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

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...

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!

Why are companies like Monsanto "allowed" to operate in such a fashion and the general public (including farmers) not understanding what is happening? Yes, a greater yield per years is enticing but at what cost? Many people are going to local organic farms to purchase their food. The Amish and small organic farmers, for example, grow great crops (small fields and rotate their crops as per years ago). It is all about money with Monsanto, should it not be about health and well being?
This DVD should be part of Primary school and High school curriculum to educate those whose future may be at risk. Then let them decide for themselves or do something about this monopoly. I have seen other documentaries on Monsanto. This one is very informative. Thank you.

Si vous avez à cœur votre santé, regardez attentivement ce reportage...C'est vraiment frustrant de constater que nos dirigeants ferment les yeux sur un sujet si vital. Vous vous devez d'être renseigner sur un sujet si important, votre santé en dépend.

Very frightening to know what Monsanto is able to do. A must see. If you think GMO can feed the world, watch this. If you think GMO is harmless, think again!

Another "must watch" movie. Well, watch it if you want to know why. It's worth every penny.
