Genetic Roulette – The Gamble of Our Lives by Jeffrey M. Smith (DVD)
Jeffrey M. Smith is a leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices. He is also the author of the world's bestselling books on GMOs, including Seeds of Deception, Exposing Industry and Government Lies About the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You're Eating and Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods.
In his new DVD, Genetic Roulette – The Gamble of Our Lives, never-before-seen evidence points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the U.S. 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.
The DVD is narrated by Lisa Oz (daughter of Dr. Oz) and features interviews with physicians, scientists, farmers, dieticians, chefs, and educators, all discussing the problems with genetically engineered foods.Americans get sick more than people in other industrialized countries, and we are getting sicker. Since the mid-1990s, there has been a precipitous increase in the production of genetically modified foods. This increase, without our knowledge or consent, has effectively taken control of our food supply. It has also produced a situation in which the number of Americans suffering from at least three chronic illnesses has nearly doubled in twenty years. Why is this happening?
Monsanto's strong-arm tactics, the FDA's fraudulent policies, and how the USDA ignores a growing health emergency are laid bare. This sometimes shocking film may change your diet, help you protect your family, and accelerate the consumer tipping point against genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The epidemic increase in cancer, obesity, allergies, autism, diabetes, asthma, and intestinal disorders are the same conditions that animals eating genetically engineered foods develop in the lab. It seems like we, and our children, are the guinea pigs of the biotech industry. And, contrary to what ‘industry’ states, there are NO long-term safety studies.
Genetic Roulette covers everything, starting with the basics: What is a GMO? How are GMOs made? It also has sections on the possible connection of GMOs to allergies, autism, intestinal damage, and birth defects.
If you eat food, this is a must-see movie. Share it with everyone you know, and let’s get GMOs out of our food supply.
Running time for the main feature is 85 minutes.
Narrated by Jeremy Irons, produced by The Gaia Foundation and African Biodiversity Network, this landmark film shows how the story of seeds in the hands of multinationals has become one of loss, control, dependence, and debt.
Jeffrey Smith presents a concise, hard-hitting talk to more than 800 healthcare practitioners at Andrew Weil's Arizona Center for Integrated Medicine conference in 2011.
This presentation excerpt describes the unholy alliance between the U.S. government and Monsanto, as well as some highlights of Monsanto's dark history.
Permission is granted for individuals and groups to show the film, Genetic Roulette, at not-for-profit events.
“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.”
