All persons concerned about rampant and unlabeled use of genetically-engineered chemical ingredients in our food supply are invited to attend the Upstate organizational meeting of the South Carolina Coalition of the Non-GMO Tipping Point Network to be held Thursday evening, Feb. 28, 5:30 p.m., at Greenville Technical College. The meeting will piggyback with the free admission showing of Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives, an award-winning documentary film featuring Jeffrey Smith, founder and director of the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT), exposing the health dangers of most of our processed foods, which typically contain genetically-modified organisms (GMOs).
The film showing is hosted by the Greenville Tech Recycling and Sustainability Coalition and the Greenville Organic Foods Organization and sponsored by Greenville Whole Foods Market, including refreshments. The film will be followed by a discussion about GMOs with guest speaker Sriyani Rajapakse of Greenville Technical College. The presentation will be at Greenville Tech’s Barton Campus, Building 102, at 506 South Pleasantburg Drive, Greenville. You may browse this site for additional details.
The Non-GMO Tipping Point Network (TPN) is the nationwide group sponsored by IRT pressing for the mandatory labeling of GMOs; and moreover, each state is being encouraged to promote mandatory GMO-labeling legislation on the state level, and here in South Carolina, everyone is encouraged to become members of the GMO-Free SC Coalition and support these efforts as well.
