none

Join us next Tuesday March 26th at 7 pm EST as we talk with Jeffrey Smith about the dangers of genetically modified foods. We’ll be taking your questions LIVE at 646-378-0494. You can tune in HERE.

To learn more about Genetically Modified Foods, be sure to check out this blog article! You can also watch Jeffrey Smith’s documentary “Genetic Roulette” online.

Here’s a bit of background info about Jeffrey Smith from the Institute for Responsible Technology.

“The leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices, Jeffrey M. Smith, is the author of the world’s bestselling and #1 rated book on the health dangers genetically modified organisms (GMOs). His meticulous research documents how biotech companies continue to mislead legislators and safety officials to put the health of society at risk, and the environment in peril.

His first book Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies about the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You’re Eating masterfully combines the art of storytelling and investigative reporting. His second book, Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods, is the authoritative work on GMO health dangers. It includes 65 health dangers, linking GMOs in our food to toxic and allergic reactions, infertility, and damage to virtually every internal organ studied in lab animals. The book expertly summarizes why the safety assessments conducted by the FDA and regulators worldwide teeter on a foundation of outdated science and false assumptions, and why GM foods must urgently become our nation’s top food safety priority. Former UK environment minister says the revelations in Genetic Roulette may “change the global course of events this century.”

Mr. Smith has counseled leaders from every continent, campaigned to end the use of genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (rbGH or rbST), and influenced the first state laws in the United States regulating GMOs. An admired keynote speaker around the globe, Mr. Smith has been described as “a life-changer”. Mr. Smith has lectured in 30 countries and has been quoted by world leaders and hundreds of media outlets including, The New York Times, Washington Post, BBC World Service, Nature, The Independent, Daily Telegraph, New Scientist, The Times (London), Associated Press, Reuters News Service, LA Times, Time Magazine and Genetic Engineering News. Mr. Smith is also a popular guest on influential radio shows and television programs, such as the BBC, NPR, Fox News, Democracy Now and the Dr. Oz Show.

Former US National Institutes of Health scientist Candace Pert describes Jeffrey as “the leading world expert in the understanding and communication of the health issues surrounding genetically modified foods.”

Mr. Smith has united leaders to support, The Campaign for Healthier Eating in America, a revolutionary industry and consumer movement to remove GMOs from the US food supply. He is the executive director of the Institute for Responsible Technology, producer of the films Hidden Dangers in Kids’ Meals and Your Milk on Drugs—Just Say No!, writes an internationally syndicated column, Spilling the Beans, has a regular blog on the popular Huffington Post, and is followed on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

The Institute for Responsible Technology’s Campaign for Healthier Eating in America mobilizes citizens, organizations, businesses, and the media, to achieve the tipping point of consumer rejection of genetically modified foods.

The Institute produces a wide range of consumer education and advocacy tools for its visitors and newsletter readers, including the nation’s most popular non-GMO in-store brand publication, the Non-GMO Shopping Guide.

The Institute informs policy makers and the public around the world about the risks and impacts of GMOs on health, environment, agriculture, the global economy, and the problems associated with current research, regulation, corporate practices, and reporting.

Mr. Smith lives with his wife in Iowa, surrounded by genetically modified soybeans and corn.”

Genetically Modified Foods: Are They Safe?

Currently in the US, it is estimated that 70% of processed foods on our grocery store shelves contain genetically modified ingredients. Are these genetically modified food safe? I’ve done some research, and this is what I’ve found! READ MORE.

The Health Effects of Genetically Modified Coffee

This year coffee consumption in the United States has jumped ahead of soft drink consumption by more than 10%. The United States imports 35% of the world coffee bean supply to keep up with our consumption of over 400 million cups of coffee per day OR 4500 cups of coffee per second. The increasing popularity of coffee shows no sign of stopping; in 2010 56% of Americans consumed coffee, now in 2012 64% of Americans enjoy the beverage. How healthy is it to consume that much coffee? How are coffee bean farmers keeping up to our demand? READ MORE. 

Documentary: Genetic Roulette

The Institute for Responsible Technology recently released a new documentary, “Genetic Roulette”. This documentary is available to watch FREE online for the month of October!

“When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. The health of all living things and all future generations were put at risk by an infant technology.

After two decades, 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 improves.

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.”
