“Genetic engineering (GE) of our food supply amounts to a massive science experiment being performed on mankind, without consent or full disclosure. Although the biotech industry continues to claim GE products are safe, the truth is that no one knows what the long-term effects will be, because no one has done the necessary studies.
The loudest proponents of GE are the ones who stand to profit the most, and they don’t seem terribly concerned about the human or environmental costs.
What do we know for certain? We know genetic engineering is riddled with unpredictable effects… so we should expect the unexpected.
You may not realize that this reckless genetic experimentation is not limited to your food supply. Besides being used to create drugs and “Frankenfish,” they’ve also created vaccine-containing bananas, goats that produce spider silk in their milk, venomous cabbage, chemotherapy chicken eggs, and even glow-in-the-dark cats.
As creepy as some of these things are, the application that may have the greatest potential for global disaster are GE trees created to serve the desires of the paper industry.”

As you’ve read in several of my prior posts, this is exactly what we’re facing in rural Brazil:
So now, I’m asking you to help me raise funds for the translation of “Silent Forest” narrated by scientist David Suzuki. Our field partners need to better understand what they’re up against, and then decide how they want to respond to the information.
Will you help us to crowdfund the Portuguese translation and subtitling of “Silent Forest”? What you see below are a series of segments of the entire one hour film.
