The Idiot Cycle is a film about cancer and how chemical companies not only profit from making the chemicals that cause cancer, but also profit from selling the drugs that treat cancer.

Here are excerpts from a review by Tim King at Salem-News.com:
“Idiot Cycle delivers the goods on the world’s top cancer causing culprits, and could easily have been titled ‘The Business of Cancer’ — as it so fully divulges the dark and dirty side of companies like Bayer, BASF, Dow, Dupont, Monsanto, Syngetna, Novartis, Pfizer, and others. Monsanto is a large focus of this movie, and it should be.
“These same companies are now developing genetically modified crops, which have never been tested for long term health impacts like cancer. Along with the development of these non-natural food products, has been the creation of an infrastructure to support and supplement their efforts to literally modify the patterns of nature.
“The Idiot Cycle exposes the minimal amount of testing that has taken place and reveals how even in the long run, the most extended periods available to gauge are only four years. The onset of cancer is frequently fifteen to twenty years down the road for victims.
“The revelations are shocking: a former Monsanto attorney who, as a judge, consistently hears cases involving Monsanto, exclusively ruling in their favor in spite of what could only be called highly corroborated scientific evidence, to the contrary.” [Guess they didn’t include Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan and Clarence Thomas?]
