Evidence points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the US population, especially among children. Gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases, and infertility are just some of the problems implicated in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat genetically modified soybeans and corn.
Monsanto’s strong arm tactics, the FDA’s policies, and how the USDA ignores a growing health emergency are also laid bare. This film engages its viewers to examine their diet, and accelerate the consumer tipping point against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) already underway.
Great discussion at the Hydro Fracking Panel last month! If you would like to contact any of the speakers here is the contact info

“In exposing the bullying and deceit of the biotech industry, Jeffrey Smith’s mesmerizing film shines a bright light of hope that we can reclaim our health and our food systems. Meticulously documented, thoroughly comprehensive, and rivetingly presented, this is more than an adventure story with intense drama and high stakes. It is in fact one of the most important stories ever told. Watch it and be galvanized, inspired, and engaged. Then tell everyone you know.” John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America, Founder and Board Chair Emeritus of EarthSave International.
