Do genetically engineered food crops really offer the “risk-free” breadbasket for the world promised by biotechnology companies like Monsanto? “.....Marc Lappe and Britt Bailey provide an invaluable, scientifically-grounded skepticism of a global experiment with the world's food supply - an experiment that places the profits of agribusiness before human and environmental needs.” - Sheldon Krinsky, Prof., Dept Urban & Envir. Policy, Tufts University. This video raises questions about the safety of these practices - are there serious risks to human health and the ecosphere hidden in this silent revolution? “Against the Grain” will forever alter your walk down the grocery store isles! Includes a summary of the book upon which this video is based.
