Most of us suspect Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are not good for us and we don’t want them in our food supply. But that might be all we know. Exactly how do GMOs affect us? To what extent are GMOs already in our food? What can we do to protect ourselves and future generations from GMOs? What can we do now to stop genetic engineering of food? GMO expert Jeffrey Smith can answer these questions.
Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts invites internationally renowned speaker, bestselling author and world’s leading consumer advocate for healthier, non-GMO choices, Jeffrey M. Smith to present “GMOs and Your Health” on Friday, April 20, 6:30 – 8:30 pm in the Community Church of New York’s Assembly Hall.
Jeffrey Smith is Executive Director of the Institute for Responsible Technology and leads the Campaign for Healthier Eating in America, designed to create a tipping point for consumer rejection of GMOs and forcing them out of the market.
In this presentation, we will learn how GMOs:
- Have been linked to thousands of toxic and allergic reactions
- Result in sick, sterile, and dead livestock
- Damage virtually every organ of lab animals.
Scientists who challenge the safety of GMOs have been fired, threatened, and effectively gagged; reporters and critics have been silenced.
In his first book, Seeds of Deception, Jeffrey Smith introduced us to the dangers of GMOs. His second book, Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods, continues documenting health dangers of GMOs and makes a strong case to end genetic engineering of our food.
Smith stresses going beyond understanding the dangers of GMOs by learning to protect ourselves from them, while taking effective steps to eliminate them from our food supply. He has counseled world leaders from every continent, campaigned to end the use of genetically engineered bovine growth hormone, and influenced the first state laws in the United States regulating GMOs.
Jeffrey Smith is a riveting keynote speaker and popular guest on TV shows worldwide. He has lectured in more than 30 countries and has been quoted by government leaders and hundreds of media outlets including, The New York Times, Washington Post, BBC World Service, Nature, The Independent, Daily Telegraph, New Scientist, LA Times, and Time Magazine.
