The other night I finally had the pleasure of watching the documentary The Future of Food. The film is an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade. While I have already seen The World According To Monsanto (my first eye opening movie viewership into the scary world of GMOs), I never cease to be amazed, frightened and angered about this topic. If this is the future: be afraid, very afraid.
However, The Future of Food did not leave me completely filled with “doom and gloom.” I am always the optimist. As I’ve said before, I have to believe that as consumers we can change where things are headed. We have to have loud voices to educate fellow consumers, to force GMO labeling, to stand up against the corporations. No, not an easy task by any means, but important nonetheless.
For further education about GMOs and what we can do as concerned consumers I recommend visiting: Say No To GMOs. The The Future of Food website also has links to ways we can get involved.
Here’s the trailer for The Future of Food.
Check out Food, Inc. too!
The DVD is sitting on my coffee table. I cannot wait to watch it!
