Scientists under Attack

DVD2010 60 Minutes

The danger and immorality of scientific research being funded by big business.

Genetic engineering in the magnetic field of money: In the early 90s the agro-chemicals-multi Monsanto introduced genetically modified plants on to the market, which for some people was an agricultural revolution that would solve all the world’s food problems. But other people view this as irrevocable destruction of bio-diversity on this planet, which should be fiercely combated.

Two distinguished scientists, Arpad Pusztai and Ingnacio Chapela, studied genetic engineering, and made important discoveries. Their careers are in ruins because they criticised the powerful vested interests that now dominate big business and scientific research.

Statements made by scientists themselves prove that 95% of the research in the area of genetic engineering is paid for by the industry, only 5% being independent. This is obviously a great danger for the freedom of science and to democracy. How much can we trust scientists?
