Description

Lifts the veil of secrecy to reveal exactly what is going on down on the farm and on the supermarket shelf. Cutting through both corporate rhetoric and government misinformation, it lays bare the dark culture that permeates biotechnology, as well as who stands to benefit from this Faustian tinkering with the very stuff of life. Unashamedly critical, Farmageddon deals head-on with the 21st century equivalent of the nuclear industry. It also demonstrates that biotechnology can be resisted. It will appeal to all who value healthy food and a healthy society.
