Awesome Video!!

On March 11 a new documentary was aired on French television (ARTE – French-German cultural tv channel) by French journalist and film maker Marie-Monique Robin, The World According to Monsanto - A documentary that Americans won’t ever see.

Very good! It's an hour long---but even the first 5 minutes will ASTOUND you!! I kid you not!
By the way just in case you miss it or don't have time the film says Monsanto was sued in 1997 in the U.S and in 2007 in France for false claims. Roundup in these two countries can not be labeled as "biodegradable" because it has been proven that it IS NOT. Only 2% degrades in the first 28 days. So, how come people still think it is??

I've seen not only that, but "The Future of Food" (available from Netflix) and "King Corn" (recently on PBS). Even DH is getting into reading food labels (mostly avoiding corn syrup at this point) and has mostly stopped ribbing me about my expanding garden!

It is a really important video. And I still wonder why it's only now I'm becoming aware of these things. It stuns me I've been so unaware.
