Subject: [permaculture] FW: [COMFOOD:] This week only-Watch Jeffrey Smith's 
new GMO documentary free online

Before I watched this film I had no idea GMOs were so pervasive or linked to
so many illnesses. Well worth watching. This film needs to go viral in
California! - CS


This week only, watch for free online a new documentary that reveals the
serious health impacts of genetically engineered foods in our diets and
shows how you can protect your family.  Available from September 15-22 at
<http://www.GeneticRouletteMovie.com> www.GeneticRouletteMovie.com

"It is in fact one of the most important stories ever told."

-John Robbins, Bestselling author of Diet for a New America and Food


Genetic Roulette-The Gamble of Our Lives has audiences rushing home to clear
out their cupboards of dangerous genetically modified (GM) foods. The
evidence presented in the film makes the best case yet for why genetically
modified organisms (GMOs) are linked to disorders such as allergies,
inflammatory bowel disease, infertility, autism, and cancer, to name a few.
One health practitioner, Mary Tobin, L.Ac., said the film "provides abundant
evidence that eating a GMO-free diet is the single most important change
Americans can make for their health.

That evidence not only includes doctors and patients testimonials, but also
veterinarians and farmers who describe dramatic health improvements in
animals that switched to non-GMO feed. The categories of diseases that
improve in humans and animals are the ones found in lab animals fed GMOs.
And these are many of the same categories, e.g. immune, reproductive, and
gastrointestinal disorders that have been on the rise in the US population
since GMOs were introduced.

Exposing the Dark Side

This 85 minute documentary reveals, what Author John Robbins calls, "the
bullying and deceit of the biotech industry,"- including manipulation of
research, attacks on independent scientists and their findings, and
infiltration and control of government regulators.

The film also reveals for the first time to horrific impact among workers on
a South Africa farm, who were consuming a higher amount of GMO corn than
probably any other group in the world.

Upbeat, Empowering and World Changing

Although this film's eye-opening evidence in the film is sometimes shocking,
it is by no means a downer. According to Robbins, it "shines a bright light
of hope that we can reclaim our health and our food systems." Smith explains
that as little as 5% of the US population switching to non-GMO foods should
deliver a tipping point, inspiring food companies to kick out GM
ingredients. It was such a consumer rejection that already kicked GMOs out
of Europe.

The film is being released right in the throes of the California campaign
for Prop 37. If it passes in November, food companies will have to label
products made with GM ingredients (like they do in nearly 50 other
countries). Not only will this make it far easier for people to buy
healthier non-GMO choices, the expected migration away from labeled GM
products will probably accelerate the tipping point.

Genetic Roulette-The Gamble of Our Lives is a production of The Institute
for Responsible Technology <http://responsibletechnology.org/>  (IRT). Those
who view the film during the free showing week are encouraged to support
IRT's efforts, through donations

"GENETIC ROULETTE unveils a world most of us have never seen. It raises
alarming questions about GMOs, and we deserve answers. For all that you
love, hear this message and act now."                         - Frances
Moore Lappé, author of Diet for a Small Planet and EcoMind

Genetic Roulette-The Gamble of Our Lives, from September 15-22. The film
lays bare the serious health impacts of genetically modified foods (GM) as
reported by scientists, doctors, veterinarians, as well as other experts. We
are launching this free viewing week now because the movie can better equip
voters in California with additional information on GMOs that they need to
make sensible choices for Prop 37, which would require labels on GE foods.
Otherwise they might fall prey to Monsanto's multi-million dollar
disinformation campaign.

The film is produced by our nonprofit Institute, and we have a broad
coalition of support for promoting this free showing week. Please let us
know if you can share this email, or some such announcement, and tell us
approximately how many received it.

Please also share on your Facebook and Twitter accounts detailed information
about the free showing week:
