A must see for anyone who eats food and cares about what they eat. If you know to buy organic or Non GMO foods, this doc will NOT scare you into not eating, just to be a bit more cautious. They present many facts that get you thinking about A must see for anyone who eats food and cares about what they eat. If you know to buy organic or Non GMO foods, this doc will NOT scare you into not eating, just to be a bit more cautious. They present many facts that get you thinking about how GMO foods may affect the future. One in particular is the US gov't patent on the suicide gene- that is something we should all know about to make sure it is NOT used. Hopefully nobody sees this doc to be entertained as it is meant to enlighten us, though it definitely keeps you captivated! Ignorance is bliss until the truth comes crashing down on you. It is time now we are informed about the hidden aspects of our country. GMO definitely falls under that category. Expand

Although Garcia and the crew had plenty of access to proponents of GM crops and honest brokers in the scientific community, they chose to ignore them and their expertise and present a one sided and distorted diatribe about not just GM but Although Garcia and the crew had plenty of access to proponents of GM crops and honest brokers in the scientific community, they chose to ignore them and their expertise and present a one sided and distorted diatribe about not just GM but modern agriculture -- including the Green Revolution that kept hundreds of millions from dying of starvation in India/Pakistan. Meanwhile, hundreds of millions in Africa are using Garcia's advice to go organic (they have no resources to buy inputs) and they are going hungry and starving. Many of the "facts" be it about allergic reactions to Starlink Bt corn (the woman who claimed the reaction in the film was later proven to be making false claims) or about the effects of GMO corn on Oaxacan farmers are simply lies. On the other hand, if you want to know about large corporate activity in the seed and GMO sphere from a balanced and informed perspective, pick up the books Lords of the Harvest (Charles) and Food Inc (Pringle). This movie may rally the anti-GM troops, but its full of half truths and inuendos, and downright falsehoods and so should not be considered authoritative in any sense of the term. Expand

Scary S**T! I am afraid to eat anything. This is a great and scary look into our food system and the corporations who are getting way too much control into our food.

Seemingly informative film killed by lifeless droning narration. Not clear what the counterpoint is to the film's asssertions as seems to be no effort to present opposing views. Not sure what people saw in this film.
