Scientists under Attack - Genetic Engineering in the Magnetic Field of Money

Vědci pod palbou – Věda v magnetickém poli peněz

In the early 90s the agro-chemicals conglomerate Monsanto introduces genetically modified plants onto the market, which is the equivalent of an agricultural revolution for some that will solve all the world’s food problems. Others view these plants as an irrevocable destruction of bio-diversity on this planet that needs to be fiercely combated. Arpad Pusztai and Ignacio Chapela have two things in common. They are distinguished scientists and their careers are in ruins. Both scientists choose to look at the phenomenon of genetic engineering.
