Upcoming Event: Movie Screening of Genetic Roulette

Huntsville Vegans is hosting another free monthly movie night/food sharing on Thursday, September 13th, with a screening of Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives (2012). Our monthly movie nights take place on the second Thursday of each month at the Huntsville Public Library (in the auditorium on the ground floor) in Downtown Huntsville. Doors open at six, and we’ll start the movie around 6:30.

Everyone, vegan or not, is welcome to come and enjoy the film. After the movie we’ll have a short discussion about the issues brought up in the film, and our team will take questions from the audience.

Plot summary by the creators of Genetic Roulette:

“Are you and your family on the wrong side of a bet?

When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. The health of all living things and all future generations were put at risk by an infant technology.

After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves.

This seminal documentary provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, especially among children, and offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future.”

We’ll be sharing food at this event as well. Even though this program is presented by Huntsville Vegans, non-vegans are very welcome. That said, we ask that if you bring something to share that it be vegan. If you are not sure about something, please contact us!
