The trailer above is from the amazing and life-changing expose about genetically modified (GM) foods from The Institute for Responsible Technology: Genetic Roulette.
We first watched Genetic Roulette a few weeks ago, when it was available for free online. Now it is free again — but only through
tomorrow, the 17th of October, 2012 the end of the month (10/31/2012). This is a must watch movie.
You. Must. Watch.
Think you know all about genetically modified foods? Some of the evidence and information in this film will probably surprise you — maybe scare you.
You’ll hear the serious threats to your health from consuming genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
You’ll discover why genetically engineered foods are a major contributor to rising disease rates in the United States in both people and and animals — including gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases, and infertility.
You’ll be renewed in your dislike for corporations like Monsanto, who actively hide evidence of these dangers and collaborate with the FDA to shove the dangers under the rug.
Here’s more about the film from its makers:
Are you and your family on the wrong side of a bet?
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.
Sadly, some people don’t know they’re eating GMOs, why they shouldn’t, or even what to do about it once they find out.
In fact, here’s another video that shows how some Whole Foods staff members are badly misinformed about GMOs in our foods — people you think would know the difference! (Sadly, the video also shows that Whole Foods isn’t interested in perfect honesty when it comes to GMOs.)
This is the kind of information that needs to get out there. So we can protect ourselves — and fight back.
Here’s How to Fight Back
If you live in California, you can fight back by voting YES! on Proposition 37 — the ballot initiative that requires food companies to label GMO foods. If a food contains GMOs, then the label should say so. (Pretty simple, right?)
Anyone, anywhere can fight back (as my family is doing) by not eating GMO foods — nor feeding them to livestock and pets.
Anyone, anywhere can fight back by encouraging others to watch the Genetic Roulette movie. You’ve got four choices:
- Refer friends and family to the website to watch it free through October 31st, 2012.
- Refer friends and family to the website to watch it for a minimum donation of $2.99 (when it is no longer free).
- Buy a DVD to pass around to friends and family (we bought two for this purpose).
- Buy a DVD to give away (we bought two more for this purpose… see below).
As I just mentioned, we purchased four copies of the DVD. We plan to keep two, passing them around to friends and family. Like a personal lending library.
The other two we purchased to give away right here on this blog.
Giveaway: Genetic Roulette Movie
We’re giving away two copies of the Genetic Roulette movie. This giveaway is entirely sponsored by GNOWFGLINS, and open to anyone anywhere. However, the DVDs are in the NTSC format, so depending on where you live, you may have to watch on a computer instead of with a DVD player.
There are three ways to enter.
First (mandatory), leave a comment below sharing what you personally (just you, or you and your family) are going to do about GMOs. Here are just a few examples of how simple or specific your declaration can be:
“I’m going to watch the Genetic Roulette movie to learn more about this issue.”
“My family and I are not going to eat any GM foods.”
“I’m going to stop feeding genetically modified feed to our livestock.”
“I’m going to buy a copy of the Genetic Roulette DVD to share with friends and family.”
Second (optional), like the GNOWFGLINS page on Facebook.
Use the widget below to record each entry. If you neglect to fill out the widget, you won’t be entered. The widget makes it MUCH easier for me to select winners!
This giveaway begins today and ends next Monday, October 22, 2012 at midnight. I hope to announce the winners on Tuesday, October 23, 2012.
Fine print: GNOWFGLINS receives no compensation of any kind for sponsoring this giveaway. We are sponsoring this one ourselves, because we really want you and others to hear about the dangers of GMOs.
