BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For more than two decades, many Americans have been unwittingly eating foods that are not natural at the cellular level; products that are Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), but not labeled as such. A growing number of scientists and physicians believe a rise in illness can be directly linked to this controversial agribusiness practice.
"We pride ourselves on providing programming that educates our viewers. In the case of GMOs, Gaiam TV viewers need to be aware of what is being done to the food without their knowledge so they can make up their own minds when feeding themselves and their families," said Paul Richardson, Gaiam TV vice president of marketing.
Subscribers to the video streaming service Gaiam TV will have access to numerous special programs throughout the month of December, including the documentary film "Genetic Roulette," the original Gaiam TV series "Secrets to Health," and a new series Is What You Are Eating, Eating You? with host Jeffrey Smith.
There is no current law in the U.S. requiring food producers to label products as GMO, although organic farmers and a growing number of brands are voluntarily letting consumers know their foods are non-GMO.
For a limited time Gaiam TV is offering a free 10-day trial to watch the GMO collection along with the rest of its vast library of videos and movies.
