Films For Health: GMO-A-Go-Go, Consumed & Okja

I really enjoy watching movies in my free time, especially documentaries. I like to watch them and sometimes learn something new that I didn’t know before. Trust me when I say that there is a wide range of different documentaries regarding health, clean eating and GM foods.

But I understand that not everyone wants to sit down and watch a documentary or lecture about the dangers of genetic engineering. Perhaps someone would like to learn more about the topic, but would like to hear about it in a fun and cool way. That’s where these three picks of mine come into play!


If you’re like me and are against all things genetically modified, congratulations! Why do I say that? Because it still surprises me today that there’s still tons of people that aren’t on the Non-GMO bandwagon yet (*shaking my head*). So if you know anyone that doesn’t know about GMOs, this short film is definitely something to show them. It explains GM foods from beginning to end in only 10 minutes.


But let’s say someone wants something with a little more action or suspense. If you think there’s no such thing as an action film with a Non-GMO message, think again! I have two great ones to share with you!

This film is one of my personal favorites. It’s called Consumed and is currently available to stream on Netflix. It centers around a concerned mom whose investigations lead her into the world of GM food after her son starts having mysterious health issues.

(Consumed is not yet rated, contains profanity and dramatic elements)


Another honorable mention is this Netflix Original action film called Okja. It’s about a multi-national biotech company named Mirando (whose just like Monsanto) that creates a new breed of GM super pig and one girl from South Korea that befriends one.

(Okja is rated TV-MA, contains profanity)
