This Month's Highlight:

If you're interested in the controversy over GMOs you might be interested in:

This Month's Highlighted Book at the MCMC PLanetree Health Resource Library Genetic Roulette. (DVD)
By Jeffrey M. Smith.
Review: The movie starts by examining the increase in chronic illness over the past decade, speculating on possible causes. The narrator notes how food allergies, asthma, autism, digestive and autoimmune problems have increased dramatically as genetically modified food items have become more prevalent in the marketplace.

Whatever your opinion about genetically modified foods, this movie is a must see for anyone who eats. It is our right to know what we are putting in our mouths. This movie serves as a wake up call, informing consumers of important scientific findings and urging us all to take an active role in defending our food supply and, ultimately, our own health.
