WI - Milwaukee Chapter

Event: Secret Ingredients: Film Screening

August 13, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join the Holistic Moms Network for a screening of SECRET INGREDIENTS. This compelling documentary chronicles the devastating effects that GMOs, Roundup, and other chemicals have on a group of adults and their children. A limited amount of organic samples will be shared. Join us at the Lucile Krug Community Room at the East Branch of the Milwaukee Public Library. Bring your friends!

This thought-provoking film shares true stories of several families facing many chronic medical conditions. We’ll follow each family’s journey and discover why they suffer from numerous ailments. What is exacerbating their autism, asthma, cancer, and infertility? They all independently conclude that the culprits are the hidden ingredients in their food—GMOs, herbicides, and pesticides. Once they change their diets, their health rebounds.

Paraphrasing one reviewer (Kate Bratskeir, Food Editor at Mic.com), “We won’t find all the answers needed in an 80-minute documentary,” but we can at least begin asking certain questions. “Are industry scientists and groups like the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency knowingly leading American consumers to toxic territory?” Also, how can we address how income and access to healthy food may be a challenge in our community?

The Holistic Moms Network is a national non-profit organization with about 100 local chapters across the United States. We provide information and support for people interested in natural living, holistic health, and gentle parenting. Everyone is welcome to attend our monthly meetings to try out one or two events before becoming a member. Our meetings typically fall on the second Thursday of the month. In addition, we host play dates, annual camping trips, clothing & toy swaps, and more. Find more information at www.holisticmoms.org
