During the first free showing week in September, there were over 1.25 million views of this astounding documentary featuring testimony from healthcare practitioners, scientists, veterinarians, parents, and others about the health risks of genetically modified foods, and amazing health recoveries from switching to a non-GMO diet.  The response has been incredible!


In the remaining critical days before the election, the vital information in this documentary is extremely important to voters in California who are facing a barrage of misdirection from the biotech industry to influence their choice on Prop 37 for labeling of GMO food.


Please don’t miss this opportunity to share this potentially life-saving message.  The Tipping Point of consumer rejection of dangerous genetically modified foods is within reach.  Please help.  Share now!


 “It is in fact one of the most important stories ever told.”
John Robbins, Bestselling author of Diet for a New America and Food Revolution


“GENETIC ROULETTE unveils a world most of us have never seen. It raises alarming questions about GMOs, and we deserve answers. For all that you love, hear this message and act now.”
— Frances Moore Lappé, author of Diet for a Small Planet and EcoMind


Some comments from viewers:


“This is one of the most comprehensive documentaries done on genetically engineered foods and their effect on the health of the human population. If you are a parent, a grandparent or if you are just curious about why all the discussion about food safety, this is the film to watch.”

“This movie shows absolutely horrifying facts that cannot be ignored!!!”

“I am so happy to see this documentary being made, to spread the word, because everyone has a right to know how they have been part of a science experiment. Thank you.”

“Genetic Roulette is packed with information. If you didn’t understand the GMO controversy before watching this, you will be a well-informed consumer after you finish watching. Thanks to all the participants for so honestly conveying the message of the dangers of GMO’s.”

Dr. Oz Endorses GMO Labeling

Propels Issue Onto National Stage During Election Season, Momentum Mounts for Consumers’ Right to Know,

Published: Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012 – 11:38 am

WASHINGTON, Oct. 17, 2012 — /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Dr. Mehmet Oz, the host of the nationally syndicated TV program, The Dr. Oz Show, today endorsed genetically engineered (GE) food labeling, a fundamental right already in place in 50 countries around the world, including all of Europe, Japan, India and China.

“Right now we have no way of knowing which foods have been genetically modified.  I believe you should have that right,” said Dr. Oz, at the conclusion of the segment, titled GMO Foods: Are They Dangerous to Your Health?  “I prefer to be cautious.”

Framed as a debate, the show featured Gary Hirshberg, chair of Just Label It, the national coalition for GE food labeling.  Hirshberg noted, “Americans deserve this basic right to know.  People should have the information they need to make an informed decision about the food they eat and feed their families. Americans should not be kept in the dark.”

Joining Hirshberg in support of labeling were Dr. Robin Bernhoft, American Academy of Environmental Medicine, and Jeffrey Smith, Institute for Responsible Technology. Representing the opposing view were two scientists from the University of California.

“Dr. Oz’s leadership and courage need to be acknowledged,” Hirshberg added. “In speaking out in support of our right to know, and in recognizing the need for labeling, Dr. Oz has gone far beyond the American Medical Association and other American health care organizations. He has forged the path forward for the entire medical community to support this common-sense measure for American consumers.”

Hirshberg noted that momentum is mounting nationwide for greater transparency in our food — from California, where Prop 37 is on the November ballot, to Washington D.C, where Just Label It is building upon the comments from 1.2 million Americans to the FDA in support of mandatory federal GMO labeling.  “This all points to one simple message: Americans want the right to know what is in our food,” said Hirshberg.

About Just Label It JUST LABEL IT (JLI) is a national coalition of more than 600 diverse organizations dedicated to the mandatory federal labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods, also referred to as genetically modified, or GMOs.  For updated information, visit the Just Label It website, (, or visit Just Label It on Facebook or Twitter.

Are GMOs Increasing the Incidence of Gluten Sensitivities?

I had the honor of interviewing author and GMO expert, Jeffrey Smith, at the recent Seeds of Doubt Conference in LA. We had a lively discussion on how the consumption of genetically engineered foods may be contributing to the rise in gluten sensitivities. Jeffrey shared some amazing facts on how GM foods increase leaky gut, decrease nutrient content, cause bacterial imbalances, interfere with normal digestion, and increase allergenic response.

Topics of discussion included:

1. Bt toxin found in GM Bt Corn (non-organic corn chips, tortillas, cornstarch, etc.) and Cotton (cottonseed oil in processed foods) crops can poke holes in the intestines of animals and humans leading to a leaky gut. Bt Toxin has now been found in the blood of 93% of pregnant women and 80% of their offspring in a recent study in Quebec.

2. Roundup use has increased 527 million pounds since 1996 mainly due to the introduction of Roundup-ready GM crops (soy, cotton, canola, sugar beets, corn). Roundup is a potent mineral chelator and antibiotic. Mineral deficiencies such as manganese, zinc, iron, magnesium, iodine, cobalt (think vitamin B12 or cyanocobalamin) have been found in plants and the animals who eat them. The use of Roundup contributes to intestinal imbalances of bacterium in animals and in the soil leading to an increased susceptibility to disease for both animals and plants. Recent research is pointing to bacterial imbalances in people with Celiac Disease; and mineral insufficiencies are commonly associated with immune imbalances.

3. An increase in allergies and allergenic reactions have been documented with the use of GM crops.

For more information on genetically modified foods and your health please watch Jeffrey’s latest movie, Genetic Roulette (available online), or visit his site, The Institute for Responsible Technology.

This film may change your diet, protect you and your family, and accelerate the consumer tipping point against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) already underway.

Never-before-seen evidence points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the US population, especially among children. Gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases, and infertility are just some of the problems implicated in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat genetically modified soybeans and corn.

Monsanto’s strong arm tactics, the FDA’s fraudulent policies, and how the USDA ignores a growing health emergency are also laid bare.

Don’t miss it!
