A few excerpts:

"Interestingly, the scientists who sprayed the test field wore full body suits to protect them from this "harmless" poison. One must wonder at just how safe it could be when the developers themselves don't trust it more than that! Of course, the head of the trial, Professor David Bishop, insisted that the trial was safe—though he himself opted to take a vacation, rather than be there for it."

"With the FDA's history of rubberstamp approvals for genetically modified crops, it seems unlikely that anything will interfere with their production and entry into a supermarket near you."

"Keep in mind, also, that the use of genetically modified seeds tends to come with codicils that lock the buyer, and even subsequent users of the land, into buying nothing else."

"Perhaps, ultimately, it will be the Frankenseeds themselves that destroy Agribusiness! They're locked into a system that is proving not to work. The real question, then, is whether they'll destroy the earth—and us—before they've destroyed themselves."

Once again, Monsanto have shown their true colors: They are insane.

We need to get the Monsanto shills out of the FDA organization, out of USDA too.

We cannot allow Monsanto to continue to poison people with their poisonous products.

We need to get labeling laws passed.

Farmers must be allowed to sue Monsanto for contaminating their fields with unwanted GMO seeds and plants.

Ty, Deb.

They must stay up late at night thinking of new ways to poison us.

It's almost getting to the point of just wanting the pesticides rather than this. We need labeling, is there nothing one can eat anymore?

Remember...produce labels that start with 9 are organic, 5 are GMO and 4 are conventional.

Jim got it right - Monsanto has to be insane. Every last one of the people who work there - have they never heard of the Butterfly Effect? Do they really think they are going to escape the poisons they are spreading? Yes, they should all be in prison - for attempted murder and actual murder.

And there are others who are doing this, as well. In fact, I'm not sure that the article said it was Monsanto this time, but in any case, this GMO crap has to be stopped. They are making NEW living organisms from bacterias and viruses and then thinking that our bodies will be able to digest the proteins from them. That is insane, like Jim said. We have certain enzymes to digest proteins and we certainly don't have any that will digest scorpion poison DNA! The best way to make this stop is to refuse to buy it. Look for non GMO certified labeled foods and don't buy anything but. It is a given that our government for the corporations isn't going to protect us from this.
