New Movie Explores Dangers of Chemicals in Farming




Cinema Libre Studio recently released Genetically Modified Children on DVD, VOD and at screening events in North America. The movie explores how Monsanto chemicals might permanently alter a child’s genes and how low-income tobacco farmers face skyrocketing cancer rates with more devastating repercussions affecting their children, including severe physical deformities and mental disabilities.

Choosing between poverty or poison, Latin American growers have no choice but to use harmful chemicals, such as the herbicide glyphosate (aka Monsanto’s Roundup) and Bayer’s insecticide Confidor, if they want to certify and sell their crops to Big Tobacco.

As patent and regulatory laws continue to favor the profits of Monsanto and chemical companies, the tobacco makes its way into the hands and mouths of consumers worldwide in Philip Morris products, while the poisons used to harvest the crops contaminate the farmers’ blood and are modifying the human genome, creating genetically modified children.
