GMOs - Genetic Roulette


Companies making Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are literally playing “Genetic Roulette” with the future of our food. In our last post, we looked at some disturbing new research on GMOs. Long time readers of this blog may remember that this is not the first time we’ve discussed the controversial issue of Genetically Modified foods. In October of last year, we looked at what it means when a food or plant is Genetically Modified and we discussed in detail the potential risks associated with this very new technology. A new documentary and an upcoming conference discuss the important scientific research regarding this topic.

The Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT) recently released a new documentary explaining in detail the key concerns regarding the safety of GMOs that you might want to understand before you eat your next tortilla chip or eat any more tofu. Below is a trailer for the documentary, which can be viewed in its entirety at the "Genetic Roulette: The Movie" website.

Also, if you want to explore this topic in greater detail and learn all about some of the research concerning GMOs, the second annual Seeds of Doubt Conference is taking place this coming weekend (October 6, 2012) in Los Angeles.
