Author and documentary filmmaker Jeffrey Smith will be speaking at SUNY New Paltz on April 7 at 7 p.m. in Lecture Center 100 about the dangers of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Smith is one of the world’s leading critics of the controversial practice of genetically modifying plants and animals to foster traits for commercial purposes. His work relies on the latest scientific research to link GMOs to a number of human health ailments, including allergic reactions, infertility, and digestive disorders. He also examines the ecological implications of releasing genetically modified organisms into the environment.
