PAST: FILM: Learn more about GMOs at this Special Friday Night BloomScreen! "Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives" this FRI, May 17th from 7:00pm - 9:00pm at BloomBars in Columbia Heights, All ages, by donation
BloomScreen has arranged for a special screening of "Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives" (2012, 85 min), by Jeffrey M. Smith, this Friday night - before the March Against Monsanto, which will take place in DC on Saturday, May 25th at 2:00pm. The film, meant to educate people about GMOs, will be followed by a discussion with Emilianne Slaydon of GMO Free DC.
About the film: "When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. Never-before-seen-evidence points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the US population. Monsanto’s strong arm tactics, the FDA’s fraudulent policies, and how the USDA ignores a growing health emergency are also laid bare. This sometimes shocking film may change your diet and accelerate the consumer tipping point against GMO foods."
