GMOs and Free Speech: Scientists Under Attack (Trailer)
by grtv

In the early 90s the Agro-Chemicals-Multi Monsanto introduced genetically modified plants onto the market, which is the equivalent of an agricultural revolution for some that will solve all the world’s food problems. Others view these plants as an irrevocable destruction of bio-diversity on this planet that needs to be fiercely combated.

Árpád Pusztai and Ignacio Chapela have two things in common. They are distinguished scientists and their careers are in ruins. Both scientists choose to look at the phenomenon of genetic engineering. Both made important discoveries. Both of them are suffering the fate of those who criticise the powerful vested interests that now dominate big business and scientific research.

Statements made by scientists themselves prove that 95% of the research in the area of genetic engineering is paid by the industry. Only 5% of the research is independent. The big danger for freedom of science and our democracy is evident. Can the public – we all – still trust our scientists?

Seems like it has to be an excellent and important documentary, and the official website is, scientistsunderattack.com. I've seen parts of it in the past and it definitely seems very recommendable.

The GMO industry is deadly. The GMO advocates believe in breeding humans that can handle their poison and not show any adverse health effects. I would say they are mentally deficient to adopt such an unhealthy attitude.
But, then I suppose my attitude invites a drooling, parsed reply.

a belief system that realizes there is only love or insanity cannot come about until one begins to wonder how the avoidance of the search for truth equates to sanity

browsing through some of the posts I realized it's new to me.
Anyways, I'm definitely delighted I found it and I'll be bookmarking it and checking
