Bad Seed - The Dangerous Truth About our Food
This enlightening documentary exposes a vast conspiracy to contaminate and control the world's food supply through genetic engineering of food crops. Leading scientists and activists present the facts that you need to know about genetically modified organisms (GMOs). 80% of food sold in North America already has ingredients made of GMOs that have not been adequately tested for safety.

Seeds of Freedom is a film that charts the story of seed from its place at the heart of traditional, diversity-rich farming systems across the world, to its transformation into a powerful commodity, used to monopolise the global food system.
The film highlights the extent to which the industrial agricultural system, and genetically modified (GM) seeds in particular, have impacted on the enormous agro-biodiversity evolved by farmers and communities around the world, since the beginning of agriculture. Seeds of Freedom seeks to challenge the mantra (promoted by the pro-GM lobby) that large-scale, industrial agriculture is the only means by which we can feed the world. In tracking the story of seed it becomes clear how the corporate agenda has driven the takeover of seed in order to make vast profit and control of the global food system.
Through interviews with leading international experts including Dr Vandana Shiva and Henk Hobbelink, UK political figures Zac Goldsmith MP and Caroline Lucas MP, and through the voices of a number of African farmers, the film highlights how the loss of indigenous seed goes hand in hand with loss of biodiversity and related knowledge; the loss of cultural traditions and practices; the loss of livelihoods; and the loss of food sovereignty. The pressure from agribusiness interests is growing and threatens to replace the diverse, nutritional, locally adapted and resilient seed crops which have been bred by small-scale farmers for millennia.

This powerful documentary provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, especially among children, and offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future.
(NaturalNews) According to the new documentary Genetic Roulette, "...physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improved." Information is power. For a limited time, this important documentary can be viewed online for a nominal cost.
In the wake of the startling findings that GM corn causes massive tumors, liver damage and shortened life spans in rats (www.naturalnews.com/037249_GMO_study_cancer_tumors_organ_damage.html), it is vital now more than ever to educate friends and family about the dangers of GM food. Genetic Roulette couldn't have arrived at a better time. A production of the Institute for Responsible Technology, Genetic Roulette features interviews with farmers, scientists, physicians, educators and chefs who explore the dangers of genetically engineered food. The film is by Jefferey Smith, author of The Seeds of Deception, and seeks to expose "the unintended but real health consequences of genetically engineering our food," said promoter Rodney Robinson. The documentary covers everything from the basic defining criteria of genetically modified organisms to California Ballot Initiative 37. Genetic Roulette also examines the significant connection between GM food and the rise of birth defects, autism, allergies and intestinal damage.
