Storyline

You do not have to believe that God exists, but you will after this movie know that the devil poster!

Monsanto has made some of the toxins that are responsible for many diseases, cancer, dementia and the rules are and say Napalm was used in the Vietnam War or PCB oils of which turned out to be a carcinogen as a small atomic bomb.

Quotes

David Carpenter, Ph.D.: We all have PCBs in our bodies, the polar bears and the penguins have PCBs, and what has happened is that in the past there were a few sites where PCBs where released, but over time they have gone into the air, they've gone into the water, they've transported so that the whole world is now contaminated with PCBs. The issue is that *many* diseases are caused by PCB exposure; the one everyone knows about is cancer.

The movie is anti-science conspiracy woo woo.
6 August 2015 | by (Northern California USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is chock full of unsubstantiated information and anti-science rhetoric. I dare say it is full of lies actually.

GMO food on the market today is as safe as ANY other food. There is not one single shred of tangible evidence to suggest that the GMO foods available to humanity cause harm to humans. NONE. After decades of use and millions of meals consumed, there has NEVER been any recorded death. None.

This thinking is rather shortsighted, anti-scientific and most unreasonable. The movie does harm to humanity by spreading false information.
