Filmmaker Jeremy Seifert journeys to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and even agri-giant Monsanto in search of answers about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and how they affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice.
Today in the United States, by the simple acts of feeding ourselves, we are unwittingly participating in the largest experiment ever conducted on human beings. Each of us unknowingly consumes genetically engineered food on a daily basis. The risks and effects to our health and the environment are largely unknown. Yet more and more studies are being conducted around the world, which only provide even more reason for concern. We are the oblivious guinea pigs for wide-scale experimentation of modern biotechnology. GMO OMG tells the story of a fathers discovery of GMOs in relationship to his 3 young children and the world around him. We still have time to heal the planet, feed the world, and live sustainably. But we have to start now!Written by
GMO - Organisms in which the genetic material DNA has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally. 2 basic types of GMOS: Pesticide producers and Herbicide Resisters. PP kills insects like Monsanto's BT Corn, a gene from a naturally occurring bacteria is inserted into the DNA of corn. The modified corn releases a toxin that kills insects. Herbicide Resisters are immune to weed killer, like round up ready. The herbicide is inserted into the plant DNA to make it resistant to round up. The...

Ok, to all the people claiming that those who are in support of GMOs are all "payed by Monsanto" or "brainwashed" should reconsider their sources. There is no denying the majority of scientists believe GMOs are safe. On top of that, the EU, WHO, AAAS, and many more agencies/scientist groups say the same. Many will say that all of the research has been done/manipulated by Monsanto, but that is not true. GMOs are a big topic, and millions on non-Monsanto research dollars have been put in to studying the safety of GM foods. I am not here to say people don't have the right to know whether their food contains GMOs, but I am here to say that this documentary is misleading and not scientifically vigilant.
