Available now: The new short film, “Don’t Let the Gene Out of the Bottle”

Also available on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram

“I have made this film now, after 25 years as a best-selling author and activist against GMOs, because we are hardwired to have greater ethical concerns for genetically engineering humans and other higher organisms. From a global health and environmental perspective, however, altering microbes is far more dangerous.” -Director, Jeffrey Smith, talking about making his new short film, “Don’t Let the Gene Out of the Bottle”

In just 16 minutes, Don’t Let the Gene Out of the Bottle sounds the alarm on the planet-critical threat of gene-edited microbes and how we can come together, make our voices heard, and demand proper regulation and containment of this nature-bending technology.

IRT’s new Advocacy Platform is unlike anything you’ve seen before and is urgently needed to protect nature from the new existential threats from GMOs 2.0.

Please go to the Advocacy Platform and, in a few clicks, you can:

  • Email all your elected officials (at the federal, state, and local levels)

Don’t Let the Gene Out of the Bottle powerfully conveys the threat to the human and environmental microbiomes as well as the permanent corruption of nature’s gene pool. Yet it inspires hope, revealing viable solutions to protect nature from this gene-altering technology, sometimes referred to as GMO 2.0.

The movie inspires powerful emotions and a desire to take action. It presents real-world examples of lab-enhanced GMOs with the capacity to cause catastrophes such as threatening terrestrial plant life, altering weather patterns, or even creating enhanced viruses far more dangerous than COVID-19.

The film features experts in the field such as Dr. Elaine Ingham, Dr. Jonathan Latham, Claire Robinson, Kiran Krishnan, Jim Thomas and Michelle Perro, M.D.
