2nd Film in Series - Dessert & A Documentary (What is in our Food?)

On Thursday, February 23, 2012 at 7:00 pm at the El Rito Library.  Come join us for a night of desserts and a documentary film titled:

2nd Film Series - "Unnatural Selection" (What is in our foods?)

A failed GM cotton crop prompts farmer suicides in India.  GM pigs are born with ghastly mutations in the US.  Wind borne GM canola threatens farms in Canada, forcing one farmer to the Supreme Count.  A Company breeds giant GM salmon, despite its threat to natural fish populations.  Alarming findings convince a scientist that GMOs may lead to a catastrophe.  And corporations deceive the public, while trying to patent and control the food supply.  By Bertram Verhaag and Gabriele Krober. (60 minutes)

A discussion will follow after the film.

Desserts, popcorn and drinks will be served.  Hope to see you there!

Other upcoming films:

  • Your Milk on Drugs - Just Say No!
  • Don't Put That in Your Mouth
  • Hidden Dangers in Kids' Meals
  • You're Eating What?
