Since there was only 50 of you to respond, that would tell me that 1 of you voted NO.

In an effort show fairness, why?

To hell with it, read the damn article and attempt to spend a little time with before you vote. Is it that hard?

Brazilians are light-years ahead of the US.

Monsanto doesn't have its evil, corrupting, bribe-paying hooks in the Brazilian politicians anywhere like it does here in the US.

I'm surprised that isn't how school food is. Even over here, our schools don't provide food but we have canteens where we can buy it. Some food is food like salad rolls etc, but it's mostly pies, sausage rolls etc. No chips (that I know of) but you get the idea

Food security is a basic right. Monsanto wants to take that right away from you. If you farm, keep your seeds. Don't buy any seeds from Monsanto. They'll take away your right to grow your own food.

Smacks of a nanny state, but I like it. My husband and I have found that now that we prepare food together from our garden, we enjoy, not only the food, but our time together.
