Monsanto, Monsanto, Monsanto

This weekend I attended a Friday Night Docs screening of The World According to Monsanto with my friend D. I'd seen it before, but it was a first screening for him. I've written about the documentary here before; it covers a lot of the same ground that Vanity Fair did in its own Monsanto exposé back in May. It's about as must-see as any documentary gets for a) anyone who eats, and b) anyone who's not entirely familiar with the issues concerning genetically modified organisms.

It's all over the internet and response to it seems to range from mild shock to outrage.

I've been debating about seeing this (I want to know, but I also want to be able to sleep at night!).

I suppose I'll go.

I dunno. I think you'd sleep better "in the know", y'know? At least that way, you can sorta consume accordingly.

Seriously, though... It's mostly an overview of what Monsanto is all about and what sort of trail they've left behind themselves as they've evolved into their current legal entity. It's good stuff.
