Dr. Thierry Vrain is a retired genetic engineer who resides in British Columbia. He had a long career as a soil biologist and genetic scientist, retiring as a research director at the Canadian Department of Agriculture. Having taken into account the large amount of scientific evidence that shows how synthetic pesticides can be hazardous to human health and the environment, Dr. Vrain has decided to sound the warning about the multiple dangers associated with pesticide use in crop production and domestic applications.
"I became concerned a few years ago that there were so many scientific studies pointing the finger away from the GMO smokescreen. I am now publicly raising the alarm about the current excesses of industrial agriculture, particularly antibiotic contamination of engineered crops and food.” - Dr. Thierry Vrain
