified ingredients. We are passionate about making changes not only in our homes and communities but nationwide, informing policy makers of the wants of the people. Together, we can make positive changes in how genetically modified crops and foods are viewed and treated.
