In September, our group got together at our regular spot at Nature Friends Clubhouse in Sierra Madre. Announcements and introductions were short, as we had a film on our agenda. In keeping with the politics of the day,15-20 of us enjoyed our potluck dinner upstairs while we watched Jeffrey Smith’s new documentary, “Genetic Roulette.” Based on his book of the same name, and produced by the Institute for Responsible Technology, this film provides all kinds of evidence for the detrimental effects of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).
At the end of the film, I encouraged everyone to order a copy and show it to their friends. If each of us show the film to just a few of our friends and associates, we could all make a difference in getting GMOs labeled once and for all. With less than 2 months until the vote on Proposition 37, we need to get the word out.
For more information about the film, or to order a copy, go to: http://www.responsibletechnology.org/.
To read a couple positive reviews of the film, go to:
And if you can find any negative reviews of the film that are not written by anyone affiliated with or influenced by Montsanto or any biotech companies, please let me know! I highly doubt you’ll find one!
Best wishes avoiding GMOs and spreading the word to everyone you know who plans to vote in the California elections this November.
