Just as I suspected there really are not two sides to this debate. Though we could add a few more against Monsanto and the other corporations that make our food unhealthy. Monsanto wants to feed the world because they see dollar signs. To feed the world we need to have people with technological knowledge to help them acclimate to the changing climate and make adaptations. Not steal their land and grow palm oil plants and corn.The reason Willie Nelson and others began Farm Aid was because with the banks helping, Monsanto and other Ag Food companies were stealing land from the American farmer. That of course, has left us with these Big Ag companies owning nearly all of the arable farm land. Meanwhile, the arable land grows ever less because of the use of genetic pesticides and chemical fertilizer that washes into the rivers and makes the soils grow less fertile. Farmers care for the land, corporations use the land, there is a difference.

We have the right to non tainted food. There is no argument good enough for them destroying the food, water, Earth, pollinators and causing harm and death and destruction...period. NO GMO's!!!!
