The World According to Monsanto

Take the opportunity now while you still can, to view this documentary on Monsanto.

I am taking a wee holiday, so for this week's tip, I invite you to watch this documentary that aired on French television (ARTE – French-German cultural TV channel) by French journalist and film maker Marie-Monique Robin, called The World According to Monsanto – A documentary that Americans won’t ever see.

Perhaps not a bad idea to watch it now before Monsanto has it removed.

If you like to garden, perhaps you can consider looking into planting some heritage seeds, or varieties of vegetables and fruit that are not easily found in the supermarket, and help protect some of the biodiversity that Monsanto is trying to take away.

    Thank-you so much for sending this video what a wake-up call for the world!!
    I have tried to show it to my family and friends and have forwarded it to as many people as I can but recently I can not view it.
    Can you please send it again to me or is it like you said Monsanto has removed it!
    Thank-you for opening our eyes.

    Hi Colleen,

    I noticed that the movie was removed from Google …

    Thankfully it looks like the video was just posted on Mercola’s website. Thanks for spreading the word! And remember that 70% of the supermarket products are GMO – so stay away from all processed food, anything that contains any form of soy or corn unless it is organic. Most of us have no idea how much GMO food we are eating.

    I just became aware of this film on GMO food by Pamela Drew. It is shorter than the French film giving similar information, so view the trailer and order the DVD!
