I never knew that there was a such a huge increase in how much we used pesticides. In 1945 there were 200 million pounds of pesticides that were used. In 2000 there were 5.1 billion pounds of pesticides that had been used. This increase resulted in 500 different types of bugs being resisted to pesticides. These numbers were necessary because they showed how pesticides were impacting nature.
When I had done my own research at home I had a vague since of how accurate the information was. I was not sure that the source was credible. In this documentary you get to hear the phone calls, not all of them but bits of pieces. He’s phoning the companies directly. He talks to farmers, scientist, and people from the GMO industry making the sources seem much more credible then the ones that we see online.
This would be a movie that I would suggest to anybody that is looking to find out some interesting facts about GMOS. Although it is low budget it still gives you valuable information that could help you deciding on the decision to live a GMO free life or one with them.
