A very good documentary about biotech food. Not just the possible dangers of the consumption of the food as addressed by Japan and Europe, but also about patent laws on life. Watch this one.

"If you live in the US and eat food, you have to see this. If you are not familiar with GM(genetically modified) foods or do not intentionally avoid GM foods, you are probably consuming them. Soy, corn and canola are the main crops being manipulated by the "White Coats".

Deborah Garcia(widow of Jerry Garcia) shows what is going on in the Corporate agriculture world. There must come a point where man says "Haven't we screwed things up enough, is profit more important than what is right and just?"

The corruption that is engulfing the whole agriculture community is unreal. If grown properly and organically there should be no need for fertilizers and pesticides. If the soil is mineral rich than crops should grow unhindered. Read "One Straw Revolution" by Masanobu Fukoka, if you can get your hands on a copy. He explanes thoroughly how to grow crops naturally with as little human intervention as possible.

Thank you Ms Garcia for this enlightening documentary.

"A MUST-SEE! Thank you to Ms Garcia! This is the VERY BEST, most informative and well-done documentary on the matter. The essential is summarized in one place: a DVD that is real easy to follow. It is quite comprehensive. Some very strong reports/interviews from well-known scientists, and testimonials from genuine farmers. Also all the animations are excellent. And the photography is in many places beautiful (especially the part filmed in Mexico). On the top of that, it is also the best documentary I've ever seen, flowing along an amazingly informative path. I highly recommend it for a) those who know about this matter, and b) those who don't know yet about it :~]"
What America Eats - GMO

"Informative documentary about our food supply. Includes information about the Genetically Modified food industry, and farmers who try to resist GMO and get sued by corporations. A different DVD which shows the destructive nature of GMO / chemical farming on both the farmers and the soil, ...and shows an active solution taking place in India is "How to Save the World". Watch "The Future of Food" first, and then the enlightening "How to Save the World", for a incredible real world solution that is happening now. Both are entertaining and can educate you on what is really happening to food and farmers in the USA and other countries!"
