The World According to Monsanto

I just watched a documentary called The World According to Monsanto. You can probably guess from the name what it's about. I learned a lot of interesting and scary things, and lots of things I already knew. Did you know that the idea that GMO crops are 'substantially equivalent' to their conventional counterparts is totally made up? Or that rBGH gives cows mastitis and puts pus and IGF-1 in the milk? Or that small farmers across the globe have their families' health and business in danger because of GMO crops? Or even that Monsanto started out as a chemical company, not an agricultural one? Watch the film here:
