This is a short on GM food (genetically modified, not Chevrolet). It is quick paced and interesting. One part of the video discusses a seed genetically modified by Monsanto that uses a protein to produce its own pesticide. This seed MON863 was approved for human consumption in 2006 in Australia, Canada, China, the European Union, Japan, Mexico, the Philippines, and the United States. Both the USDA and the FDA do not mandate that genetically modified foods be labeled as such. Studies have shown that the GM corn causes liver and kidney toxicity as well as hormonal imbalances in rats. In some cases the toxins in this corn cause cell walls to perforate. (you can’t make this stuff up)
