Some day soon I hope to be able to say. GMO crops in the USA was a dark chapter in our food history that thankfully is no more a reality, but something that we need to remember so as not to repeat these mistakes again.
This documentary is really a great watch and the best thing I’ve seen come down the pipeline since Food Inc. I am not sure when this was made, but I believe it was some time in 2012. By the time you see this post, Obama, if he did the right thing, will have vetoed the HR 933 that had a completely unrelated ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ slipped in there.
And now, Genetic Roullette:

Here we go again

OK, it’s become a shell game of sorts trying to keep a copy of this up on youtube.
Here’s the latest:

When man thinks he can play God, the result is a major drag. Just because we have the scientific knowledge and ability to do something doesn’t mean we SHOULD do that thing.
I regret to inform you that late Tuesday night, March 27, 2013 President Barack Obama signed H.R. 933, which contained the Monsanto Protection Act into law. President NObama knowingly signed the Monsanto Protection Act over the urgent pleas of more than 250,000 Americans who asked that he use his executive authority to veto it. President Obama failed to live up to his oath to protect the American people and our constitution. I am so not surprised, just disappointed.
I never liked He-Man Masters of the Universe cartoons as a kid so I never watched them. Ridiculed fans of it maybe. This may be an oldie in internet years, but it’s still funny. Good comedy will stand up in the long run. Funny is funny. Daniel – the creator of these parodies did this for fun as I remember… As a result, he ended up getting a real [paying] gig out of the exposure.
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, healthy lifestyle is part of my thing.
The Future Of Food (2004)
This documentary came out November 13, 2007 according to the info on Hulu – less than 4 years ago as of this posting. However, when checking out the history of the film on it’s OWN website, I found this:
The Future of Food has been a key tool in the American and international anti-GMO grassroots activist movements and played widely in the environmental and activist circuits since its release in 2004. The film is widely acknowledged for its role in educating voters and the subsequent success of passing Measure H in Mendocino County, California, one of the first local initiatives in the country to ban the planting of GMO crops. Indicative of its popularity, the Future of Food showed to a sold out audience of 1,500 at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco in 2004, a benefit for Slow Food, where it was introduced by Alice Waters.

Like Food Inc. and The World According To Monsanto, it is an eye opener for many as to what’s being done to our food supply. Remember, knowledge is power and ignorance breeds complacency and allows for ease of control. Keep informed!
The Future Of Food offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade
