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.

I had no idea why GMO was a big fuss until I watched this documentary. It clearly explained what a GMO is, how it was introduced,the history, and the problems we face today with the farmers and Monsanto specifically. The narrator interviewed both sides so that you could hear the other side's argument. It is a bit one sided, but the narrator wants to make a point. The experts at Monsanto refused any interviews. The interviews he did with his kids were not to be taken seriously. They were to show what children think of GMO and their understanding. It upsets me that organic farmers have been forced to buy Monsanto's seeds because Monsanto threatened to sue them. The overall movie was very informational, and I recommend watching it before judging.
