GMO OMG TO SCREEN AT THE SHOWROOM CINEMA ON SUNDAY (11/17)

Most of us hopefully know what a GMO is at this point. If you have no clue what I’m talking about put down the McDonald’s hamburger and wake the hell up

If you’re completely ignorant, don’t feel too bad. Most of America is! You’re what we call sheep; just grazing through life, following the herd, and barely capable of taking your head away from the TV for more than 5 minutes to see all the bullshit that’s happening in front of your face.

So allow me to give you a quick lesson. Here’s what a GMO is in a nutshell according to the NON GMO PROJECT:

GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms, ” are plants or animals created through the gene splicing techniques of biotechnology (also called genetic engineering, or GE). This experimental technology merges DNA from different species, creating unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding.

That’s right! Pretty much everything you eat, unless organic, is some form of mutated piece of garbage made in a lab somewhere with a guy or gal in a white coat and called a GMO. And virtually all commercially sold food products are not labeled as to whether or not they contain GMOs (even though most of them do). Pretty screwed up right? If you are one of the sheep, you have no idea you’re eating this stuff because they don’t label it. And why don’t they label it if its totally ok for you to consume? I guess that answer is self-explanatory

Huge food conglomerates like Monsanto control the seed market (as well as politicians) and thus the entire food supply. That is of course with the exception of the organic food industry which Monsanto is actively trying to destroy by taking small organic farmers to court claiming patent infringement on their seeds. Did I mention Monsanto, the company that controls much of the world’s food supply, started out in the pesticide business? Oh yeah, they give shit loads of money to politicians and lobbyists who pass laws to protect them from being responsible for their own products, many of which have been linked to cancer. That’s right, much of the GMO food produced (and that you eat) has been linked to cancer and all kinds of other diseases. Maybe that’s why we’re so fat and unhealthy in this country. And precisely the reason why they refuse to put labels on food products. It all makes sense now right?

So you can see that this is a major issue, one which you should be outraged about. If you’re already aware of all of this, pat yourself on the back. If this is the first time you’re hearing about all this GMO stuff, you’re welcome.

You can learn more about the GMO mess by watching the documentary GMO OMG this Sunday, November 17th at The Showroom in Asbury Park at 2:00PM and 4:30PM. I’m sure the Giants and Jets won’t mind if you miss the game. You’re life depends on it. If you’re one of those sheep who can’t miss the big game, there’s a showing at 7:30PM on Tuesday, November 26th. But then again, if you’re the obsessed football type who screams and yells at the TV and wears you’re favorite team’s jersey on game day, you could probably give two shits about this in the first place.

Here’s what the film is about:

GMO OMG director and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself; is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? These and other questions take Seifert on a journey from his family’s table in California to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected. Along the way we gain insight into a question that is of growing concern to citizens the world over: what’s on your plate?

GMO OMG gets a limited screening at the ShowRoom (707 Cookman Ave). Dean’s Natural Food Market of Ocean Township and Shrewsbury will provide organic snacks and hors d’ouevres. Tickets are $10, grab yours at www.theshowroomap.com.
