Is What You Are Eating, Eating You?
A NEWS SERIES ON GMO'S WITH JEFFREY SMITH ON GAIAM TV
BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 16, 2013
BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --In May more than two million
Americans protested against the use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)
in our food supply. Now investigator Jeffrey Smith reveals the latest
information on GMOs, how they impact our health and the health of our children
and what you can do to avoid GMOs in your meals with a groundbreaking new show
on Gaiam TV, Is what You Are Eating, Eating You?
"Parents are becoming more aware…children may be susceptible to the impact of
GMOs…families lives have been changed dramatically." said Jeffrey Smith,
executive director of the Institute for Responsible Technology.
In this new show, only available on Gaiam TV, viewers will learn about how
some GMO plants become herbicide resistant so the herbicide Roundup® will not
kill the plants. Other plants are genetically modified to produce toxins that
break open holes in the stomachs of insects, which leads to questions of
whether this effect may also happen in humans. There is no long term data on
the impact of GMOs on humans or animals. Leading to the question why last year
there were less than 3 dozen independent studies on GMOs which are being
consumed by millions of people worldwide.
"The program investigates the role of GMOs for widespread occurrences of
digestion dysfunction, immune dysfunction and fertility dysfunction. It is
important for Gaiam TV to educate the public on issues which can seriously
impact our viewers and their families," said Paul Richardson, Gaiam TV vice
president of marketing.
In December episodes of Is What You Are Eating, Eating You? Include:
Episode 1: What are GMOs?
Episode 2: What do GMOs do to our health?
Episode 3: Avoiding GMOs
There is no current law in the U.S. requiring food producers to label products
as GMO, although organic farmers and a growing number of brands are
voluntarily letting consumers know their foods are non-GMO. GMO labeling is
currently required in 64 other countries around the globe.
