We are told genetic foods are safe but in this documentary we are told something very different, and what we are told in this docu We are told genetic foods are safe but in this documentary we are told something very different, and what we are told in this documentary is backed up by shocking facts. The connections between Monsanto and the FDA are very alarming, many highly influential politicians have worked for and or have tie with Monsanto. We are told that the FDA can be trusted but when you look at the facts they prove they can't when it comes to Monsanto. Look at this: Clarence Thomas Prior to being the Supreme Court Judge who put George W. Bush in office, Clarence Thomas was Monsanto's lawyer, Anne Veneman, Former US Secretary of Agriculture Anne Veneman was on the Board of Directors of Monsanto's Calgene Corporation, Donald Rumsfeld Secretary of Defense was on the Board of Directors of Monsanto's Searle pharmaceuticals, Tommy Thompson Former US Secretary of Health received $50,000 in donations from Monsanto during his winning campaign for Wisconsin's governor and the two congressmen receiving the most donations from Monsanto during the 2000 election were Larry Combest (Former Chairman of the House Agricultural Committee) and Missouri senate candidate John Ashcroft is Attorney General.

In order for the FDA to determine if Monsanto's growth hormones were safe or not, Monsanto was required to submit a scientific report on that topic. Margaret Miller, one of Monsanto's researchers put the report together. Shortly before the report submission, Miller left Monsanto and was hired by the FDA. Her first job for the FDA was to determine whether or not to approve the report she wrote for Monsanto. In short, Monsanto approved its own report. Assisting Miller was another former Monsanto researcher, Susan Sechen. Deciding whether or not rBGH-derived milk should be labeled fell under the jurisdiction of another FDA official, Michael Taylor, who previously worked as a lawyer for Monsanto.
