(NaturalNews) According to the new documentary Genetic Roulette, "...physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improved." Information is power. For a limited time, this important documentary can be viewed online without cost.
In the wake of the startling findings that GM corn causes massive tumors, liver damage and shortened life spans in rats (www.naturalnews.com/037249_GMO_study_cancer_tumors_organ_damage.html), it is vital now more than ever to educate friends and family about the dangers of GM food. Genetic Roulette couldn't have arrived at a better time. A production of the Institute for Responsible Technology, Genetic Roulette features interviews with farmers, scientists, physicians, educators and chefs who explore the dangers of genetically engineered food. The film is by Jefferey Smith, author of The Seeds of Deception, and seeks to expose "the unintended but real health consequences of genetically engineering our food," said promoter Rodney Robinson. The documentary covers everything from the basic defining criteria of genetically modified organisms to California Ballot Initiative 37. Genetic Roulette also examines the significant connection between GM food and the rise of birth defects, autism, allergies and intestinal damage. The documentary can be viewed for free until September 22, 2012 at: www.responsibletechnology.org
FDA ignores the dangers of genetically modified organisms
The history of genetically modified organisms is tainted with all kinds of corruption and fraud. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) stated in 2009 that, "several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) food, including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system." These findings led the AAEM to ask physicians to "educate their patients, the medical community, and the public to avoid GM foods when possible." Yet the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) claimed they were unaware of any information that genetically modified food was substantially different from conventionally grown food -- thereby GM food did not need testing and was safe to eat. The truth of the matter is that scientists did in fact repeatedly warn the FDA about the health and environmental dangers of GMOs. Due to political and financial interests, these red flags were ignored by the US government.
Stop the madness. In the rallying words of activist Tanya Sitton, M.S., "...take this opportunity to aggravate the biotechnology megacoporations pinning their hopes on an uninformed and apathetic public: watch, learn, reflect, and share!"
