Screening of ‘Genetic Roulette’ at Center for Environment
The Center for the Environment at Catawba College and Bread Riot will host a screening of “Genetic Roulette – The Gamble of Our Lives” followed by a panel discussion and a tasting of local foods at the Center building on Tuesday, November 19.
The film by Jeffrey M. Smith, author of Seeds of Deception, won the Solari Report’s 2012 Movie of the Year award and AwareGuide’s Top Transformational Film of 2012. It reveals evidence that genetically engineered foods contribute to rising disease rates in the U.S. population, especially among children. The movie’s website indicates that “gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases, and infertility are just some of the problems implicated in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat genetically modified soybeans and corn.”
The food tasting will begin at 6 p.m. and the movie will start at 6:45. The event is free but reservations are required. To register, call 704.637.4727 or visit www.CenterForTheEnvironment.org/home.html.
Bread Riot is a local non-profit food advocacy organization dedicated to facilitating a supply of locally produced food utilizing sustainable farming practices.
