“GMOs: the moment of truth?”�

This 13-minute film focuses on the CRIIGEN study. It presents the conditions in which the study was carried out in a context where Monsanto did not allow any independent study to be made with its seeds. The research was conducted secretly, but everything was done according to good laboratory practices. Professor Gilles Eric Seralini and Doctor Joel Spiroux explain why this study is the first of its kind. It goes much further than all other studies in terms of the research period (two years instead of the three-month maximum limit). We are shown the method and the flagrant results in the sketches. The mortality rate is six times higher with transgenic food, as well as with Roundup alone. We see the many glaring tumors with which the rats are affected. The images are shocking. It is asked that these studies be replicated for all GMOs that have already been licensed.
A moratorium on all agricultural and food GMOs is demanded.




“GMOs and us”

This 90-minute film provides information on the CRIIGEN study (conditions and results) as well as understanding on how this was able to come about. A long road was travelled to meet with officials in Brussels: Commissioner Dali, director of EFSA, the GMO risk-assessment agency in Brussels, who is in charge of this issue for the European Commission, and the pro-GMO lobby. We gain greater comprehension of the logic behind this all, the role of pro-GMO lobbies, and the reasoning of pro-GMO scientists such as Professor Fellous, who does not understand that one-, two-, or three-month studies should even be requested… The film also introduces us to political figures such as Corinne Lepage and Marie-Christine Blandin, who share their experience, and to scientists who are more critical of GMOs: Jacques Testard and Fr�d�ric Jacquemart, in particular, who lead us to understand the limits of current knowledge on these issues.
