You do not have to believe that God exists, but you will after this movie know that the devil poster! Monsanto is the largest global company that produces agricultural products: pesticides, hormones in raising animals, and genetically modified soybean seeds, corn and other crops. Monsanto has made some of the toxins that are responsible for many diseases, cancer, dementia and the rules are and say Napalm was used in the Vietnam War or PCB oils of which turned out to be a carcinogen as a small atomic bomb.Written by
David Carpenter, Ph.D.:
We all have PCBs in our bodies, the polar bears and the penguins have PCBs, and what has happened is that in the past there were a few sites where PCBs where released, but over time they have gone into the air, they've gone into the water, they've transported so that the whole world is now contaminated with PCBs. The issue is that *many* diseases are caused by PCB exposure; the one everyone knows about is cancer.

An Honest Review
This came out of France, and that should be shocking given the quality of it and their history with documentaries. They aren't exactly the BBC, they aren't really known for films like this...but I also live in the English speaking world so, some of them could be lost in translation.
However, the production values are fairly high for a French Documentary.
Another interesting note is that this was released in 2008 during a rash of conspiracy theories involving the company as a whole and GMOs in general, and it handled it in a very even and fair way without really buying into Alex Jones style media frenzy that surrounded the topic at the time.
That being said, it did make some very good points about the negative effects on farming as a whole and the cost that these things put on private farmers who can't keep seed for the next year.
However, it's take on what GMOs are and how they are made was dealt with vaguely and partially inaccurate. Without getting into details, it placed too much emphasis on one singular side of the debate to the point where the science wasn't exactly inaccurate, but more along the lines of cherry picked to fit the thesis, which shouldn't have a place in a documentary.
Other than that, it was a fairly fair film, even if it was, from the get-go, intended to be a hit-piece, it was a mostly honest hit-piece.
