2009 – This German documentary shows the dangers of the nuclear industry to mankind and the environment.  The film makers travel around the world, to France, the US, and Russia to nuclear enrichment and power facilities to investigate the levels of radioactivity surrounding the facilities.  They speak with villagers and residents who were left completely in the dark about the danger they live in from high levels of radiation in the soil and water supply that inevitably ends up in their food supply.

Nuclear energy companies and government bureaucrats offer a mixed reaction to the film makers’ concerns.  Some acknowledge the levels of danger, while others deny there’s more than a minimal cancer risk.  The last part of the film covers the hazards and challenges of storing nuclear waste.  Is it really possible to secure such toxic materials from the forces of nature – and the historical instability of humanity’s governments and civilizations – for tens or hundreds of thousands of years?

This film is presented in German with English subtitles.

FRANKENSTEER is a disturbing yet compelling documentary that reveals how the ordinary cow is being transformed into an antibiotic dependent, hormone-laced potential carrier of toxic bacteria, all in the name of cheaper food.

The beef industry, supported by North American government agencies and pharmaceutical companies, has engaged in an on-going experiment to create the perfect food machine to increase speed of production and reduce the cost of manufacture. But there is a price in producing a cheap industrial product. This benign, grazing herbivore has undergone a radical rethinking in how it’s raised, fed and slaughtered, including recent changes in inspection rules have shifted the responsibility for food safety from government inspectors to the people on the floor who do the slaughtering and packing.

FRANKENSTEER reveals some startling facts. Every year 50% of the total tonnage of antibiotics used in Canada ends up in livestock. And every year cattle raised in massive feedlots are routinely dosed with antibiotics even if they are not sick. For public health safety reasons during the current BSE (Mad Cow disease) crisis, North American health officials have labeled certain parts of the cow as bio-hazardous products and have ordered that they be handled accordingly.

And consumers, by and large, are totally unaware of the dangers lurking in their beloved steaks, ribs and, most especially, hamburgers.
