Best World War 2 Documentaries Thanks to the valiant efforts of television producers the world over (and a few dubious cable channels), you don't have to learn about the past through books. Instead, you can sit back, relax and have your history accompanied by genuine footage from the time. This is my list of the best World War 2 documentaries you can buy: some great series haven’t been released. 1. World at War: The Complete Set The World at War is quite simply the best documentary ever made. 2. I've not been able to see many of these documentaries so far, but they come highly recommended by a reader (which is how I first learnt of them) who says they are excellent. 3. The attraction of this DVD is simple: it's WWII in colour. 4. The single greatest propaganda film ever made, Leni Riefenstahl's account of the 1934 Nuremberg Rally is a masterpiece which partly forged the seductive and powerful image of Nazism. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Study Confirms Genetically Modified Crops Threaten Human Fertility and Health Safety Austrian Government Study Confirms Genetically Modified (GM) CropsThreaten Human Fertility and Health Safety Advocates Call for Immediate Ban of All GM Foods and GM Crops IMMEDIATE RELEASE (November 13, 2008) (Los Angeles, CA.) - A long-term feeding study commissioned by the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety, managed by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Health, Family and Youth, and carried out by Veterinary University Vienna, confirms genetically modified (GM) corn seriously affects reproductive health in mice. Non-GMO advocates, who have warned about this infertility link along with other health risks, now seek an immediate ban of all GM foods and GM crops to protect the health of humankind and the fertility of women around the world. Feeding mice with genetically modified corn developed by the US-based Monsanto Corporation led to lower fertility and body weight, according to the study conducted by the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna. A book by author Jeffrey M. Mr.

The Cost of a Coke Coca Cola, we've found out, has actually been cooperating with paramilitaries in Colombia to execute workers in their own bottling plants that are trying to form unions and trying to demand better working conditions. So we've been able to bring this to the attention of Universities and say 'if Coca Cola doesn't stop doing this and if Coca Cola doesn't adopt different practices, then our University is no longer willing to have anything to do with Coca Cola. In the world of the Coca-Cola Company, whenever there's a union there's always a bust, whenever there's corruption there's always the real thing, yeah!! Justice Productions second release, The Cost of a Coke: 2nd Edition is the updated version to Matt Beard's first documentary, The Cost of a Coke. The Cost of a Coke: 2nd Edition explores the corruption and moral bankruptcy of the world's most popular soda, and what you can do to help end a gruesome cycle of murders and environmental degradation.

Significant Health Hazards of Genetically Engineered Foods By Dr. Mercola Scientists in Norway have released results from experimental feeding studies carried out over a 10-year period, and the verdict is in: If you want to avoid obesity, then avoid eating genetically engineered (GE) corn, corn-based products, and animals that are fed a diet of GE grain. As reported by Cornucopia.org1, the project also looked at the effects on organ changes, and researchers found significant changes that affected weight gain, eating behaviors, and immune function. How Genetically Engineered Corn and Soy Can Wreak Havoc on Your Health According to the featured article2: “The results show a positive link between GE corn and obesity. Their findings (which were published July 11, 2012 in Norway by Forskning.no, an online news source devoted to Norwegian and international research3) showed that animals fed genetically engineered Bt corn ate more, got fatter, and were less able to digest proteins due to alterations in the micro-structure of their intestines. “...

Watch Confessions of an Undercover Cop Documentary Online Free The inside story of Mark Kennedy, the police officer who spent eight years undercover as a dedicated activist, having infiltrated the environmental movement and Europe’s left-wing extremist political groups. Now, with his cover blown, Kennedy has lost his wife and children, and the friends he made during his time with the protesters have labelled him a traitor. In this Cutting Edge film, he discusses the consequences of his actions, as police bosses claim he has forgotten who he really is.

Directed by Bafta Award-winner Brian Hill and narrated by Kennedy, the Cutting Edge film also features interviews with the police to reconstruct the story of how Mark Kennedy went from being a regular south London police officer, with a wife and two children, to becoming Mark Stone.

Genetically Modified Soy Linked to Sterility, Infant Mortality "This study was just routine," said Russian biologist Alexey V. Surov, in what could end up as the understatement of this century. Surov and his colleagues set out to discover if Monsanto's genetically modified (GM) soy, grown on 91% of US soybean fields, leads to problems in growth or reproduction. What he discovered may uproot a multi-billion dollar industry. After feeding hamsters for two years over three generations, those on the GM diet, and especially the group on the maximum GM soy diet, showed devastating results. And if this isn't shocking enough, some in the third generation even had hair growing inside their mouths—a phenomenon rarely seen, but apparently more prevalent among hamsters eating GM soy. The study, jointly conducted by Surov's Institute of Ecology and Evolution of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the National Association for Gene Security, is expected to be published in three months (July 2010)—so the technical details will have to wait.

End of Liberty End of Liberty exposes from a real life perspective how the U.S. is headed for a complete societal collapse. All Americans are now experiencing countless warning signs on a daily basis that a societal collapse is near. Unfortunately, most Americans don't understand the significance of these warning signs. Each warning sign by itself doesn't appear to have a lot of meaning, but together these warning signs present a very detailed picture of the current state of the U.S. economy and where this country is soon headed. The documentary is over an hour long and features Gerald Celente, the most accurate trends forecaster in U.S. history. End of Liberty also features the National Inflation Association's president Gerard Adams, who on February 5th purchased call options in the silver ETF at $0.89 (NIA publicly announced his purchase to NIA members on February 8th) that he sold last week at $4.25 for a gain of 378% in a little over eight months.

Genetically Modified Corn — Safe or Toxic? Pick up a box of cereal or other packaged food at the grocery store, and chances are you’re looking at a genetically modified product. The Center for Food Safety, a nonprofit organization that seeks sustainable alternatives to harmful methods of food production technologies, estimates that more than 70 percent of the processed foods in U.S. grocery stores contain some genetically modified ingredients — mostly corn or soy. But, in most cases, these modified foods have received only limited testing. For example, take the three genetically modified corn varieties already being sold by Monsanto that are the subject of new analysis by French scientists. Under current U.S. law, corporations are not required to make industry-conducted studies public. An Apple Is an Apple Is a Genetically Modified Apple? The new report also concludes that the Monsanto rat-feeding studies were so small and so brief that they clearly lack sufficient statistical power to prove the corn varieties are safe.

Documentary List - The best documentaries to watch online The Viking Warriors The Vikings (from Old Norse víkingr) were seafaring north Germanic people who raided, traded, explored, and settled in wide areas of Europe, Asia, and the North Atlantic islands from the late 8th to the mid-11th centuries. The Vikings employed wooden longships with wide, shallow-draft hulls, allowing navigation in rough seas or in shallow river waters. The ships could be landed on beaches, and their light weight enabled them to be hauled over portages. These versatile ships allowed the Vikings to travel as far east as Constantinople and the Volga River in Russia, as far west as Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland, and as far south as Nekor. This period of Viking expansion, known as the Viking Age, constitutes an important element of the medieval history of Scandinavia, Great Britain, Ireland, Russia, and the rest of Europe.
