Today's Guest: Documentary filmmaker Jeremy Seifert, director of GMO OMG, talks about what's in our food.Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of agri-chemical lobbyists and the politicians who follow their voting instructions and talking points to the letter… in the NEW new media capital of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida!
Jeremy Seifert’s oldest son likes seeds. He’s fascinated by their variety of colors, shapes, sizes and function.
Jeremy Seifert and his wife, Jen, want to raise healthy children and be healthy themselves. But the more the Seiferts learned about GMOs – genetically modified organisms – the less confident they became that they could control the kinds of foods—and ingredients—they served their kids.
In his new documentary film, GMO OMG, Seifert takes his
family—and us—on a long and winding and torturous trip to discover
whether genetically modified foods are safe or even unavoidable.
His results are chilling.
JEREMY SEIFERT podcast excerpt: "Like an idiot, I assumed the FDA and the EPA were looking out for us. But that's a very naive view of the world... We've had this experience with the lead industry, with the tobacco industry, with the banking system and that failure. We should question this. We've had the experience of being lied to over and over and over again because they're trying to protect themselves and they're trying to make money and they'll do anything to keep that going for as long as possible."

If you are currently or have ever raised children, you know how challenging it is to get young people to eat good food and make smart dietary choices. But whether you shop at Whole Foods or Publix, Fresh Market or Kroger, it’s not as easy as paying a little more for organics.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
GMO OMG debuted at the Berlin Film Festival and is beginning its theatrical release in New York City, Los Angeles and Seattle in September 2013. The film has attracted the support of several celebrities, including An Inconvenient Truth producer Laurie David--ex-wife of “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” creator Larry David, actors Glenn Howerton and Kaitlin Olsen of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” Kristin Bauer Van Straten of “True Blood, ” and executive producer Elizabeth Kucinich, wife of former Democratic U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich. The film was also supported by a Kickstarter campaign.
