5.0 out of 5 stars A wake up call Jan. 25 2009
This documentary really made me realize just how dangerous genetically engineered foods can be, especially the terminator gene, which causes a plant to comit suicide. I had never realized that gene could transfer in to non-GE crops and literally destroy our food sources. Scary stuff. Since watching this movie I have began writing anyone who is relavent in the fight against GE foods.

5.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining eye-opener July 2 2011
This movie is quite the eye opener to the ugly business side of our food. The documentary does a pretty good job of exploring different aspects of genetically modified foods and what they could mean for future generations. Most importantly, regardless of weather you agree with the movies message (that genetically modified foods, and the business behind them are dangerous) or not, I found this movie completely entertaining!

5.0 out of 5 stars A real eye-opener Feb. 8 2009
This documentary opened my eyes to the horrors involved with GMO and GMO corporations. It is a must see for anyone who is still eating conventional foods, as they have no idea what kind of repercussions their food choices can make. See this!

This is a stunning film. Where it discusses terminator technology, it reduced me to tears. The future of food is most definitely in question and each of us needs to be concerned. A most compelling documentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Important information for everyone April 27 2008
By Sheri Fogarty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Future of Food documents what is currently going on with the food supply in the US. Monsanto, a multinational corporation who was formerly in the pesticide business (agent orange, ddt) is now one of the biggest seed suppliers in the world. And not just any seed, it's genetically engineered for a number of purposes.

Monsanto has been suing farmers who have not bought seed from them but end up with it growing in their fields from no fault of their own. In one very well known case a farmer, Percy Schmeiser, was told by his neighbor that the neighbor's truck had a hole it's tarp and a lot of Monsanto's' 'round up ready' seed was dumped on his field. Monsanto tried to sue him (and many other farmers - google and you'll see links to many of the cases) and he spent his life savings fighting them. He just recently won his case after 10 years!

The film has wonderful and informative interviews with Andrew Kimbrell, director of the center for Food Safety, Fred Kirshenman, a well known sustainable farmer, and a number of experts and scientists who document first off how GE food was pushed on the American people with no disclosure and no testing as well as the devastating potential for destruction with messing with our food supply for profit.

There's a lot we can do. Support small farmers and farmers market's. Join a community supported agriculture program where you get a box of fresh from the field organic fruits and vegetables each week. We also need to demand labeling. Right now we don't know which foods we buy are genetically altered and which aren't. If our food is labeled we can make informed choices.

I highly recommend this film - it's important information for us all.

5.0 out of 5 stars What America Eats - GMO Jan. 28 2008
By E-Consumer - Published on Amazon.com
Informative documentary about our food supply. Includes information about the Genetically Modified food industry, and farmers who try to resist GMO and get sued by corporations. A different DVD which shows the destructive nature of GMO / chemical farming on both the farmers and the soil, ...and shows an active solution taking place in India is "How to Save the World". Watch "The Future of Food" first, and then the enlightening "How to Save the World", for a incredible real world solution that is happening now. Both are entertaining and can educate you on what is really happening to food and farmers in the USA and other countries!

5.0 out of 5 stars THAT'S IT!!! Dec 21 2005
By Francois-hugues - Published on Amazon.com
A MUST-SEE! Thank you to Ms Garcia! This is the VERY BEST, most informative and well-done documentary on the matter. The essential is summarized in one place: a DVD that is real easy to follow. It is quite comprehensive. Some very strong reports/interviews from well-known scientists, and testimonials from genuine farmers. Also all the animations are excellent. And the photography is in many places beautiful (especially the part filmed in Mexico). On the top of that, it is also the best documentary I've ever seen, flowing along an amazingly informative path. I highly recommend it for a) those who know about this matter, and b) those who don't know yet about it :~]

5.0 out of 5 stars What are People Thinking? Dec 15 2005
By Paul b - Published on Amazon.com
If you live in the US and eat food, you have to see this. If you are not familiar with GM(genetically modified) foods or do not intentionally avoid GM foods, you are probably consuming them. Soy, corn and canola are the main crops being manipulated by the "White Coats".

Deborah Garcia(widow of Jerry Garcia) shows what is going on in the Corporate agriculture world. There must come a point where man says "Haven't we screwed things up enough, is profit more important than what is right and just?"

The corruption that is engulfing the whole agriculture community is unreal. If grown properly and organically there should be no need for fertilizers and pesticides. If the soil is mineral rich than crops should grow unhindered. Read "One Straw Revolution" by Masanobu Fukoka, if you can get your hands on a copy. He explanes thoroughly how to grow crops naturally with as little human intervention as possible.

Thank you Ms Garcia for this enlightening documentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars What happens when food is being "engineered" Feb. 13 2009
By Guy Denutte - Published on Amazon.com
Monsanto achieved in 1992 that the FDA approved genetically modified foods considering them to be "generally regarded as safe" (GRAS). This is total nonsense. In the first place, you cannot regard genetically modified food as "substantially equivalent" to natural food, for the simple reason that in nature the exchange of genes between different species is impossible. In the second place, genetically modified food IS dangerous. The scientific investigation of Dr. Arpad Pusztai on Monsanto-potatoes produced serious harm to rats. Since this study was financed by Monsanto, he got fired within hours. Genetically modified foods are prohibited in Europe and Japan. In the US, genetically modified foods are not fed to laboratory rats, but directly to the people. If you live in the US, YOU are the guinea pig. This film shows that this food can produce severe allergic reactions.

In the US, there were 0 acres with genetically modified crops in 1980, and they went to 100.000.000 acres in 2003, with soybean, corn, canola and cotton as the major crops. Tests are now being performed on the rest of the living community including fish, livestock, poultry, trees, etc.

Monsanto not only determines what consumers will put into their bodies in the US, since those foods are not labeled, but they also virtually took over all land where corn, canola, soybean and cotton is being produced. They even aggressively pursuit the family farmers who had a tradition of improving their seeds naturally, saving part of them for the next season. Some years ago, when we still lived in a world wherein justice prevailed, when a farmer had cattle, it was his duty to fence them in, in order to prevent them damaging the crops of his neighbors. Capitalism has gone so wild nowadays, and the power of the big corporations has increased so much, that corporations now change this ancient justice system in order to suit their needs. So we now arrived in a situation where inspectors of Monsanto are crossing the whole country to find genetically modified crops on land of farmers who are suffering from this cross pollination. Monsanto then accuses those farmers of the theft of their patent ! I hope I can live long enough to see one day, justice will prevail again, and Monsanto will be prosecuted for the genetic pollution of the farm land of the US and Canada, that is already affecting Mexico also.

This movie also shows that food engineering is not good for us. Genetic modification doesn't produce any nutritional value. Those foods are only good for Monsanto, so they can sell more Roundup. Now, they sell this technology as if "it will help feed the world". Nothing could be further from the truth. There is enough food in the world for everybody already, the point is that the hungry are too poor to buy food. On the other hand, Monsanto puts now a "terminator" gene into their seeds, so that seeds cannot be saved and used for a next harvest. The big question is : what's gone happen when all those "suicide genes" will cross pollinate with other crops around the world ? Will we then be feeding the world ?

The future of food is in our hands. When we buy organics, we don't take care only of our own health, we also show we care for the farmer and the future of the world - for the future of our children. It's up to you.
