Monday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Special Guest – Jeffrey Smith!
The leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices, Jeffrey Smith’s meticulous research documents how biotech companies continue to mislead legislators and safety officials to put the health of society at risk and the environment in peril. His work expertly summarizes why the safety assessments conducted by the FDA and regulators worldwide teeter on a foundation of outdated science and false assumptions, and why genetically engineered foods must urgently become our nation’s top food safety priority.
Mr. Smith’s feature-length documentary Genetic Roulette — The Gamble of Our Lives was awarded the 2012 Movie of the Year (Solari Report) and the Transformational Film of the Year (AwareGuide). Seen by millions world-wide, the film links genetically engineered food to toxic and allergic reactions, infertility, digestive disorders, and numerous other problems that have been on the rise in the US population since genetically modified organisms (GMOs) were introduced.
His books include: Seeds of Deception, the world’s bestseller on GMOs; and Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods. They expertly demonstrate why the safety assessments by the FDA and regulators worldwide are based on outdated science and false assumptions, and why genetically engineered foods must urgently become our top food safety priority.
While the debate rages on about GMOs and pesticides, this powerful film by Amy Hart and Jeffrey Smith, shares remarkable stories of people who regain their health after discovering the secret ingredients in their food and making a bold commitment to avoid them.
The secret ingredients in our food may be a lead driver of our obesity, infertility, cancer, digestive problems, autism, brain fog, skin conditions, gluten sensitivity, allergies, fatigue, anxiety, and many other conditions. Meet more than a dozen people whose turned around serious health conditions after adopting a diet that avoids genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and food sprayed with toxic herbicides like Roundup. Learn from leading physicians who say that these are not coincidences. They see illness and recovery like this every day in their practice. And listen to the scientists who explain why. At the heart of the story is Kathleen DiChiara and her family of five who were collectively struggling with 21 chronic diseases. They were like many other families – despite living a healthy lifestyle and making a point to exercise and ‘eat right’ – they were constantly struggling with one condition after another. When Kathleen was faced with a severe health crisis, she became determined to figure out what was causing these conditions. Everything changed when she identified the secret ingredients that were keeping them a perpetual state of illness – and eliminated them from their kitchen. The results were dramatic. Kathleen’s experience is not uncommon.
Jeffrey’s Take: Massive Die off of Birds and Insects Demands We Eat Organic Here is an amazing, incredible and alarming excuse to invest in organic food and it has hardly anything to do with your personal health, immediately. Just life on earth. In the last year, we’ve had two reports suggesting massive damage to our ecosystem, largely because of the pesticides sprayed on our food. In birds – the North American continent has lost nearly 3 billion birds, hundreds of species over the last five decades. They describe it as an overlooked biodiversity crisis – 1 in 4 birds. Now insects, the underappreciated insects that outnumber humans by 17 to one – they’re facing extinction. The insect apocalypse, according to a recent article in the Guardian, poses a risk to all life on earth. The report claims that 400,000 species – not insects, but species – face extinction, amid heavy use of pesticides and they call this an unnoticed insect apocalypse. Now, half of all insects may have been lost since 1970 as a result of the destruction of nature and the heavy use of pesticides according to the report. That 40% of the 1 million known species are facing extinction.
Jeffrey’s Take: Australia Bows to Biotech Industry, Gambles with Our Planet I’m sorry to say that the government of Australia DID NOT vote to protect nature. They did not vote to reverse the policy decision of their regulator, and now allow gene-edited animals, plants, and microorganisms to be introduced on that continent without any government oversight or notification. This is a catastrophe. This quiet, under the radar vote could become one of the most significant moments of our time, especially if worst-case scenarios start to unfold. We talked about this in a previous news analysis – how bacteria released in one location could render soil infertile, could change weather patterns. We had two examples of that. We had the experience – the discussion of hornless cattle. How the supposedly safe gene – and perfect gene-edited hornless cattle turned out to have bacteria mixed into every cell. In the gene of every cell, there were antibiotic-resistant genes that could create antibiotic-resistant diseases. We have so much evidence that gene editing is dangerous and that in fact, it’s most common result is surprising side effects. This is incredibly irresponsible and dangerous by the Australian government.
Bayer says U.S. glyphosate plaintiffs more than double Germany’s Bayer is now facing 42,700 U.S. plaintiffs blaming its glyphosate-based weedkillers for their cancer, more than twice the tally in July and potentially raising any future settlement. Bayer, the inventor of aspirin and owner of Yasmin birth control and Claritin allergy relief brands, is widely expected to eventually buy itself out of the litigation, with analysts currently estimating the size of a future settlement at $8-$12 billion. It put the increase in claims down to a significant increase in plaintiff-side television advertising spending. “The number of lawsuits, first and foremost, doesn’t tell us anything about their merits,” Chief Executive Werner Baumann said in a media call. “The number of the lawsuits in no way, shape or form is indicative of the amount of the settlement.”

Sometimes Food Is The Best Medicine As a physician, I regularly write prescriptions for medications to help my patients get better. But can I write a prescription for food? This may sound like a strange question, but a survey of doctors found that most wished they could write prescriptions for nutritious foods. Those doctors are aware of what a growing body of evidence shows: access to nutritious foods plays an outsize role in wellness. I began to think about the relationship between food and health when I was a resident working in a busy Boston hospital. A patient I’ll call Ted came into the emergency room seeking treatment for vague symptoms that didn’t seem to add up to any specific diagnosis. I grabbed a chair and talked to Ted for a few minutes, and eventually he came to trust me. “Doc,” Ted finally confessed, “I’m tired and I need a meal.”
