Meet Jeffrey Smith

Jeffrey Smith delivers transformational communication on a global scale. A bestselling author, award-winning filmmaker, celebrated public speaker, and penetrating interviewer, his work has influenced the behavior and health of millions of people worldwide.

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 25 years, 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 TimesThe Washington PostTime MagazineThe 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 founder of the Protect Nature Now movement to safeguard the global microbiome. He is the creator of the Healing from GMOs and Roundup summit, the 90 Day Lifestyle UpgradeGMO Speaker Training, and A Magnificent New Normal.  Jeffrey is sought after as an inspirational keynote speaker and hosts the Live Healthy Be Well podcast.

His numerous awards include “Person of the Year” (Masters of Health Magazine) and “Environmental Medicine Award” (American Academy of Environmental Medicine). 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.”
