‘Genetic Roulette’ examines GMO foods

By From page A4 | October 16, 2012

In anticipation of the Nov. 6 election, when Californians will be voting on Proposition 37, “The California Right To Know Genetically Engineered Food Act” initiative, Big Screen Cinema will screen “Genetic Roulette — the Gamble of Our Lives,” Jeffrey Smith’s new documentary film. It will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, in the Blanchard Room at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St.

“Smith, author of ‘Seeds of Deception,’ exposes the unintended but real health consequences of genetically engineering our food,” says film presenter Rodney Robinson of Davis. “When the U.S. government ignored repeated warnings from its own scientists regarding the need for testing for health consequences and allowed untested genetically modified crops into our food supply and the environment, it was a misguided gamble of unprecedented proportions,” he says.

Admission is free, but donations will be accepted with gratitude.
