New Film Shares Stories of Hope and Healing




A new feature-length documentary, Secret Ingredients, makes a compelling case for why organic foods may be the key to unlocking better health and reversing chronic illnesses ranging from asthma to autism. The film shares the uplifting stories of individuals and families that overcame their struggles with digestive problems, allergies, skin conditions and infertility after eliminating genetically modified (GMO) crops and agricultural toxins from their diets.

“This gives tremendous hope for those suffering from chronic disorders in that simply switching to an organic diet may improve their quality of life,” says Jeffrey Smith, who produced and co-directed the film with award-winning filmmaker Amy Hart. “We hope the film will create an organized tsunami driving millions of people to better living through healthy eating.”

Secret Ingredients includes testimonies from physicians and scientists that explain how GMOs, Monsanto’s ubiquitous Roundup herbicide and other pesticides can disrupt our biological systems and compromise our health. “More than 200 studies show the links between GMOs and poor health,” says Smith, “while Roundup and other toxic applications have been proven to damage mitochondria, disrupt the gut biome, throw off hormones, and promote tumors and birth defects.”

The film builds on the groundbreaking research that went into Smith’s prior feature-length documentary Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives, which looked at genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the U.S.
