The World According To Monsanto

August 5, 2010 by esarsea

My apologies for the length of this post, it will take you a while to watch all these videos. Each clip runs about 10 minutes, so there’s a couple hours worth of viewing here.

The information however is of value. In fact, I would go so far as to say it’s important. Even if you can only watch one or two videos per visit, I encourage everyone to complete the series.

My interest in Monsanto was piqued by a discussion of the movie Food Inc. which I heard on the radio on the way to work this morning. If you can resist the temptation, I recommend watching all 10 Monsanto videos before viewing the one about Fox News.

…and this final installment, as a  follow-up:

Note: I did some checking and found that these clips were taken from a documentary available here on Amazon. Since the clips were on youtube I guess it’s fair game to share them here.

That being said however, please consider supporting the persons who did the research and who incurred the expense to bring us this information by purchasing their DVD.

    (Ahem……….) I just watched the Fox News piece. I will stand by what I’ve said before: Fox News is not a professional newsgathering and reporting organization. It’s twisted, politically infected gossip that can be turned on a dime and has No Journalistic Integrity. Even the evil Main Stream Media would have run with this story and would have had a field day with it.

    I love the part about a news organiztion not having to broadcast the truth, legally. Duh!

      Bill, did you break the rules and watch the Fox vid first? Now that you’ve posted your opinion of Fox’s handling of this story, I guess I’ll probably do the same.

      See how we are! ;-)

    Well, do watch the other clips as time allows. There’s some interesting stuff there.

    Excerpt from “Monsanto: The evil corporation in your refrigerator” at Wallet Pop:

    “Anyone who can read a label knows that corn, soy and cotton can be found in just about every American food product. Upwards of 90% of all corn, soybeans and cotton are grown from genetically engineered seeds, also known as genetically modified organisms (GMOs). These genetically enhanced products appear in around 70% of all American processed food products. And Monsanto controls 90% of all genetically engineered seeds. In other words, Monsanto controls — and owns patents on — most of the American food supply.”

    Stu, I just watched the first vid. Very interesting 1st, it reminded me of the Love Canal screwup. I’m surprised folks are still living there next to Snow Creek. 2nd, it always seems as though when these types of problems with product are first revealed, there are the usual coverups along with Govt. involvement and yet, the folks are rarely fully compensated. I’ll watch more over the weekend as time permits.
    Good stuff!

    Bill, I’m gonna let you continue in your quivering quest as I plan to watch the Fox vid after the 1st 10 are viewed.

  5. […] August of last year I posted a piece, The World According To Monsanto. Some of you may only have watched a clip or two, and some of you may not have watched any of […]
