~ Special thanks to the Film Board of Canada's Film, “The World According to Monsanto” (2008), which this research was modeled after~ People now lives in a world where they are unsure of the foods that they eat. Do they know what they are really eating? Where it came from? How it arrived on their plate? 70% of corn and 90% of soy products in our modern farmlands and crop fields are now genetically modified.. If a person randomly buys a food product from a grocery store, he/she would have a 70% chance of buying a genetically modified product, according to Dr. Joseph Mercola from a one his web articles. One should ask on his/her next meal, “Is this food that I'm going to eat genetically modified or not? Is it safe?” Around 90% of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO), such as corn and soybeans, are under the control of a big multinational company. The multinational company that is responsible for these GMO products is called Monsanto. Monsanto was founded in St. Louis, Missouri in 1901 that primarily became one of the biggest chemical industry of the 20 th century. The Film Board of Canada's film titled The World According to Monsanto (2008) stated that as soon as GMOs were released to the public consumers, GMO foods quickly dominated two thirds of the food industry. Monsanto is a big, corrupted company that poisons not only everyone's health in the globe, but also the environment and the political/regulatory system. The Congress needs to consider changing the law, or creating some form of policy, or make a mandatory notification system to make sure that every product is looked at by the FDA, with only the intent of making sure that the foods are safe for public consumption. Something needs to be done before every single person is under the control of multinationals. Monsanto products need to be regulated at the very least, or banned due to hazards that these products bring to our health. The company itself should be sued because of severe pollution without notice, pushing their products into the economy, unlabeled GMOs that could pose serious threat on humans, and, also, because of severe, other degrees of pollutions, and unfair treatment of the farmers. Monsanto claims to be a company that aims for better “Food, health, and hope.” However, according to Monsanto’s classified, confidential archives, Monsanto states, “We can’t afford to lose one dollar of business.” Well, all business needs money to function (and may also uphold the same idea of not wanting to lose one dollar worth of business), but what makes Monsanto special to be placed under the spotlight of suspicion and questioning? Their definition of not being able to afford to lose “one dollar of business” includes hiding decades worth of pollution from the public around the area where they have dumped their poisonous, toxic wastes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
