The World According to Monsanto is an excellent documentary by Marie-Monique Robin.
Get cozy with a cup of Non-GMO Soy Chai and watch this incredibly frightening documentary on the huge agro-monster Monsanto. These earth polluting bastards produce the herbicide Round Up and also make loads of money from its transgenic seed sales. Their decevious green website does not surprise me after seeing their lack of global ethics toward the small farmers in India and South America. Don’t worry, there are not excluding the crops in the United States, as they are screwing us too. Sometimes you have to watch out for those companies with pretty websites laced with green words, Ghandi quotes and philanthropic outreach programs. Do not just swallow the bologna with a glass of rGH milk, as Monsanto is definitely a case of a wolf behind a sheep’s mask.
Tune in to learn fabulous new vocab words such as transgenic contamination, BT Genes and political Revolving Doors. Awareness will also be made of the nasty effects that Round Up chemicals have on innocent families, independent farms and food dependence. You will never look at soybeans, corn or cotton the same way ever again.
What can you do? Ummm… pray for the survival of genetic diversity? Seriously, the best step is to keep buying organic and non genetically modified products. For the green thumbs, when you are growing your gardens and food, do not purchase GM seeds from these a-holes, as they are Seeds of Suicide! Stay away from hybrid seeds and make safe purchases from small seed companies like Heirloom Seeds and Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.
And of course, the most fun All Natural Me thing to do is Spread The Word!
