Recorded in Yelm, WA on September 15, 2012. Presented by the South Sound Seed Stewards and the Yelm Cooperative.
Sandra's (last name withheld by request) presentation is based on the book and DVD, "Genetic Roulette," written by Jeffrey M. Smith and presented by the Institute of Responsible Technology.
Synopsis of "Genetic Roulette:" 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.
