Giant biotech companies are privatising the world's protection against climate change by filing hundreds of monopoly patents on genes that help crops resist it, a new investigation has concluded.

Monsanto Owns Your Food Patents - Over 11,000 Patents, on Seeds, Animals,Human Genetics,

And there aren't any nutrients in those 11,00 GMO'd Seeds either.

..gentically modify, all our food, so that it looks great,
after, being shipped from the other side of the world, and gets to your table, (unripe, still), about 4 weeks later,(still fresh ?),
.. with no nutrients at all(practically),
- fact, you need to eat 15 servings, of fresh, raw, green beans, every
day, to get close to enough, just of those nutrients.
... that's besides the fact, that the genetically modified organism's,
that all our food now actually is..... is made to mess us up....

.. hopefully, hahahaha, they will do a better job, than this...

The American people would love to go organic,... the only thing stopping them,

is being able to get the stuff(organic fertilizer).
The only thing stopping them from getting organic fertilizer, is the
Patricia Woertz(ADM), owned E.P.A.,
and the Patricia Woertz(ADM), owned AAPFCO (Association of American Plant Food Control Officials).

No legal jurasdiction what.so.ever, but still able to control, and delay everything,(as in the USA gov)

We were here...AAPFCO.presentation...after about a 2 year wait..

February, 2008 Itís with our heartfelt thanks, for the priceless help she has given us, to prepare for the AAPFCO (Association of American Plant Food Control Officials) presentation. Dr. Elaine Ingham has dedicated her life, to you, and future generations of the Earth. The founder of the world renowned, Soil Food Web Laboratories, www.soilfoodweb.com, both President and Director of Research at Sustainable Studies Inc. Dr. Ingham is recognized, as one of the leading soil scientists of our time. She has pioneered research, into the understanding of soil organisms, and the role that healthy soil management plays in the ultimate success, of all present, and future crops, needed for our survival. Dr. Ingham is the primary author of the Soil Biology Primer. Dr Ingham has several laboratories around the world where growers can send samples for independent assessment.

Dr. Elaine Ingham, founder of the world renowned, Soil Food Web Laboratories, www.soilfoodweb.com, says there is (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium: N-P-K), in our stuff, of course, all organic things, have NPK.

... we have to wait another 6 months, till August for the next AAPFCO (Association of American Plant Food Control Officials) presentation,

- and then they will tell us, ... after ADM(synthetic-corn(poison),amino acids), gets immediate approval,and delays our presentation, so there's not enough time left,.. can you come back, in like about six months, and actually prove, that there are NPK's in Agrogreen.
...
- USA, could have been completely Organic, and Toxic Chemical Free,
..2 years ago, just from our stuff, let alone, everyone else this happens to.

... oh yes... everyone else can use it but American's

NOTED!
Another thing stopping people from shopping/buying organic is PRICE. A substantial growing number of people cannot justify the higher prices of eating healthier foods. Then there's those who simply do not want to acknowledge that there is any difference what so ever.

LL A. I agree with you. Is this the price we pay to live sustainably and cough up our earnings to these Bio Tech Giants noting also that governments don't offer real rebates to concide with the consumer price index (CPI)to ease tensions.

One obvious solution is to build our own hydroponic gardens for example. And if there's land space or environment issues, build large basement style gardens and deflect the sun's ultraviolet light into these confines while utilising solar power to pump the water irrigation system.

Native Americans live from the land taking only what they need to survive with many living on native reserves growing their own crops and using natural resources in a sustainable manner.

What concerns me most about the patents is not that the new genes are all that valuable, but than if they cross with a neighboring farmer who did not intend to grow them, that farmer becomes liable using the gene without paying the Biotech. IMO, farmers growing GMO should be responsible for keeping their wind-blown seeds to themselves.

Think globally, eat organic locally! Call Monsanto (314-694-1000)and tell them to keep their toxins to themselves. I called them today and they said what i think "if everyone would become personally responsible and informed and not buy it we wouldn't sell it". Good idea! Thx Cal!

Monsanto is totally evil and intent on destroying people with their chemicals in food. I plan on calling them and I WOULD NEVER TOUCH THEIR FOOD NO MATTER WHAT PRICE I PAY FOR ORGANIC. Grow your own garden food and enjoy. I think alot of people don't understand what they are ingesting and the media ought to start broadcasting it on 60 minutes,etc.
