Episode 30 of ¡Que Vivan las Acequias! – produced by Miguel Santistevan of the NMAA in collaboration with Cultural Energy (www.culturalenergy.org). Made possible with a grant from the Panta Rhea and Christensen Foundations.
In show #30 we hear from another presenter of the 3rd Annual Tierra, Agua, y Cultura agriculture conference held in Espanola on March 8, 2008. The theme of this conference was ‘honoring our relationship to food.’ Our presenter, Dr. Lorin Pang of Hawaii, informs us about the health effects and other issues around genetic engineering and genetically engineered food. Dr. Pang has a long career history which includes 24 years with the Army Medical Corporation and 20 years with the Walter Reed Institute of Research. He has been a consultant to the World Health organization since 1985 and has 60 published articles in medical journals regarding the diagnosis, drug treatments, and vaccines for a variety of tropical diseases. In addition, he has had several segments on the ‘Discovery Channel’ and has been selected as one of America’s Best Doctors for the last three years.
Special thanks to Cipriano Vigil for our theme music and Teocalli for this month’s musical selection…
