Rachel Parent, founder of "Kids Right to Know," just wants people to be aware of what's in their food, and to be able to avoid GMOs if they so wish.

Does she know what a lobbyist is? asks Canadian TV host Kevin O'Leary.

Yes, and she just wants people to be aware of what's in their food.

Let's say instead of being white and privileged, she was born in China, had no vitamin A in her rice, went blind, and died. Does she still hate GMOs?

She'd like to see some independent studies. Really, she just wants people to be aware of what's in their food.

Does she worry about being used as an environmentalist shill?

No. And regardless, "If you're going to do something to our food, we should definitely know about it."
