Praise for Genetic Roulette:
“The ability to introduce alien genes into a genome is an impressive technological manipulation but we remain too ignorant of how the genome works to anticipate all of the consequences, subtle or obvious, immediate or long-term, of those manipulations. This movie validates the concerns of biotech critics who warned that our knowledge is too primitive to avoid unexpected and deleterious consequences.”—David Suzuki, geneticist, author of more than 30 books, awarded UNESCO prize for science
“The most comprehensive, well-documented, and highly understandable exposé on the serious health dangers of GM foods.”--Samuel S. Epstein, MD, professor emeritus of Environmental Medicine, University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health and chairman, Cancer Prevention Coalition
