Storyline

THE FUTURE OF FOOD offers 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. From the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada to the fields of Oaxaca, Mexico, this film gives a voice to farmers whose lives and livelihoods have been negatively impacted by this new technology. The health implications, government policies and push towards globalization are all part of the reason why many people are alarmed about the introduction of genetically altered crops into our food supply. Shot on location in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, The Future of Food 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. The film also explores alternatives to large-scale industrial agriculture, placing organic and sustainable agriculture as real solutions to the farm crisis ... Written by Anonymous

Every American should add this to their MUST watch list!
29 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary is a terrifying eye opener that every American should watch. The future of our food truly depends on the educating of American citizens. Our food is being tampered with in an unnatural way and the long term ramifications are unknown. We deserve to know what is in our food and it is our job to DEMAND it! This film opens your eyes to the risks of GMO's in our food, the corruption that is our food industry, the injustices small farmers face at the hands of corporations, and the danger of tampering with mother nature. If we don't fight for the complete elimination of GMO foods we may wipe out any indigenous agriculture we have left. Please watch this and any other informative documentaries on food. Tell your friends and loved ones. Sign every petition you can, and contact your local legislature to share your voice!
