Future of Food

Watch the Future of Food Now

This is an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade. It examines the complex web of market and political forces that are changing what we eat as huge multinational corporations seek to control the world‘s food system.


 

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

Without a doubt this is one of the best documentaries I have ever viewed. It will help you understand the very real threat that ALL future generations face as a result of genetic engineering.

Please schedule 90 minutes and watch this film with your family.

Also pass the link to your friends and family, who you should be seeing over the holidays; they also need to see this! It could be one of the best investments of your and their time -- ever.

Your jaw will drop to the floor when you find out how Monsanto has manipulated the Supreme Court and how they are risking the very future of our civilization for their own corporate greed.

Monsanto has succeeded in first patenting their own GMO seeds, and then slapping patents on a huge number of crop seeds, patenting life forms for the first time without a vote of the people or Congress ... thus letting new life forms loose on the land without long-term testing of the health effects and real government controls, especially labeling of foods.

The film questions why the U.S. government hasn't required GMO foods to undergo the rigorous testing required of medicines created by recombinant DNA technology, and why it has resisted efforts to require GMO labeling on foods, as Europe does.

Suggesting an answer, the film ticks off all the government officials who have links to Monsanto, including Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman, Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld and Attorney General John Ashcroft.

Terminator technology may be one of the greatest threats to humanity. If it is used by Monsanto on a large-scale basis, it will likely inevitably lead to famine and starvation on a worldwide basis. Billions of people on the planet are supported by farmers who save seeds from the crops and replant these seeds the following year.

Seeds are planted. The crop is harvested. And the seeds from the harvest are replanted the following year. Most farmers cannot afford to buy new seeds every year, so collecting and replanting seeds is a crucial part of the agricultural cycle. This is the way food has been grown successfully for thousands of years.

What is most concerning is that the traits from genetically-engineered crops can get passed on to other crops. Once the terminator seeds are released into a region, the trait of seed sterility could be passed to other non-genetically-engineered crops, making most or all of the seeds in the region sterile.

If that is not bad enough, consider this:

Phytochemicals (free-radical and anti-oxidants) are substances that plants naturally produce to protect themselves against viruses, bacteria, and fungi and are essential for the next generation of seeds. The plant creates phytochemicals as it comes to its peak ripeness on the vine.

The foods we eat today are already lacking in these essential elements due to the fact that the majority of our foods are picked before peak ripeness for transportation means. The reason it is recommended that we eat several servings of fruits and vegetables a day is because of the health-providing benefits of these phytochemicals.

If the terminator seed prevents the plant from germinating the vegetable or fruit itself will not contain any of these essential nutrients and our bodies and immune systems will be left open for attack from all viruses and bacteria. We will be defenseless, as plants are our only way of getting these essential nutrients.

On Vital Votes, biochemist Dr. Russ Bianchi from
Soquel, California weighs in:

"The food chain folks is totally corrupted by the GREED and PROFIT factor, with little, or no oversight, or real policing, despite official representations to the contrary, unless you kill a couple of dozen folks in a junk or fast food joint, in a pattern that can not be denied, or litigated with a gag order and sealing or records, out of court.

"'The Future Of Food' IS this century's version of Upton Sinclair's expose 'The Jungle', which exposed the horrid conditions of the meat and poultry industry in America, at the turn of the 20th century.

"After watching this important video, you will think more than twice about consuming ANYTHING remotely near genetic modification, for yourselves, your family, or your friends!!!

"Remember, the European Union has already BANNED GMO, for good reason, it is unhealthy, NOT safe, and DEADLY!!!

"So why is the FDA allowing GMO to move forward in the USA? ...  Simple, as the line from Watergate suggested from the shadowy informer called Deep Throat: 'follow the money' ?

"Here is a chance, though be it a remote one, considering the media PR blitz pushing GMO in the USA, to help yourselves and your health, by not falling for a total con job from Big GMO pushers.

"Just Say 'NO!' ... if you do not purchase GMO products, they will be unable to sell them.

"Pressure your retailers (local markets, produces sellers, dairies, Supermarket and Big Box Store or specialty and natural health food chains) to have FULL disclosure if genetically modified ... an economic response is the ONLY true counter-balancing force left to stop this incarnate EVIL.
