13 min. GMO's The Moment of truth ?
Since 2008, professor Gilles-Eric SERALINI and his team have secretly been conducting a series of tests on the corn NK603 which is produced by Monsanto. The first results are alarming and have cast a shadow on the innocuousness of genetically modified products in general. This independent study, unique due to its amplitude and duration, has benefited from exceptional technical and financial means. Over a two year period, we filmed its progress in its entirety.
Gilles-Eric SERALINI tells us about the origins of his research, the methods that were used, the difficulties encountered, the financing and the necessary element of secrecy that surrounded his laboratory. He comments on and explains the footage shot during the entirety of the experiment, GMO's The Moment of truth ? also deals with the credibility issues of the scientific expertise, the lack of transparency shown by the food security agencies and the influence that the industrial lobbies have on the political world.
After years of doubts and polemics, are we finally going to know the truth about GMO's? Would we then be faced with a public health scandal concerning the world in its entirety?
