French Documentary on Monsanto Products

Folks, you should be aware of what Monsanto is doing to control food production around the world. A French company produced an enlightening documentary we probably won't be able to see in the US on commercial television. (Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 Part 7 Part 8 Part 9 Part 10).

Please watch the entire program; at the end is a section that describes the pollution of ancient strains of Mexican corn by Monsanto's industrial corn. The result is that the corn which has traditionally not needed fertilizer or pesticide, now needs both. The Mexicans believe that Monsanto is intentionally polluting their corn crops because they have outlawed the use of genetically-modified corn.

There's a similar article in Vanity Fair that discusses this problem.

To see what other problems Monsanto is causing around the world, look at the website of the Organic Consumers Association. They have been tracking the damage that this company is doing to our health, to our planet, and to our future.

Take a deep breath,
