The Peril On Your Plate – Watch the New RT Documentary on GMOs and Glyphosate Here

Posted on May 24 2018 - 12:31am by Sustainable Pulse

In the quest for answers, RTD’s Ekaterina Yakovleva embarks on a journey to meet the people who lift the lid on the perils of GMOs and the chemicals used in the industry.

The investigation takes her to India, where farmers have been driven to suicide in futile attempts to grow modified seeds and the pressure of huge loans from the agrochemical companies. Ekaterina meets renowned environmentalist Vandana Shiva, who is raising awareness and storing local crop varieties, discarded by the ‘green revolution’.

In the UK, the fight against GMO means the commercial planting of genetically engineered crops is banned. However, campaigners fear GM experiments may threaten conventional crops.

Glyphosate-based weedkillers and other chemicals also cause concern among anti-GMO activists. The team meets Margaret, Countess of Mar, a member of the House of Lords and a former farmer, who suffered from chemical use.

A robust movement against GMO flourishes in the US, the world’s leader in the GM production. Ekaterina meets ‘Moms across America’, who beat the drum for honest product labelling.

To explore the dangers of the GMO industry, watch RTD’s ‘The Peril on Your Plate.’

    (States, nations, People’s & Planet’s savings from not losing health / trying to regain health & loss of life/ecology by not supporting subsidy&price supports with such mounting legacy of costs due to many biocides applications……. the savings from not publicly funding (and outright ban of more biocides and gm food / organisms) would be huge in not continuing this destructive path. That savings will fund healthy agriculture and healthy employment / working conditions, organics / biodynamic regenerative provides true health and “costs” much less in money in the long run…. and yes, it is much cheaper than fighting going to grave / funerals earlier.
