In May, more than two million Americans protested against the use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in food supply.
Now investigator Jeffrey Smith reveals the latest information on GMOs, how they impact your health and the health of your children and what you can do to avoid GMOs in your meals with a 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, 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.
The December episodes of Is What You Are Eating, Eating You? include:

According to Gaiam TV, 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.
