A new documentary film that claims to set the record straight on genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) has been exposed as a propaganda piece that aims for nothing more than to advance the agenda of chemical and biotechnology companies. Narrated by fake science icon Neil deGrasse Tyson, Food Evolution is backed and funded by a who’s who list of some of the most outspoken industry shills and violent psychopaths who will stop at nothing to spread more of their poison throughout the world.
One of these is Jon Entine, a known propagandist and corporate puppet who has moved in and out of positions at major corporations that profit from the sale of chemical poisons. As revealed at TruthWiki.org, Entine has all sorts of ties to big names like Monsanto, Syngenta, and the American Council on Science and Health (ACSH), which functions as a mouthpiece for Big Junk Food.
Representing household names like Coca-Cola, Kellogg’s, General Mills, PepsiCo, and the American Beverage Association (ABA), ACSH is hardly interested in telling the truth about the GMOs that its member corporations add to their products. In fact, the ACSH has invested lots of money and time to censor this information, and yet the organization has direct ties to the new Food Evolution film via Entine.
Entine, in case you didn’t know, has a very sordid past that involves violently lashing out against his now-ex-wife and threatening to sue his daughter’s therapist for providing her with therapy sessions. Entine doesn’t like anyone who opposes his chemical-pushing narrative, and is on the record as having engaged in “revenge journalism” against his opponents.
“Entine takes a ‘hit man’ approach to single out individuals – especially critics of GMOs – for accusations and abuse, often calling them names or implying they are sociopaths or a danger to society,” explains TruthWiki.org.

Also backing Food Evolution are groups like the Institute for Food Technologists (IFT), a front group for the biotechnology industry that, at the time of the film’s conceptual launch, was headed by former DuPont and Monsanto executive Janet Collins. When Collins left IFT, only to be replaced by another industry shill by the name of Cindy Stewart, who also works for DuPont, Collins went on to work for CropLife America, a trade association for the pesticide industry.
Correspondences obtained by USRTK reveal that the original minds behind the Food Evolution project were executives at Monsanto, including Eric Sachs who wrote in December 2013 to a group of PR advisors that there was “clearly a lot of interest” in producing a documentary film. Though that film wasn’t named, it is obvious from reading his memo that Food Evolution is the result of that.
From planning to production, a cohort of fake science lunatics were brought on board to be featured in the film, including another Monsanto employee by the name of Robb Fraley who declares to a woman asking a questions about glyphosate, Monsanto’s most prized chemical herbicide (Roundup), that any science linking it to birth defects or cancer is automatically “pseudoscience.”
Even worse, there is a “farmer” featured in the film who declares that glyphosate has “very, very low toxicity.” He even goes so far as to declare that glyphosate’s toxicity is “lower than coffee, (and) lower than salt.” Anyone who’s studied the issue knows these statements can only be described as the insane ramblings of a madman, and yet this type of derangement is presented as being completely valid in Food Evolution.
