The Health Gamble of Our Lives
researchers and advocates argue that genetically engineered foods
(GMOs) are a major contributor to rising disease rates in the U.S.,
especially among children. Gastrointestinal disorders, allergies,
inflammatory diseases, and infertility are just some of the problems
already seen in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat GMO
soybeans and corn. In this talk, learn about the health risks of
genetically engineered foods, how to avoid them, and where exactly your
food comes from.
Jeffrey M. Smith is the author of "Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies about the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Food You’re Eating," "Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Food," and creator of the new documentary, "Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives." Smith has lectured in 30 countries and has been quoted by world leaders and hundreds of media outlets.
Co-sponsored by GMO Free Arizona, The Urban Farm, Changing Hands Bookstore, and The Institute for Responsible Technology.
