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

Biased, and not informative
7 October 2016 | by kobra8706See all my reviews

It took all of 10 minutes for me to start asking "is he going to present any facts, or will this be entirely him making assumptions?" Didn't take long after that for me to start laughing at it. And not much longer after that i just gave up on it. If you're already anti-GMO you'll probably really enjoy this. If you're hoping for information, on the other hand, don't waste your time. He makes claims about GMOs being bad for you, while also saying there's no credible data about GMOs. What? How does that work? The opening of the movie set the tone perfectly: very biased parents trying to protect their kids from all chemical threats. It's one thing if you actually understand what you're afraid of, but it's another to make a documentary claiming that all GMOs are bad when you don't know what your dealing with. At one point, he says he's ready for a fist fight... hopefully he meant to fight off angry viewers who wasted money on this fact deficient propaganda film.
