GMO OMG

Today in the United States, by the simple acts of feeding ourselves, we are unwittingly participating in the largest experiment ever conducted on human beings. 

Each of us unknowingly consumes genetically engineered food on a daily basis. The risks and effects to our health and the environment are largely unknown. Yet more and more studies are being conducted around the world, which only provide even more reason for concern. 

We are the oblivious guinea pigs for wide-scale experimentation of modern biotechnology. 

GMO OMG tells the story of a fathers discovery of GMOs in relationship to his 3 young children and the world around him. 

We still have time to heal the planet, feed the world, and live sustainably. But we have to start now!-- written by anonymous

GMO OMG director and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? 

These and other questions take Seifert on a journey from his family’s table to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected. Along the way we gain insight into a question that is of growing concern to citizens the world over: what's on your plate? 7:00 PM, FVCC, Arts & Technology Bldg, RM 139 lower level. - See more at: http://www.gmofilm.com/#sthash.Cv9aIbgX.dpuf
