Synopsis: Today in the United States, by the simple acts of feeding ourselves, we are unwittingly participating in the largest experiment ever conducted on human beings. Each of us unknowingly consumes genetically engineered food on a daily basis. The risks and effects to our health and the environment are largely unknown. Yet more and more studies are being conducted around the world, which only provide even more reason for concern. We are the oblivious guinea pigs for wide-scale experimentation of modern biotechnology. GMO OMG tells the story of a fathers discovery of GMOs in relationship to his 3 young children and the world around him. We still have time to heal the planet, feed the world, and live sustainably. But we have to start now!

The Peace of Wild Things.

"When despair for the world

grows in me

"and I wake in the

night at the least sound,

"in fear of what my life

and my children's lives may be.

"I go and lie down

where the wood drake rests

"in his beauty on the water,

and the great heron feeds.

"I come into the peace

of wild things

"who do not tax their lives

with forethought of grief.

"I come into the presence

of still water.

"And I feel above me

the day-blind stars,

"waiting with their light.

"For a time, I rest in

the grace of the world,

and am free."

Having children

makes you start seeing

everything differently.

It's the first time

that either my wife, Jen, or I

had to feed someone

besides ourselves.

You have a little life to

nourish and look out for.

And that responsibility made us

think more about food

than we ever had before.

And so did my son,

Finn's obsession with seeds.

When he was 3 years old,

he thought himself

how to write letters

by copying seed names

out of a Seed Savers

Exchange catalog.

He's 6 now and has

been collecting seeds

for half his life.

Finn helped me take my

first real look at a seed.

He taught his

little brother Scout, too,

and I know he'll share

his love with his sister, Pearl.

His wonder filled me

with wonder.

Which plant will make

a lot of seeds?

That's how simple it is.

It's like every time you

just plant one seed,

it will like grow into a plant

and it produces like

thousands of seeds.

It's crazy.

It's hard enough

just raising a family,

but then, all these

unexpected issues complicate

what's already so exhausting.

You find out about toxic

chemicals in your house,

asbestos in the walls,

BPA in baby bottles,

methyl iodide on

strawberries, lead in toys,

arsenic and heavy metals

in tap water,

antibiotics in meat,

flame retardant from furniture

and breast milk.

Everything causes cancer

and it's all subtle,

hidden, latent.

We tried to be awake and

make good decisions,

to look out for our children

and do our best for them,

but one thing we totally missed.

We just never heard about it

was GMOs,

genetically modified organisms.

Seeds much like

my son Finn's seeds

but with altered genes

and they are in our food

for either good or ill,

I didn't know,

but it bothered me

that we are eating them

and didn't even know

what they were.

I decided to see if anyone

else knew about GMOs,

and that was the beginning

of a very long journey.

We're doing a

documentary on food.

- Okay.

- What people eat.

I'm wondering if you eat GMOs?

I don't even know what that is.

Give me one second.

Hey, girls.

How are you doing?

I got henna tattoo

right over there.

GMO, what's that?

I don't know what they are.

What is that?

I don't even know what it is.

What the hell is that?

What is it?


What's that?

Genetically modified organism.


So, you don't know.

They don't know.

I don't know.

Nobody knows.

Like, cattle, chicken?

I eat anything.

Any hot chicks eat them?

No, I'm not sure because

I don't know what they are.

Does it taste good?

What are GMOs?

GMO, I don't know what it is.

That would not help me.

I don't know.

Don't ask me that stuff.

Like, I don't know.

Ask her.

Do you eat that?

What are they?

Genetically... um...

Man, I'm lost.

OK, how do we know

if eat it or not?

I heard something about

strawberries with fish

or something like that.

It's like gen... genetically

made something,

I know, but I don't

know what the O is.

I don't know what they are.

I don't know what that is.

Genetically modified... organic?
