Scientists Under Attack: Genetic Engineering in the Magnetic Field of Money

Is the biotech industry trying to “engineer” the truth and hide things from the public?

~~

Arpad Pusztai and Ignacio Chapela have two things in common. They are distinguished scientists and their careers are in ruins. Both scientists chose to look at the phenomenon of genetic engineering. Both made important discoveries. Both of them are suffering the fate of those who criticize the powerful vested interests that now dominate big business and scientific research. Statements made by scientists themselves prove that 95% of the research in the area of genetic engineering is paid by the industry. Only 5% of the research is independent. The big danger for freedom of science and our democracy is evident. Can the public still trust our scientists? This is a documentary thriller about how agro-chemical multinational corporations victimize international scientists to prevent them from publishing their disturbing findings.
