Wholistic Healing Book Study
March 20, 7:00 pm; Adult Ed. Room
At our next Wholistic Healing Book Study, Tuesday, March 20, we will view a meticulously documented and thoroughly comprehensive video about genetically modified organisms (GMO) made by the non-profit Institute for Responsible Technology (of Fairfield, IA) with input by more than 30 scientists. "Genetic Roulette" is for anyone wanting to understand GMO technology and learn how to protect their families. We assume the FDA is protecting our health but the truth is that eating genetically modified (GM) food is a gamble that most of us don’t know we are taking. The biotech industry’s claim that genetically modified (GM) foods are safe is shattered in this groundbreaking video. There are dozens of health risks of ingesting commonly eaten GMO foods such as cancer, heart disease, auto-immune diseases, birth defects, autism, infertility, digestive disfunction, obesity, food allergies, and new diseases not seen before. This does not even consider the damage being done to our environment by the chemicals used to grow GM crops which is a big part of the reason our insect population (now down by 50%) has decreased along with our birds and other wildlife. The benefits of buying organic start long before we eat our food.
