Food Evolution

by Joni Kamiya, Hawaii Farmer’s Daughter, June 27, 2017

A few days ago, I was able to watch the Food Evolution movie.  I’ve read so many reviews about it and was really excited to see it.  I’m cheering that there is finally a pro-science movie being played!

I have to admit that it really brought out a range of emotions in me.  The first 15 minutes left me feeling infuriated beyond belief because the Hawaii anti-GMO movement was replayed.  The same emotions I felt as that unfolded became fresh again.  I felt sick, angry, and sad.

It still upsets me to this day that my home, Hawaii, was used to affect the world’s ability to access the very technology that save our family farm.  That same technology is helping farmers in Bangladesh, India, South Africa, Brazil, and so many other places.  However, wealthy elites like Andrew Kimbrell of the Center for Food Safety and pseudoscience pushers like Jeffrey Smith are using fear and intentional misinformation to keep improved plants from the global farmer.  The foodie culture that touts non-GMO and organic food as better does the same to the small subsistence farmer in need of tools.  They say no to technology but offer nothing in return.

Food Evolution isn’t just a movie or “propaganda” as the anti-GMO activists claim.  It’s communication of the true story of biotechnology globally. It tells the story of the papaya in Hawaii and other innovations in the world.  When people like Vani Hari, Zen Honeycutt, Charles Benbrook, and others use primitive psychological tactics like fear to move their followers to stop the story from being heard, our fellow global citizens are being denied a basic quality of life.  Zen even goes as far to say she trusts only the social media and needs no scientist to tell her what to believe.

There is something afoul in society when dishonesty and blockading of technology starts to harm the most vulnerable.  As I’ve observed for years of the discriminatory nature of the anti-GMO activists, it’s the well nourished and well fed that parade as Earth saviors that are against the well being of humanity.  To proudly dress up as bees or bananas then proclaim you’re doing mankind a favor is exactly what your costume represents, something transient and fake.  Even putting on hazmat suits and destroying plants promotes suffering.  Once the facade is gone, we are all humans and are you doing the right thing for our fellow human?

In one clip of the movie, the organic banana farmer realizes that with no food means famine and poverty.  If we truly want to save our planet, we have to have consideration for humanity.  Providing a basic quality of life for our fellow human being is the pono thing to do.  Listening to imported fear that takes advantage of ignorance is the most toxic poison in the world because it denies technology and innovation to those who could benefit the most.  This is what breaks my heart knowing what the future will hold for those worlds away from us.

July 12th at Kahala Mall Consolidated Theaters will play Food Evolution.  I hope it touches you as much as it inspired me to continue the fight for truth.  It’s a movie of hope for the future and a challenge for many to face the reality of what they may believe.
