Story at-a-glance

  • The health dangers of genetically engineered (GE) foods are masterfully presented in this documentary by Jeffrey Smith, one of the world’s leading authorities on GE foods
  • Americans get sick more often than Europeans or people from any other industrialized nation, and scientific evidence suggests a significant factor may be the genetic engineering of our food supply
  • Despite claims by government regulators and the food industry that GE foods are safe, scientific studies continue to show the opposite; GE foods have been linked with allergies, reproductive problems and infertility, birth defects, bizarre mutations, cancer, and now an unidentified mystery organism causing an epidemic of livestock deaths, “Sudden Death Syndrome”
  • GE foods trigger immune attack because they appear to your body as foreign invaders rather than food; this immune response can lead to chronic inflammation, which in turn raises your risk for multiple additional health problems
  • The two main types of GE foods are herbicide-tolerant crops and pesticide-producing crops; both are imprecise processes that are riddled with unexpected consequences, such as hundreds to thousands of genetic mutations that have unknown effects on human health
