I don't know how or when, but Monsterto's day is coming and I can only hope that it is very, very soon. This makes me insane thinking of the monumental amount of damage they are causing this planet and every living being on it. Thanks for Chering.

Thanks for the info. The contamination is not accidental usually. Monsanto has a plan, which involves them owning the rights to everyones food.

Wind drift has always been a problem for farmers ~ their hybrid crops contaminated by a a neighbor's inferior crop, fields contaminated by a neighbor's herbicide, crops destroyed because a neighbor didn't use a herbicide.

Regulate where GM crops can be planted, but GMOs are here and they're here to stay ~ and it isn't a plot by anyone.

I'm having nightmares about this.I have a very good imagination and I've seen this coming for a while now. At least there are other worry warts,but I swear I wish it was still the 60"s with some gutsier activists around..

Well, it all about Monsanto. I will watch my labels more closely in future and avoid US produce. Will miss some stuff from the US like cherries, walnuts, navel oranges etc. which are available in our off season (winter). I live in Australia, the southern hemisphere. Thanks to Monsanto I also avoid any US canned food.
