Monsanto wants to monopolize the seeds market. They are researching hybrid vegetables that do not reproduce. That way, EVERYONE must buy seeds each season.
But, that should not be our focus. Rather, the scientific community abroad, is reporting cancers and other conditions affecting everyone’s health, since Monsanto controls 90% of the GMO seeds. Alarming that they claim 2 million deaths as a result of these seeds. I am not sure of that stat, but if true, 70% of corn, grain and soybeans in America, are grown from Genetically Modified Seeds. Genetically Modified crops have been said to slow growth in the second generation, and stop reproduction in the third, of the lab animals studied. If this happens in humans, civilization could be threatened.
Also, the decline in bee populations are causing grief throughout the farming community. Studies are being conducted, and have shown that the decline may be due to GMO. Makes sense that if a seed will only produce inert seeds, then the pollen the bees are getting from GMO crops, is tainted.
France and Russia have already outlawed the seeds, England is starting to outlaw them and Australia is testing whether they will follow suit. Japan, New Zealand, Germany, Ireland, Austria, Hungary, Greece, Bulgaria, Luxembourg, Madeira, and Switzerland also banned or restricted GMO crops and/or seeds.
If you don’t grow your own produce, you may wish to rethink.
