Although these are not the same PowerPoint presentations that Jeffrey Smith uses in his talks on GMO health risks, they contain much of the same content.
The complete version is quite long so, if you want, you can select the material to fit your desired length. Study the Complete Script and refer to it during your presentation, based on the slides you choose, or use it to supplement the scripts embedded in the shorter versions. The Word document is handy if you want to edit the script and/or change the order of slides.
Please note: The script is also embedded in the PowerPoint document. Using PowerPoint’s Normal setting under the View menu, the notes should appear under each slide. (Shorten the slide window from the bottom if the notes are not visible.) Alternatively, choose the Notes Page under the View menu to see each slide and its corresponding script.
Give It a Try
Don’t feel you need to be an expert in order to give these scripted PowerPoint presentations. If audience questions arise that you cannot answer, refer them to Genetic Roulette or email our Institute for Responsible Technology with the question. We will post answers for everyone. Some citations are listed in the script; more references and explanations are found in the source books Genetic Roulette and Seeds of Deception.
Content of the Presentation
Health Risks of GMOs: This section highlights many of the adverse findings revealed through laboratory experiments and reported by farmers, doctors, and investigators. It also introduces some theoretical risks based on the current state of the science.
The Consumer Tipping Point: The final section includes a discussion of a strategy to achieve the tipping point of consumer rejection of GMOs in the US, which is the basis for our Campaign for Healthier Eating in America. The key elements needed are consumer education on GMO health risks combined with clear non-GMO choices.
