Episode 91: GMO OMG! | Bring this movie to your town | with Carol Blake

GMO OMG! Film by Jeremy Seiffert

GMO OMG director and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? These and other questions take Seifert on a journey from his family’s table to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected. Along the way we gain insight into a question that is of growing concern to citizens the world over: what’s on your plate?

Learn about the D.A.R.K (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act and how it affects the food you eat, what you can do about it and how to bring the movie GMO OMG! to your local theater. www.organicgardenerpodcast.com
