GMO Free Lancaster County to discuss health risks

Are you curious about the health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) foods? GMO Free Lancaster County will hold a free educational seminar tonight at 6:30 p.m.

Emily Givler, the organization’s resident pediatric nutrition consultant, will discuss the health effects of GMOs, according to Zoe Swartz, organizer with the GMO Free Lancaster County.

Some common medical complaints associated with GMO crops are increased allergies, increased toxicity, a lower nutritional value of food, and an increased resistance to antibiotics. Since Monsanto began experimenting and genetically engineering (GE) our foods, there has been an increase in autism, diabetes and other health factors. None of these foods are even labeled to help consumers make an informed choice.

The meeting will be held at the Ephrata Public Library. The Library is located at 550 South Reading Road, Ephrata. From Lancaster City (or other points south), follow Route 272 (Oregon Pike) north. The Library is located just passed the Wawa as you come into Ephrata.
