Storyline

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 Anonymous

GMOs
30 March 2021 | by treydog-86879See all my reviews

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.
