California Right to Know Campaign invites you to experience a controversial, intriguing, and provocative movie--Scientists Under Attack--followed by discussion with Dr. Michelle Perro. The film reveals how the biotech industry has repeatedly blocked the original research conducted by world class scientists (including the likes of Arpad Pusztai and Ignacio Chapela) with gag orders, personal smear campaigns and even destruction of data. Following the film, Dr. Michelle Perro (Integrative Pediatrician from SF/Marin) will lead a question and answer session and discuss the relationship between the introduction of Genetically Engineered foods into the American diet and the emerging epidemic of digestive, immunologic, and neurologic changes in children's health. Information on what you can do to support YES on Prop 37 and get genetically engineered foods labeled will be provided. Come find out more about Prop 37!

Dr. Michelle Perro, is a physician at Integrative Medicine's Institute for Health and Healing in San Francisco. She has a 27 year career in pediatrics and sits on the board of a California environmental group working to reduce chemical toxicity in children and families.
