New documentary investigates war being waged by biotechnology companies against scientists who expose the truth about GMOs
by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) In order to maintain its massive charade of deception in claiming that genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) are the safe, practical solution to the world's food problems, the biotechnology industry has had to silence and destroy the lives of many in the scientific community. In the hard-hitting new documentary Scientists Under Attack - Genetic Engineering in the Magnetic Field of Money, German filmmaker Bertram Verhaag explores the heavy hand of the biotechnology industry in steering "science" towards its own interests, and eliminating the actual, legitimate science that exposes genetic engineering (GE) as the fraud that it is.
In the film, Verhaag speaks to various experts in the industry, including two scientists in particular whose lives have been ruined as a result of their inquiry into GE. Going against the flow, Arpad Pusztai and Ignacio Chapela questioned the "science" being peddled by the likes of Monsanto about GE, and instead sought to discover the real truth. In the process, they both ended up being threatened by the biotechnology industry and essentially losing their careers.
"The attack on scientists is very well-structured by the biotech industry," says one scientist in the film. "It's systematic. It's worldwide. It's very coordinated. It's part of the way they do business."
According to the scientists interviewed, roughly 95 percent of the published research involving GMOs has been conducted and paid for by the biotechnology industry. This means that only five percent of the available research on the subject has been conducted by independent research firms that are much more likely to have an honest, unbiased approach.
"No one gets up in the morning saying, 'I wanna go buy a genetically-engineered food.' They offer no benefits, no more nutrition, no more flavor, no nothing -- they only offer risks," says another expert. "They (biotechnology companies) did not want people to have that knowledge, and [did] not want them to have that choice. So this isn't just a story about science. This is a story about knowledge, democracy, and freedom of choice."
