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

Complete waste of time
16 November 2014 | by samantha-y-ganSee all my reviews

This is the stupidest "documentary" I've ever seen. How exactly do interviews with 3 year old kids and long montages of said kids running around contribute to a rational discussion of the GMO debate? He at no point presents any useful information one way or the other. All he does is interview non-experts who provide their opinions on the matter - opinions that are not necessarily based on any facts.

Only one scientific study was presented, from a paper that was later retracted due to widespread criticism from the community. The director indicates that all of the scientists who criticised the paper were somehow linked with the biotech industry, but this would not be enough to force the journal to retract the paper. There had to have been enough independent critics for the journal to have taken it seriously. If you look up Prof Seralini, he is a highly controversial figure in the scientific community. Why were no other scientists interviewed? Could it be that the director only wanted to interview people who supported his point of view?

This is basically just a bunch of ignorant, ill-informed, anti-science scaremongering and it makes me disgusted to think that there might be people out there who actually think this is a valid presentation of the GMO debate.
