What: Screening of “Genetic Roulette.”
When: 1-4:30 p.m.
Where: Rochambeau Public Library, 708 Hope St., Providence.
About: The film points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the U.S. population, especially among children. Gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases and infertility are just some of the problems implicated in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat genetically modified soybeans and corn. Following the film, a discussion will be led by Liberty Goodwin, director of the Toxics Information Project, and Amanda Freitas, interim policy coordinator for the Northeast Organic Farmers Association's Rhode Island chapter.
