If you know me (even a little bit)…. or have read any of my blog posts about food (even just glimpsed at them), then you know how I feel about organics vs GMO’s. I do everything I can to make ensure I consume zero GMO’s…. for me… and for my daughter. And of course, I always recommend you do the same.

I don’t want TV. (I don’t own a TV). I never watch movies. I don’t have the patience for them, and I find most movies to be filled with a lot of redundant crap. But I do love a good documentary, more specifically: all food documentaries. I found this video via Pacing The Panic Room and it really got a hold of my attention and a bit of my emotions too. Ryan’s blog is spectacular (yes, spectacular), check it out &read: THIS POST by Ryan. I can relate 100% to his thoughts and feelings involved in the post. I won’t get into the whole organics schbang again, or rant about my hate and disgust in Monsanto…. I’ll just let you watch the video for yourself, and hope it sparks some interest and curiosity in you as well. I hope you always consider the food you are putting into your body, and more importantly: your children’s bodies.

Seriously, it’s simple: No processed foods. No gmo’s. Yes organics.


  1. oh! so about this: i live in europe teaching english and was recently asked to speak on the topic "GMOs in america" to a 12th grade class in germany. from what i was told (and i haven't quite researched this yet so i could be misinformed) the FDA in germany is so strict (and, evidently, not corrupt) that foods containing GMOs are completely banned in germany. the students kept asking me, "have you ever eaten foods with GMOs?" and every time i said, "yes…everyone in america has at least once, i'm sure.", they were shocked, horrified, repulsed, etc.

  2. i love reading your food posts – i dont do as much as id like to regarding really being aware of what me and my daughter eat. this may be a silly question but how do you know if something has gmo's in it? i should just avoid all processed foods all together i guess.

  3. so great! thanks! and i shared it right away…
    i live in germany and monsanto just started new "seeding-campaigns" over here so it's great to teach the people about the importance of organic food {something i'm really passionate about already}


  4. I love this video- I've seen it a few times before, it's great to get the word out to people who really don't know what this stuff is.

  5. Thanks for sharing this Drea. I'm also a lover of documentaries on food and this one looks exceptional. Definitely makes me want to re-strengthen my commitment to organics.

  6. thanks for sharing. we are about to introduce solids to our baby so this strikes a particular cord… thanks for sharing!

    p.s. love your blog and your little marlowe is darling 🙂

  7. 🙂 thanks for the nice words and so cool for the film makers that this has been getting passed around. I have my fingers crossed that they hit their Kickstarter goal in time.

  8. listen, you are lucky you don't have or want tv. we have netflix, and there are so many documentaries about this and other issues similar, and i get SUCKED IN!!

    this is me: "oh, another doc about how shitty monsanto is! LET'S WATCH IT!" and then i'm mad for the rest of the day. Hey, bad decision, Kristin 😛

    anyway, preach it sister. lol!

  9. and this is why i love you, miss drea. i'm so glad you posted this.

    i'm going to be doing a weekly feature, "wake up wednesday" that focuses on topics like this and what crap people have been considering "food", and the reality of it all.

    you should watch Killer at Large, if you haven't already..

  10. I'm a new follower! I wanted to comment because I've finally gotten around to reading In Defense of Food (actually, reading it right now) and read Hope's Edge a couple of years ago and learned about the awfulness of Monsanto… so I'm excited to watch this!! 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
