Product Description

Product Description

Monsanto, the world's largest producer of genetically engineered products, claims their patented GM seeds and bovine growth hormone (BGH) will increase worldwide production of agricultural, dairy, meat, and Bt cotton and can eradicate world hunger and poverty. However Monsanto (maker of Agent Orange), is frequently described as the "Gestapo" and "Mafia" by farmers who use their products due to their use of pressure tactics, attempts at corruption, misleading reports, and collusion with the American Government.

The World According to Monsanto pieces together the true, unsettling story of how the clean, green image conveyed by the company's advertising serves as a smoke screen for Monsanto's quest for market supremacy - to the detriment of global food security, public health and environmental stability.

Review

"A cogent and horrifying enough picture of the world's leading seed manufacturer to warrant concern and fury." -- Meg Hewings, HOUR.CA

"A devastating exposé ... will freeze the blood in your veins." -- John Griffin, THE GAZETTE

"A film that should be seen as widely as possible ... scrupulous, thorough and damning." -- Malcolm Fraser, MONTREAL MIRROR

4.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should watch this... Dec 10 2008
Format:DVD
You should take the time and watch this video. It maybe to "green" for some people, but there are some interesting facts and information given in this film.

One of the most scariest things to think about is what happens when Monsanto owns our food? What then? You may not be eating genetically modified food, but what about all the livestock that is?

What about the 3rd/2nd/1st world, sending seeds to farmers and then have theses seeds kill or take over traditional crops, or not let farmers grow from the seed they produce, since these seeds are not free, they are owned by Monsanto..

Nature has to many variables to fully understand, no matter how many computer simulations we run, no "scientist", or "company" can fully understand any of the consequences of bring genetically modified plants to the world.

It scares me to think that these companies are out for their bottom line, rather then for the environment...

Have a look see...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Story Told Well Dec 15 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The film's director, Marie Monique Robin, a renowned TV journalist and documentary filmmaker from France, conducted simple yet extensive research on the multinational giant Monsanto. Her findings- the result of months of travel, interviews and basic Internet search- revealed decades of unethical operations and rogue products approved and injected into agriculture by the very government agencies charged with ensuring food safety and sustainable farming practices.

Although somewhat amateur at first sight, the documentary provides many testimonies of scientists, politicians, lawyers, farmers and victims of environmental pollution by Monsanto. Marie Monique Robin is actually shown browsing the internet, entering various criteria into the search field, which is helpful to anyone looking to do further research on the subject. Excepts from various scientific publications and declassified government and corporate documents are also displayed, aiding in better comprehension of the material by a visual learner (myself).

A truly great resource for anyone intrigued by the GMO question!
