Rachel Parent, 14, argues GMO foods should be labeled.

Rachel Parent, 14,  founder of the Canadian youth group Kids Right to Know, which supports the labeling genetically modified foods, calmly challenged the  verbal assault of Kevin O’Leary, the co-host of the CBC business news program The Lang and O’Leary Exchange.

In the episode that aired last week, the pair initially debated whether the Canadian and United States governments should consider the health studies conducted by genetically modified seed makers like Monsanto valid.

The conversation got ugly when O’Leary accused Parent of being a “lobbyist” against GMOs and then equated her position of questioning GMOs to somehow supporting malnutrition and the death of children. Remaining cool-headed and composed throughout his harangue, Parent countered that people have a basic right to know what’s in our food and explained she has no vested interest in honest food labeling. She then highlighted the most basic facts for O'Leary: genetically engineered crops don’t actually out-produce organic crops, GMOs are treating human beings as lab rats, and consumers have a right to know what they're buying or eating.
