ABOUT JEFFREY SMITH
Jeffrey was the architect of a successful plan to achieve the tipping point of consumer rejection of genetically engineered foods. The majority of Americans now understand that GMOs are unsafe, and the food industry is responding by removing them.
His global bestseller, Seeds of Deception, ignited the anti-GMO movement by exposing industry and government lies about GMO safety. In the book Genetic Roulette, he organized the science behind GMO health risks in a unique, easy-to-digest format, prompting one reviewer to write, “Smith has to be the best science communicator alive today.”
Over more than two decades, Jeffrey gave 1,000 lectures and 1,000 interviews in 45 countries, trained 1,500 speakers, organized over 10,000 grassroots activists, and appeared in top news outlets including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Time Magazine, The Doctors, and The Dr. Oz Show. He introduced the science on GMOs to medical communities worldwide, inspiring thousands of practitioners to prescribe non-GMO and organic diets. Many of them recommend his most recent documentary, Secret Ingredients, (co-directed with Amy Hart) which features emotional stories of families who recover from serious diseases after switching to organic food. The film links GMOs and Roundup herbicide to cancer, infertility, autism, Alzheimer’s, allergies, skin conditions, digestive disorders, and other health conditions, and motivates viewers to increase their commitment to organic.
Jeffrey is the founding executive director of the Institute for Responsible Technology, and the creator of the Healing from GMOs and Roundup summit, the 90 Day Lifestyle Upgrade, GMO Speaker Training, and the upcoming Degree in GMOs. He is sought after as an inspirational keynote speaker and interviewer, and hosts the Live Healthy Be Well podcast.
Jeffrey has received numerous awards including “Person of the Year” (Masters of Health Magazine), “Lifetime Achievement Award” (TTAC), “Activist Award” (Weston A Price Foundation), “Environmental Medicine Award” (AAEM), “Humanitarian Award” (Mankind Project), and his film Genetic Roulette was awarded Movie of the Year (Solari Report), and Transformational Film of the Year (AwareGuide).
A meditator since 1975, Jeffrey values the growth of individual and collective consciousness as fundamental to uplifting the human condition. He encourages people to step into their inner superhero, and likes to say: “THINK HUGE…Thinking ‘big’ is so last century.”
Protect Nature’s Gene Pool
Jeffrey is preparing to launch a new worldwide movement to counter the existential threat posed by gene edited organisms—if released in large numbers, they could irreversibly replace nature with a corrupted gene pool.
A Magnificent New Normal
Based on the way systems and society transform, Jeffrey believes our emergence from the disruptive pandemic shut down presents an unprecedented opportunity to positively impact humanity for generations to come. He is therefore assembling top thought leaders to provide timely inspiration and guidance as part of a global online program called A Magnificent New Normal.
