After watching The World According to Monsanto I felt sick to my stomach, and compelled to change career paths and apply to law school so I can kick some Monsanto butt. How is it possible that I have not seen this movie before? Before watching this film I knew some detail about Monsanto’s unethical practices, their influence in the government and about the dangers for GE crops, but I did know about the extent to which Monsanto is taking over food production globally.
As with all documentaries, this film should be taken with a grain of salt (perhaps a salt-rimmed margarita… that would certainly help the message go down). Very good information; very strong opinions about controversial issues like genetic engineering, and biotechnology. You’ve been warned!
Anyone who has any desire to be a conscientious eater should watch this movie. Heck, even if you don’t care, still watch this movie! (There is also a book, which I haven’t read yet, but the movie is pretty darn inspiring so if you’re in the mood to kick back, this documentary is a great place to start!)
