ABOUT THE BOUGHT FILM:
You're about to see how Wall Street has literally "BOUGHT" your and your family's health.
The food, vaccine, drug, insurance and health industry are a multi-BILLION dollar enterprise... focused more on profits than human lives. The BOUGHT documentary takes viewers deep "inside the guts" of this despicable conspiracy...Featuring exclusive interviews with the world's most acclaimed experts in research, medicine, holistic care and natural health... Bought exposes the hidden (and deadly) story behind it all.
In 2012 Prop 37 in California was a shoe-in to win.
Surveys showed as much as 85% of the public wants GMOs labeled on our foods. $9 million was raised and the proposition was headed for passage. Then Monsanto, Dow and food manufacturing giants sprinted to the finish with over $45 million and defeated the proposition by 2.8 points. Then in March of 2013, the “Monsanto Protection Act” was tacked on to HR933 and signed into law. Monsanto Protection Act was not renewed and died later that year. Are GMOs safe? It doesn’t matter; you won’t be suing their creators. Our food safety has been sold out from under us. It’s been “Bought”.

“Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. It puts the aspirations and needs of those who produce, distribute and consume food at the heart of food systems and policies rather than the demands of markets and corporations.”
– Declaration of Nyéléni, the first global forum on food sovereignty, Mali, 2007
