GMO seeds are costly to patent, legally can't be saved, need increased levels of toxins to control weeds and are artificially injected with foreign proteins

Yes and also lead to suicides of farmers eg 2000,000 in Pahkistan-when they find they cannot meet the costs
But if over 80 percent of grains and products in the supermarket contain them as a Kelloggs rep suggested protecting Kellogs forusing them -them -then there may be more to the story than instantly meets the eye

It has also been claimed that the seeming early success of GMO in the great leap forward of the seventies was due to the fact that that more rice was produced because China opened up more land for rice production at that time ,not because the GMO's created more food.

High tech solutions are definitely not necessarily the best solutions.

The only real claim for GMO products is that they produce $$$$$ for the controlling company. How can we pretend to improve on what nature has worked out over aeons? Of course a company can't patent and control what nature has already developed. It is up to us to reject the GMO products in favor of natural, sustainable crops.

The only way we are going to get rid of Monsanto is to boycott any food grown by them. We have to get rid of them because with all the new chemicals they using because the Round-up has become useless and has created a super weed which will probably choke out all the Monsanto seeds planted. Farmers will end up with less food because they cannot fight off the weeds anymore.

The collosal arrogance of these GMO companies is absolutely outrageous. They must be stopped. It may already be too late. The natural world can only take a certain amount of abuse before it collapses. Patenting life forms should never have been approved. One can blame our Department of Agriculture for that.

this questionaire is not necessary,i beleive that whole world has got the message by now that monsanto and the gmo operatives were not meant to produce healthy or economical food,so wake up everybody they serve the government and the new world order and that includes the world club elite which the rothschilds and rockerfellers control,so its about genecide big time look around you your land is being destroyed because the people send out agents to poisen the agriculture in other countries the poison the water deliberatly with toxic oil spills and they poison the air with chemtrails,the evidence is all around you and while all this is happening these creatures and that is all you can call them because they are clearly not human will be somewhere safe and in the best of health and they will be eating the best food,the time for talking is over, you and i mean all of you have to do something before it is too late.
