Genetic Roulette!

Dinner and a movie!  We will be watching an informative film; in addition, we will be having a fun filled pot luck! So feel free to bring your favorite raw vegan dish to share!

We will be be showing an amazing documentary: "Genetic Roulette"! If you have ever wondered what GMO's are, would like to be informed about what the main stream system has been doing with the world's food supply, and how to avoid the dangers associated with GMO's, this is the film to see!

Film Synopsis: When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. The health of all living things and all future generations were put at risk by an infant technology. After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets eating GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves. This seminal documentary provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, especially children, and offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future.

First Timers: We have noticed that many First Timers to the group sign up for a meetup, but don't show up. Many First Timers said that they backed out at the last minute because they were afraid of not knowing what to make for a pot luck or what to bring. That's OK please show up anyway! The journey of one thousand miles begins with a single step. Also this meetup is for you, and it won't do you much good if you are not there; plus it's fun, but beware, if you do come, you just might have the best day ever!

      Food combining is important. Never do sweet fruit or melon with veggies or other types of fruit. Except lettuce or other leaf vegetable . Google food combing .

    Thank you Pam for the SCOBY. For those wondering what SCOBY means? It is an acronym for Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria And Yeast.

    Hi Joseph; Rialto is between Fontana and San Bernardino; it's off the 10 freeway; if you take the Riverside Ave. Exit, and go north about 3 miles, that is about where we are located.
