The fact is, there has never been a single study on the human safety of these products. Any implication to the contrary is a pure fabrication. Make the corporate apologists produce a single study, and they can not. The important point is this.

Among scientists, the scientific community is deeply divided as to whether these foods are safe or not, so the burden of proof is on industry. And so far, the corporations have failed to demonstrate the safety of these foods on humans through a single study. In the last thirty years global demand for food has doubled. In a race to feed the planet, scientists have discovered how to manipulate DNA, the blueprint of life, and produce what they claim are stronger, more disease-resistant crops. However, fears that Genetically Modified Food may not be safe for humans or the environment has sparked violent protest. Are we participating in a dangerous global nutritional experiment? This informative film helps the viewer decide if the production of genetically modified food is a panacea for world hunger or a global poison.

    The
    U.S. population has historically placed a considerable degree of trust in the
    regulatory oversight provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and its
    agencies. There is little tradition of people having a close relationship with
    their food, with the overwhelming majority of people having bought their food
    in supermarkets for years. But the 2003 survey by the Pew Research Center
    showed that even in the U.S., 55% see GM food as “bad” food. A 2010
    survey found that over one third of U.S. consumers were very or extremely
    concerned about GM food, a 3% reduction from 2008. You can take action by

    What? we have never studied any of our food? I mean, we have genetically modified, through trial and error, every morcel of food we eat that was all created through artificial selection and we know nothing on how it would affect us. Find this hard to believe. Anyway, its nice to hear that we are starting genitically modifying our food in a more controlled manner. Afterall, with the swelling population of now 7 billion and rising to 10 billion in the next fifty years, its good to know we may have a method of producing more nutrient dense food. I am personally a bit tired of the fact that now millions of people are starving and that number is also increasing exponentially with population growth and the loss of productive land. Was there a point to this documentary other than showing how the creators are completely ignorant and without a shred of foresite and a complete lack of backsite? maybe someone can fill me in.

      I like most of what you have to say, though ” I am personally a bit tired of the fact that now millions of people are
      starving and that number is also increasing exponentially with
      population growth and the loss of productive land.”
      I would argue that so many people are starving because of the unequal distribution of food, for ecologic and political reasons. Industrial farming contributes to the loss of productive land by allocating so much of it to the production of mono-cultures for animal feed.
      The reality is that even with a rapidly increasing population, we have more than enough arable land available to provide nutrition for everyone.
      It boils down to economics and the sick capacity of mankind to ignore atrocity.
