Are you worried about the potential impacts genetically engineered foods might have on you health? What about the health of your children?
And beyond the possible health implications, what do genetically modified agricultural crops mean for local food security, farmers’ ability to save seeds and the environment?
It’s with these sorts of questions in mind that director Jeremy Seifert set out to make the engaging feature-length documentary GMO OMG.
Travelling around the globe in the search for answers, he offers a critical perspective on this controversial technology that is supposed to stop world hunger, but appears mostly to be a tool for consolidating control over the food we eat in the hands of a few powerful agro-chemical companies.
If you’re in two minds about the benefits and detriments of genetic engineering, GMO OMG will provide you with some of the answers.
A must-see for anyone who cares about the food they eat.
