USDA Recommends "Coexistence" with Monsanto: We Say Hell No!

Commented Dec 31, 2010 at 02:52:15 in Home

“The farmer who mentions the starving people in Africa, forgets it's all about money in Monsanto's pocket. There is enough food produced, distribution is one problem, people in Africa and other poor countries can't afford food on a regular basis, force feeding them GMO's benefits Monsanto and their ilk, mean while the people fed GMO's are the lab rats. Teaching the poor to grow their own food has already begun and needs to be addressed from that point, they need to be empowered with their own seeds and organic techniques so they can become more self sufficient, but this is what Monsanto and Co. don't want unless it's their GMO franken seeds that they would have to buy from Monsanto every year along with their pesticides and herbicides, it's all a scam to fatten Monsanto's bank account, the GMO's can feed the world is a big myth, GMO's have been around for about 14 years now and there are still starving people which puts a big hole in that theory. The environmental contamination of organic and even conventional crops from GMO strains has to be stopped, our genetic diversity is steadily shrinking, 90% of the varieties grown in 1900 are gone, GMO's will erode that further, which is the goal of Monsanto and Co. co existence has not worked and will not work, co existence is just Monsanto's password to keep control of the majority of the seed crops. Anyone who can't see that is willfully blind.
