Consumed movie full length review - A misinformed anti-GMO tract pretending to be a "thriller"

Consumed, a film by Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones stars Lister- Jones as a single mom barely holding it together as she tries find out why her son has developed mysterious symptoms.

Needless to say, the cause turns out to be "GMOs" even though not a single verifiable instance of any human or animal reaction to transgenic crops has ever been reported. The film contains every single anti-GMO trope you have ever heard, all of them wrong.

Wein describes his film as a "political thriller," but "science fiction" might be a better label. The trouble is that good science fiction starts with actual science and extends it plausibly. This movie starts with bad science fears and continually hits you over the head with them. There has never been any reported evidence of any ill effect on humans or animals by any bio tech crop.

The idea that "GMOs" are an ingredient rather than a breeding technique pervades the movie. And the mantra that there have "never been any human tests" repeats several times. Foods are never tested on humans, (as Katiraee explains) because you cannot control a human diet the way you can control lab animals' diets. The films also claims that there are only 90 day studies done and no long term studies have been done. This contradicts the well-known study by Snell and Bernheim, which did review many long term studies and concluded the 90-day studies were indeed sufficient. And, of course, van Eenenaam and Young's billion animal retrospective feeding study clearly show that there are no long term effects on using GM versus non-GM animals feeds.
