The World According to Monsanto

This excellent film by French journalist Marie-Monique Robin is subtitled “A documentary that Americans won’t ever see” which sadly, is probably quite true. Originally aired on French television (ARTE – French-German cultural TV channel) last month, the documentary describes how gigantic biotech corporation Monsanto exploited the deregulation craze of the Reagan administration to gain FDA approval for genetically modified crops and milk additives and explores in detail how its GM products are threatening to destroy the agricultural biodiversity which has served mankind for thousands of years.
