Secret Ingredients Community Screening
January 26 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
This riveting documentary airs the dirty secret that major companies have purposely hidden over the decades: that GMOs and pesticides like Roundup in our food may be one of the biggest drivers of disease.
Jeffrey Smith, the global spokesperson on the health dangers of genetically engineered foods, teamed up with award-winning filmmaker Amy Hart, to create this life-changing film. SECRET INGREDIENTS shares the heartwrenching stories of people suffering from numerous disorders, from cancer to infertility, brain fog to skin rashes. The film chronicles their journeys from tears of sadness to joy as life-limiting medical problems dissolve after they discover a simple way to regain health by eating organic food, free from GMOs, Roundup herbicide, and other synthetic toxins.
SECRET INGREDIENTS is a must-see for anyone who has or knows of a wide range of deleterious medical conditions that could be attributable to these chemicals. This documentary is so explosive that the top five chemical manufacturers as well as the FDA, USDA, and the EPA declined to be interviewed. It is a game changer for the public and potentially a life-saver.
The 80 minute film is followed by a conversation with filmmaker, Jeffrey Smith and chef & food activist Bhavani Jaroff. Come prepared to ask questions and share your own story.
