From Physicist To Activist: New Film Documents Life And Work Of Vandana Shiva by Dr. Joseph Mercola

“The Seeds of Vandana Shiva,” a new feature-length documentary on the life of eco-activist and agroecologist Vandana Shiva, traces Shiva’s journey from nuclear physicist to defender of the environment. Vandana Shiva, Ph.D., is a physicist and activist who works tirelessly to defend the environment and protect biodiversity from industrial agriculture, GMOs and patented seeds. Shiva’s involvement in the contemporary ecology movement began with the Chipko movement in 1973, in which Himalayan villagers, primarily women, fought back against loggers in the best way they could, by physically embracing the trees. Shiva went on to found the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology, which she called the Institute for “Counter Expertise” because its goal was to counter the “expertise” of the destroyers and “bring to the front the knowledge of those who were defending the Earth.” She also exposed the dark side of the Green Revolution and founded Navdanya, a nonprofit organization promoting biodiversity, organic farming and seed saving. There are now at least 127 seed banks in India, which will keep growing, along with a network of farmers and seed savers who have been trained in organic farming.
