A discussion of GMOs

Just the other day my friend Jane sent me a newsletter from Whole Foods that had a questionnaire in it about how people feel about GMOs (genetically modified organisms).

Now today I see Tom Philpott from Grist has done an article on GMOs that basically says Monsanto et al., control all the information, so anyone who wants to get their seeds to do independent work, can't, or if they can they are afraid to speak out because they are afraid of losing their funding.

Right there that says everything I need to know, when there is no freedom of information or when the information is so closely gaurded then you have to wonder what the GMO makers have to hide?

Again, go see Food, Inc. it talks about Monsanto's business practices and those alone should turn any decent person off of wanting to support a corporation who has so willfully destroyed the lives of so many farmers.

Monsanto and others like them who tamper so secretly, and overwhelming control the world's food supply - soon all prices, are the ultimate evil on this planet.
Soon no organic will be available to anyone, and we will lose the right to grow our own vegetables on our own land. Sounds like science fiction, I know, but it isn't.
