Excellent. Thanks for posting!!

Thanks for posting!! Even though it sort of does make sense that a company which spends its "life's work" looking into the deepest and most intimate parts of plant genetics would have created another market sector that profits on ways to kill them, doesn't make it any less frightening. Actually, this is on the level of a major one-world controlled food supply monopoly. My family farms many crops. I am traveling back to Michigan in three weeks at the conclusion of this class. I will have to find out if we use GMO crops. I am very interested now... 06-05-2015 11:11am

Hail the almighty dollar at work.  Short term profit over potentially devastating long term consequences to human and global health. 06-07-2015 6:06am
