Film: "Seeds of Death"
Sunday, August 24, 2 PM, Brooks Room, Deschutes Downtown Library, 601 NW Wall Street, Bend
Every single independent study conducted on the impact of genetically modified food shows that it damages organs, it causes infertility, it causes immune system failure, it causes holes in the GI tract, and it causes multiple organ system failure. Big Ag has built an industrial model which doesn't fit nature, so they’re changing nature by inserting genes of completely different species and tolerance to huge doses of chemical poisons. The film asks the question, should we allow the future of food security to rely on GMOs and Monsanto? 80 minutes. Free showing!
