The documentary GMO OMG by Jeremy Seifert is a film that attempts to raise questions about Genetically Modified Organisms. I have mixed feeling on the film because there are plenty of health concerns brought up, but in doing my own research I cannot find any real studies on the health risks, but plenty of reasons why there is nothing to worry about. These doubts come from the fact that humans have been genetically modifying food since the beginning of agriculture and have been eating genetically modified food for a long time. (A great YouTube video by SciShow called "Why are GMOs bad?" provided good information on genetically engineered organisms). From interviewing my girlfriend, she explained that genetically modified food is not a big concern, but should still require tests for health risks. A statistic that 5.3 billion pounds of pesticides was in use when the film was made, but I have a hard time equating statistics to reality without context, which the film does not clarify. What was most intriguing was patenting and soil erosion. The film explains that companies patent genetic sequences that they have incorporated into their seeds and so the seeds must be bought every year, saving these seeds is illegal. While I understand the economics of high research costs versus funds, it brings a strange idea into play, "These people are trying to patent nature." says one of the farmers from the documentary. Soil erosion was also introduced as being increased because of genetically modified crops, I could not find much about this from my own research, so it does raise questions. While the maker, Seifert, makes overplayed use of emotions by having his own kids dramatize issues from the film, it ultimately is about questioning the unknowns of our lives. I would advise against taking this movie too seriously about every one of its claims, a healthy skepticism however on the producers part is appreciated.
