The biotech industry’s claim that genetically modified (GM) foods are safe is shattered in this ground-breaking book. Sixty-five health risks of the foods that Americans [and others around the world] eat every day are presented in easy-to-read two-page spreads. The left page is designed for the quick scanning reader; it includes bullets, illustrations, and quotes. The right side offers fully referenced text, describing both research studies and theoretical risks. The second half of Genetic Roulette shows how safety assessments on GM crops are not competent to identify the health problems presented in the first half.
This book, prepared in collaboration with a team of international scientists, is for anyone wanting to understand GM technology, to learn how to protect themselves, or to share their concerns with others. It is presented in the clear, accessible style that made Jeffrey Smith’s Seeds of Deception the world’s best-selling book on genetically engineered foods. As the world’s most complete reference on the health risks of GM foods, Genetic Roulette is also ideal for schools and libraries.
Jeffrey Smith raises serious questions concerning the production of genetically modified foods. Based on meticulous research, Genetic Roulette offers a chilling reminder that the effects of GM foods on human health are largely untested. And, whilst we cannot assume that all such foods are dangerous, nor can we assume that they are all safe, especially in the long term. Yet in the US there is no labelling, so these products sneak into households in many different foods. If you care about your health and that of your children, buy this book, become aware of the potential problems, and take action.

The most comprehensive, well-documented, and highly readable exposé on the serious health dangers of GM foods.

Smith has to be the best science communicator alive today, and this book stands as the final word on GM health risks. It’s the definitive answer to those who don’t know, those who don’t want to know, and those who know but don’t want anyone else to know.

I was shocked to learn the extent to which our food supply has been manipulated through genetic engineering, in a manner that is evidently having catastrophic consequences. The release of this film is timely – disease rates are increasing at unprecedented rates and people are asking why. GMO’s affect all of us. Please do yourself a favor and watch this film and then tell everyone about it.
About Genetic Roulette
When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions.
The health of all living things and all future generations were put at risk by an infant technology.
After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves.
Directed by outspoken GMO critic Jeffrey Smith, the film is an unsettling tour through a myriad of serious health conditions implicated with genetically altered crops, from allergies and intestinal disorders to diabetes and autism. Many explanations are offered for how these ailments could potentially arise.
Genetic Roulette provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, but also offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future.
The documentary features commentary from a wide range of eminent physicians, scientists, policy makers and activists.
What You Will Learn
- The serious far reaching threats posed by genetically engineered foods
- Compelling evidence that suggests a link between the consumption of GE Foods and rising disease, illness and allergy rates
- Why GM foods are bad news for you and your family’s health
- The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) policy on genetically engineered foods
- The power and influence of Agribusiness and Chemical companies in deciding what we eat and how they hide the evidence
- Ways that you can help in the fight for healthy food and transparency with food labelling
In exposing the bullying and deceit of of the biotech industry, Jeffrey Smith’s mesmerizing film shines a bright light of hope that we can reclaim our health and our food systems. Meticulously documented, thoroughly comprehensive, and rivetingly presented, this is more than an adventure story with intense drama and high stakes. It is in fact one of the most important stories ever told. Watch it and be galvanized, inspired, and engaged. Then tell everyone you know.
