Monsanto, the world's largest producer of genetically engineered products, claims their patented GM seeds and bovine growth hormone (BGH) will increase worldwide production of agricultural, dairy, meat, and Bt cotton and can eradicate world hunger and poverty.
However, Monsanto (maker of Agent Orange) is frequently described as the Gestapo and mafia by farmers who use their products due to their use of pressure tactics, attempts at corruption, misleading reports and collusion with the American government. The World According to Monsanto pieces together the true, unsettling story of how the clean, green image conveyed by the company's advertising serves as a smoke screen for Monsanto's quest for market supremacy — to the detriment of global food security, public health and environmental stability. "A film that should be seen as widely as possible ... scrupulous, thorough and damning."
"A cogent and horrifying enough picture of the world's leading seed manufacturer to warrant concern and fury." — Malcolm Fraser, Montreal Mirror
"A devastating expose ... will freeze the blood in your veins." — Meg Hewings, Hour.ca
"The impact of seeing this film is enormously powerful and motivating. Educate yourself and alert others about the health dangers of GMOs." — John Griffin, The Gazette
Comes with a bonus DVD and CD:
Your Milk on Drugs-Just Say No! (DVD) — a film by Jeffrey M. Smith. Dairy products from cows treated with Monsanto's genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (rBGH or rBST) may sharply increase cancer risk and other diseases, especially in children. Don't Put That in Your Mouth (CD) — a speech by Jeffrey M. Smith. You'll want to stop eating genetically modified foods after you learn how they're linked to toxic and allergic reactions, sick, sterile, and dead livestock and damage to virtually every organ studied in lab animals.
