Important movie
27 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a comprehensive, educational and well-made documentary. It should be required viewing for everyone, but especially for the younger generation who will be inheriting this mess that is our current agricultural culture. Without informative media like this film, many folks will never know about the dangers of the way most of our food is grown and the consequences that will have, until it is too late. Ironically, the big corporations mentioned in this film do not know that there are more important things than money, because bees are one of them and a thriving bee population will increase profits. See this film and then vote with your fork!
