Reality of Genetically Altered Food

High-tech tomatoes. Mysterious milk. Supersquash. Are we supposed to eat this stuff?  Or is it going to eat us? 

-Annita Manning

About 70% of the food we eat contains genetically modified ingredients and is not labeled. The biotechnology industry is spending $50 million a year to convince us that this technology is our only hope for feeding the world and saving the environment. Family farmers are disappearing at an astonishing rate as people continue to go hungry both here and abroad.

If you haven’t seen the movie Fed Up … DO!

This extremely informative documentary assembles a formidable array of experts on the current state of agribusiness, as well as amusing and frightening archival footage, to paint a picture of how we eat today. Including information about revolutions both Green and Biotech, the program answers many questions posed by the changing methods of food production and consumption. Interviewees include Marc Lappé and Britt Bailey from the Center for Ethics and Toxics, Ignacio Chapela from UC Berkeley’s Department of Environmental Science, and organic farmers from the Bay Area.

  1. Good share, Dawn.
    I did a lot of research on agribusiness 2 years ago and was stunned by what I found. If people knew how their fast food and processed food, or meat and dairy for that matter, is made they wouldn’t be able to eat it any more. That’s why the food/chemical industry works so hard to hide the truth. And they generously line the pockets of lawmakers to keep their dirty secrets.

    • It’s a sad state of affairs we’re in Jaqueline. Yes, it is appalling the coverups, lies, and corruption that is happening. You hit the nail on the head. Thank you for being so aware!
