In his new film, “Scientists Under Attack: Genetic Engineering in the Magnetic Field of Money,” German director Bertram Verhaag tells the story of two distinguished scientists—Árpád Pusztai and Ignacio Chapela—whose careers both lie in ruins because they dared to challenge the Gene Giants.

According to the film, about 95 percent of the research in the field of genetic engineering is funded by—you guessed it—the biotech industry. And that industry, led by Monsanto, Dow and Dupont—have a history of attacking the credibility of any researcher or scientist who challenges the corporate line that GMOs, and the toxic chemicals used to grow them, are safe.

It’s a situation that threatens science, public health and our democracy.
