Our Daily Poison

How agribusiness is poisoning our food

A steadily increasing number of scientists sees a connection between the increasing prevalence of cancer, immune deficiencies, diabetes, and neurological diseases and the changes in our diet. The idea of producing more and more food and preserving it, has led to an increasing use of chemical additives in our food. Marie-Monique Robin’s documentary "Our Daily Poison" illuminates the conditions in which our food is produced, processed and consumed - from the field onto the plate, from pesticides to additives and synthetics food come into contact with.
