“GMO OMG arguably does for genetically modified organisms what Al Gore’s 2006 Oscar-winning An Inconvenient Truth did for climate change.” — The Progressive
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?
Even those who have been paying close attention to these issues are likely to glean some new insight into the various branches of the matter.” — Village Voice
