(NaturalNews) During a recent segment he hosted on genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), Dr. Mehmet Oz, whose duplicitous positions on vaccine safety have called into question his legitimacy, actually expressed support for mandatory GMO labeling. In the opening of the segment, which features a powerful interview with GMO expert Jeffrey Smith, Dr. Oz can be heard saying, "you have the right to know what's in your food," a position that more than 90 percent of polled Americans also happen to share.

A rarity within the corporate-controlled media, airtime was given to both Smith and Dr. Robin Bernhoft, M.D., a past president of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, which several years ago (http://www.naturalnews.com), presented the truth about the dangers of GMOs to millions of viewers nationwide. And in the process, the facts about GMOs were able to be clearly presented at a pivotal time just weeks before Californians head to the polls to vote on Proposition 37, the mandatory GMO labeling initiative.

"There's thousands of doctors around the United States that prescribe non-GMO diets, and they and their patients are reporting getting better from a variety of diseases very quickly," said Smith to Dr. Oz about myth of assumed GMO safety. "The same problems that they're getting better from are found in laboratory animals when they're fed GMOs, and in livestock, they're getting better from these same problems when they take GMOs out of the diet."

Smith, who recently released his powerful documentary film Genetic Roulette, explained in further depth to Dr. Oz and his viewers how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ignored the recommendations of its own scientists more than 20 years ago, who were well aware of the fact that GMOs were linked to organ damage, reproductive disorders, and various other problems, but nobody in the upper echelons of food safety bureaucracy paid any attention to their documented and substantiated concern, and instead chose to declare GMOs safe with no evidence to back this claim.

"There is an increasing incidence not just in reflux but also in allergies, autoimmunity, asthma, high cholesterol -- there's a wide range of chronic illnesses," added Dr. Bernhoft to the dialogue about the deadly consequences of eating GMOs. "If you take people off genetically-modified food, then things like reflux, type-2 diabetes, and allergies improve, and sometimes they go away completely."

Biotech shill Martina Newell-McGloughlin refuses to share stage with Jeffrey Smith

Following their conversation with Dr. Oz; however, both Smith and Dr. Bernhoft were ushered off the stage to make way for Martina Newell-McGloughlin, a pro-GMO shill from the University of California, Davis (UCD) who refused to engage in an honest debate. As part of their pre-arranged stipulations for being given airtime, Smith and Dr. Bernhoft were told they would not be allowed to share the same platform with Newell-McGloughlin, who insisted on spewing her propaganda without refute.

Co-Director of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH)'s Training Program in Biomolecular Technology, Newell-McGloughlin nervously began spouting lies from the moment she was allowed to speak, claiming that scientists have been genetically-modifying food "for thousands of years." Hybridization and selective breeding, which is more than likely what Newell-McGloughlin was referring to, are not the same things as genetically-modifying crops and animals. But this fact went undisputed because Smith and Dr. Bernhoft were forced to leave the stage, and Dr. Oz, of course, never questioned her about it.

Newell-McGloughlin continued her squeamish rant by claiming that, when given the choice, she actually chooses GMOs over natural alternatives like organic food when feeding her family because they are "safer," she claimed, and more sustainable than any other agriculture system in history. Such statements are utter nonsense from a truly scientific perspective, but then again, this appears to be precisely why Newell-McGloughlin would not allow neither Smith nor Dr. Bernhoft to occupy the seats next to her -- they would have torn her ridiculous non-arguments to shreds.

The entire Dr. Oz segment on GMOs, though designed to shield the biotech industry from honest scrutiny, actually ended up exposing it for the fraud it truly is. The fact that not a single biotech representative would agree to participate in an honest debate proves the industry has no leg to stand on, and would rather hide in the shadows that face the facts.
