“Exposed: the great [genetically modified] crops myth”

“Exposed: the great GM crops myth: Major new study shows that modified soya produces 10 per cent less food than its conventional equivalent”

I’m so happy to see this. Will be interesting to hear from those of you who prefer to see hard-core scientific proof and numbers behind everything.

Finally, part of the PR veil is parting…  Although one could argue this veil has been see-through for a loooong time, which I believe it has.

I don’t need this article to tell me a little bit using a few numbers  (even if it is well researched) when my body already knows a lot about the effects of GM foods.

If you want to learn more, one way would be to watch The Future of Food, a documentary parting the veil even further: http://www.thefutureoffood.com/synopsis.htm

Another movie opening soon is Fresh. Watch a trailer here: www.freshthemovie.com

From their site:

Synopsis of “Fresh”

FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.

Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur’s 2008 Genius Award; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma; and supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.

I’ll be at the June 12th showing & speaker panel event in San Francisco. Check here to see whether there’s a showing in a city near you:

Hope to see you there! Stay real.
