If you eat food, you should come to this event. Get up-to-date on pending state legislation to require labels on GMO foods and how GMO are an irreversible experiment when Jeffrey M. Smith, the leading spokesperson on the health dangers of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), visits Audubon for a special reception and discussion. Topics will include the health dangers of GMOs, how to avoid them, and most importantly, how we can eliminate GMOs from our food supply – quickly.

* The American Academy of Environmental Medicine now urges all doctors to prescribe diets without any GMO foods.
* Many food companies throughout Europe refuse to use GMOs due to health concerns by consumers.
* Several nations, including many in the European Union, have banned the planting of GMOs.
* Food crops, like soybeans, are engineered to resist herbicides similar to Roundup, and allow herbicide to be used more liberally on farms. People around the globe are protesting the genetic modification of crops due to health concerns and the damages GMOs cause to regular and organic crops.
* The Convention on Biodiversity recognizes that genetic engineering is a threat to the amount and variety of life on the planet.
* This year, GM alfalfa was approved for use. This move is forecasted to pollute the genes non-GM alfalfa seed, a critical resource for grass-fed organic milk, beef and other organic products.
* Former UK environment minister Michael Meacher says the revelations in Jeffrey Smith’s book, Genetic Roulette, may “change the global course of events this century.”

Mr. Smith is the Executive Director of the Institute for Responsible Technology (www.responsibletechnology.org) and his books present evidence linking them to toxic and allergic reactions, sick livestock, and damage to virtually every organ studied in lab animals. In response to this overwhelming evidence, Mr. Smith launched "The Campaign for Healthier Eating in America" - an industry and consumer movement that takes action to remove GMOs from the US food supply.

Space is limited and advance tickets are required. $15 per person in advance online or $25 at the door.
