(Click Here To Let Us Know)

THE FUTURE OF FOOD is a feature length documentary that offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled grocery store shelves for the past decade.

The Future of Food has also been a key tool in the American and international anti-GMO grassroots activist movements and played widely in the environmental and activist circuits since its release in 2004. The film is widely acknowledged for its role in educating voters and the subsequent success of passing Measure H in Mendocino County, California, one of the first local initiatives in the country to ban the planting of GMO crops.

    This documentary is kind of useless. It devotes a lot of it’s time to criticism of the cartelized food industry, which is good and useful, though they take a hard line against genetic engineering, which is unnecessary and unwise in my opinion.’

    They also use manipulative sound design and editing.

    When it comes time to offer alternatives to the current system, they fall short. They basically just advocate “organic” food. Organic food is a good idea for a couple of reasons, mainly because it uses emergent standards for agricultural, rather than man-made designed ones. But I don’t know that they realized this.

    They did not go into other ideas, such as perma-culture, a meshing of intentional design and emergent structure.

    The only real piece of activism they advise is being careful about what you choose to buy, which I agree with, but nothing else.

    dude, the only real alternative is you grow your own food, people should become self sufficient in 21st century or they will die without realizing that everything they know of is made either of oil, or because of oil.
    for now, it is enough to just buy from someone you know is growing plain natural food, not some monsanto’s frankenfood, but soon it will be necessary to grow your own food and be self sufficient, meaning you survive without need to buy food or water from anyone.
    Mark these words.
    Also it is the only true alternative, back to basics, we’ve ridden the oil benefits and luxuries long enough.

      Probably a good documentary but I just could not stand watching that enormous logo blastered over half the screen for more than 1 minute. Iskysoft logo blows!

    the best thing about organic foods is that they are free from hazardous chemicals that are present in non-organic foods`:-

    The research is out there for those really interested to look. Some is hard to locate.
    It is my feeling that manipulation/control on this scale, at this level is insidious and fundamentally evil. The understanding of which will only be obvious in hindsight, then it will be too late. (How do you take back an aggressively modified plant with a terminator gene embedded, once it has jumped the fence?)
    The problem is that attempts to control nature on this level will not only devastate plants animals and humans, it may cause an even greater and more urgent response from nature, and humanity will be the loser. Perhaps at this point even profit won’t matter.
    A key to our survival might be that we respect nature’s logic.

    This film is retarded, just like environmentalists.  We’re living longer and longer and longer as time goes on, but envirodunces have to make up problems to complain about and justify their existence.  Case in point, globull warming.

    Get a life, envirotards. Go fuck some trees!

  • Gezelle

    this has opened my eyes to the evil people will go to for money if we let them… think about all the things that have happened in the past like slavery and the gas chamber they just wanted to take over the world and we are the super heros that stop that from happening …..

    A very important and insightful documentary. THIS IS A MUST WATCH IF YOU CARE ABOUT THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY! Cannot stress that enough as the issues that are covered in this documentary, could be detrimental to everyones future.

    AFTER WATCHING THIS DOCUMENTARY, PLEASE SPREAD IT AROUND TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE!

    Why don’t farmers countersue Monsanto for “CONTAMINATED” their fields and crops with Monsanto’s genetic engineered seeds? It’s obvious that Monsanto’s seeds are unwanted and out of control in spreading onto their private land and crops.

    The FDA and the EPA are two government agencies should be eliminated. There should be laws that completely ban the activities of lobbyists and congressional members to accept campaign donations from private companies.

      they did and were told that they were stirring shit up and creating drama where none was needed. the organic seed growers and trade association are planning to appeal the ruling. this decision was made by some district judge by the name of 
      Judge Naomi Buchwald
