Phoenix-area indie filmmaker Eric Battersby will be premiering the next episode of the GMO TRUTH, exclusively for The Cutting Board Café.
This episode, all about the Monsanto situation in Pima County AZ, includes footage from Monsanto’s public presentation on the facility they hope to build, and much more…
Eric, who attended and recorded 3 of the 5 hearings, will be there in person to premiere the video, deliver all the hard facts on the situation, and answer your questions.
“…what matters here is that, regardless of what side you’re on right now, we absolutely, positively cannot afford to sit back without digging deeper to make sure we know the real answer here. Is this stuff good or bad?” — from “GMO Facts: Why we need to dig deeper.”
Do you remember where you were in 1996 when food containing genetically modified organisms first entered the United States food supply? Don’t feel bad, none of us do – because we were never told by our federal watchdogs, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), that GMOs were headed for our plates. Three years earlier they set up their approval structure for GMO crops, and declared them generally safe for human consumption. Since then, the planting of GMO seeds has grown steadily, with the “promise of a brighter tomorrow”.
If this isn’t news to you, then I’ll bet you’ve also started hearing the whispers… the quiet talk about all the potential problems, side effects, and even long term consequences of launching these genetically modified crops into our agriculture (and of course then onto our dinner tables and into our bodies). I’ve heard warnings on everything from allergies to severe intestinal disorders to cancers… I’ve heard of farmers losing their farms thanks to Monsanto lawsuits… farmer suicides… deep governmental and United Nations corruption… the list of “whispers” goes on and on.
But what’s the truth? The biotech industry swears that the “science” has their back on this, that a scientific consensus on GMOs now exists, and all those whispers are nothing but blasphemous rumors. Try to accurately research GMOs, however, and what you’ll find is a whirlwind of confusion. Enter The Walk a Mile Project, where we perform the crucial task of discovering the truth, piece-by-piece, and most importantly documenting the truth properly for all to see – and for all to believe.
It’s time to uncover the truth about the GMOs in our food supply, to see if one side is right, or if the truth perhaps sits somewhere in the middle. Most importantly, it’s time to show everyone how we fix the issue. In other words, it’s time to discover the truth and change the world — together.

The Cutting Board will be open during special hours for this important presentation. We will be hosting it on the patio with organic popcorn and refreshments only, no food service. We won’t require preregistration, but please give us a call to RSVP for the event so we can have an estimate of attendees (480-654-8081).
The Walk a Mile Project is a long-term, multi-phase documentary film and multimedia project designed to help solve one crucial, worldwide problem at a time. We tackle problems and controversies where a search for the truth can bring the issue to its tipping point… where asking the right questions, deep research and investigative, truth-focused film-making, combined with critical thinking and the voice of reason, can step in and take the problem at hand well on its way to resolution.
