8 Ways Monsanto is Destroying Our Health

Standard American Diet: According to the Organic Consumers Association, “There is a direct correlation between our genetically engineered food supply and the $2 trillion the US spends annually on medical care, namely an epidemic of diet-related chronic diseases. Instead of healthy fruits, vegetables, grains, and grass-fed animal products, US factory farms and food processors produce a glut of genetically engineered junk foods that generate heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer. Low fruit and vegetable consumption is directly costing the United States $56 billion a year in diet-related chronic diseases.”

these are but a few reasons, why i hope, sincerely, there is a "seed bank" . that our natural foods from days gone by are being kept from extinction. it doesn't make much sense, that these companies are destroying our food, and us, while claiming they are trying to save our food and keep the supply up for demand with less loss. unless of course, and i hate to say this, they are jpartnered with the companies that provide the medicines to bandaid the illnesses from eating these foods. food should sustain you, help you live, rather than make you sick.
