EP73: The Truth About GMO’s with Jeffrey Smith

Here's what's really going on with GMOs


In case you're not yet familiar, Jeffrey Smith is the leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices. His meticulous research documents how biotech companies continue to mislead legislators and safety officials to put the health of society at risk and the environment in peril.

His feature-length documentary Genetic Roulette — The Gamble of Our Lives was awarded the 2012 Movie of the Year (Solari Report) and the Transformational Film of the Year (AwareGuide) and is considered the authoritative work on GMO health dangers. You may have read about him in The New York Times, New Scientist, and Time Magazine or seen him on the BBC, NPR, Fox News, Democracy Now, and the Dr. Oz Show.
