First released in 2012, Seeds of Death – Unveiling the Lies of GMOs exposes the dangers of genetically modified foods and features leading scientists, physicians, professors, attorneys and activists. Directed and written by Gary Null and Richard Polotnesky, the film investigates the corruption surrounding GMOs and the deception being perpetrated against the world. As we read on www.documentarystorm.com:
“In today’s supermarkets, you’d be hard-pressed to find food that didn’t contain some form of genetically modified substances. These genetically modified substances’ effects on our health are completely unknown and Big Industry players such as Monsanto , DuPont , and Syngenta , are essentially exposing us to one of the largest and dangerous science experiments ever conducted on our civilization.
// // Over the past ten years or so, there has been a huge surge in the awareness of the potential dangers and effects these foods may have on our health. However, proponents of GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) in the food industry, who all happen to have a vested interest in it’s use, argue that using bioengineered food is necessary to keep up with the world’s population demand for food. This claim isn’t backed by much evidence and many are skeptical.”
The controversy is, do these GMOs really bring value to us as a society or is it doing more damage than anything else. This full-length feature film documentary, Seeds of Death, answers this question with a resounding “no,” featuring the world’s leading Scientists, Physicians, Attorneys, Politicians and Environmental Activists who expose the corruption and dangers surrounding the widespread use of Genetically Modified Organisms.
Once you’ve watched the film, we recommend that you review the “Question and Answer” fact sheet deconstructing Monsanto’s and Big Agriculture’s GM claims.
Among the leading scientists featured is Arpad Pusztai. Pusztai was one of the first scientists to raise concerns about the safety of genetically modified foods. In the late 1990s, Pusztai, a respected molecular biologist, conducted research on GM potatoes for the Rowett Institute in Scotland. The potatoes were genetically altered to produce lectins, natural insecticides, to protect them against aphids. Pusztai conducted feeding studies on rats and found that the potatoes damaged the animals’ gut, other organs, and immune system. In 1998, Pusztai expressed his concerns about GM foods on a British television program and was promptly suspended and forced to retire from his position. Dr. Pusztai’s research was later peer reviewed and published in The Lancet, a leading British medical journal.
