Keep up with the latest news and comment on genetically modified foods          

Food safety videos

Look out for an interesting interview with researcher Prof Gilles-Eric Seralini. Jeffrey Smith, author of the books Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette, is one of the best communicators on GM food safety - or the lack of it. His trilogy of films on the topic are all worth watching and provide a great introduction to the subject for friends, educators, and decision-makers. Here’s a review of the set, under its alternative title, Hidden dangers in kids' meals.

GMO, Global Alert

French researchers' secret two-years study of 200 rats fed with transgenic maize. Rats formed large tumors and suffered premature death and organ damage when given levels of GMO feed claimed to be safe by EU regulatory authorities. A bomb for the GMO industry. (Time: 12.50)

What's in What You Eat?: Food Safety in a New Ecology

How can we be sure our food is safe? Environmental attorney Andrew Kimbrell and natural-food advocates Benedikt Haerlin and Helen Holder discuss major threats to the world's food supply, from bioterrorism to the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), in the third session of the conference The Future of Food: Transatlantic Perspectives. (Time: 1:40:03)

Dr Don Huber warns of a new pathogen linked with Roundup Ready (GMO) corn

On 17 January 2011, internationally recognised plant pathologist Dr. Don Huber, wrote a letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack warning of the discovery of a new pathogen and a possible link between Roundup Ready (GMO) corn and soybeans and severe reproductive problems in livestock as well as widespread crop failure. Less than 3 weeks later, the Obama administration approved 2 new Roundup Ready® GMO crops, set to be planted this spring. (Time: 19:51)

Dr Mira Shiva on the health effects of GM foods

Dr Mira Shiva is a medical doctor and public health activist in India. She gave her feedback to public hearings on the introduction of Bt Brinjal (aubergine) in India. In February 2010, the Indian Government made a decision to halt the commercial production of GM Bt brinjal/aubergine/eggplant, which contains an insecticidal toxin protein from the soil bacterium Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis). In this video taken at Navdanya, Dehradun, India, Dr Mira Shiva speaks about her feedback to the public hearings on Bt Brinjal. (Time: 13:57)

GM soy in animal feed: Greetings from Monsanto

Excellent short German documentary, with English subtitles, about the effects of glyphosate-tolerant GM soy cultivation in South America and the import of GM soy animal feed into Europe. Includes interviews with researchers, Prof Andres Carrasco, and Prof Gilles-Eric Seralini. (Time: 7:51)

Great American Food Experiment

International best-selling author Jeffrey M Smith (Seeds of Deception, GMO Trilogy, and Genetic Roulette) joins Alex Bogusky and his father Bill for a sobering conversation about America's food supply. What regulations are in place to protect you and your family? The answers may shock you and hopefully make you rethink your choices as a consumer. (Time: 54:49)

Jeffrey Smith's Trilogy on GM Food Safety

This explosive exposé reveals what the biotech industry doesn't want you to know – how industry manipulation and political collusion, not sound science, allow dangerous genetically engineered food into your daily diet. Company research is rigged, alarming evidence of health dangers is covered up, and intense political pressure applied. (Total time: 1:50:13)

Engineered Poison Lurking in Your Everyday Food?

In this interview, Jeffrey Smith, author of the bestseller Seeds of Deception, explains how genetically modified foods cause health problems, and their potential for creating a vast array of unforeseen and surprising illnesses. (Total time 44:58)

Prof. Seralini Interviewed about Organ Damage from GM Maize

This is an interview with Prof. Gilles-Eric Séralini, the leader of the research team from the Committee of Independent Research and Information on Genetic Engineering (CRIIGEN) and the Universities of Caen and Rouen which obtained Monsanto's confidential raw data of its 2002 feeding trials on rats, after a European court made it public in 2005. The data "clearly underlines adverse impacts on kidneys and liver, the dietary detoxifying organs, as well as different levels of damages to heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system," reported Prof. Séralini, a molecular biologist at the University of Caen. Their December 2009 study appeared in the International Journal of Biological Sciences (IJBS). (Time: 9:38)

The Idiot Cycle Trailer

"The Idiot Cycle": The companies that make cancer treatment pharmaceuticals also make the chemicals that cause cancer. Now they also make GMOs and cover up the health risks. Feature length documentary produced by Emmanuelle Schick Garcia and Laila Tahhar. Website: www.theidiotcycle.com (Time: 3:17)

Whats Wrong with GMOs

By now most people know that GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organisms. But how do GMOs affect us, the food we eat, and the environment? Jeffrey Smith, founder of the Institute for Responsible Technology provides a solid general overview in this interview. More Smith videos here. (Time: 44:10)

Press Conference on Risks of GMO Maize MON863

Press conference by Greenpeace and CRIIGEN in Berlin on March 13, 2007 on the risks involved in the feeding of Monsanto's GM maize MON863. Rats who were fed the maize developed problems in their livers and kidneys and became ill. Nevertheless the maize is considered safe for humans by European authorities. (Time: 4:09)

Everything You Have to Know about Dangerous Genetically Modified Foods

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in your food may make you sick. Studies link GMOs with toxins, allergies, infertility, infant mortality, immune dysfunction, stunted growth, accelerated aging, and death. Whistleblowers were fired, threatened, and gagged. Warnings by FDA scientists were ignored. Expert Jeffrey M. Smith, author of the #1 GMO bestseller Seeds of Deception, and Genetic Roulette, presents SHOCKING evidence why these gene-spliced crops may lead to health and environmental catastrophes. Learn how to protect yourself and discover the Campaign for Healthier Eating in America – a brilliant plan to quickly end the genetic engineering of our food supply. (Time: 1:24:44)
