11/1/2012 - Library: Movie About Genetically Engineered Foods on December 5, 2012

A special movie presentation about the serious threats genetically engineered foods pose to our health will take place on Wednesday, December 5, 2012 at 1:30pm in the Kingsley Room at the Southbury Public Library. A short discussion of the film will follow led by local Naturopathic Physicians Alice Bell, ND, MS, and Carolyn Graham, ND, RN.

The film is based on a book by Jeffrey M. Smith, author of the world’s bestselling book on genetically modified organisms (GMOs), Seeds of Deception. He is a leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices.

As described on the DVD case this film includes never before seen evidence pointing to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the US population. 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. According to the website, (http://geneticroulette.com/) this seminal documentary provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, especially among children, and offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future. The film is narrated by Lisa Oz and is eighty-five minutes long.
