The soybeans had been approved earlier this year by top importer China. Monsanto now plans to supply 15 million US soy acres to the export needs, the company said in a statement.

The genocide of life on Earth and the ravaging of the planet. Until there is the removal of the 1% of elitist evil corruption in government and other places of power, this will be our end experience. Thanks Dandelion for more ugly truth.

They are so damn dumb and greedy! Since a long time I avoid soy products because they are so questionable, but unfortunately you never can control all because they often are hidden ingrediences...

And so we destroy more acres of land, monarch butterflies because via GM they have pesticides in them already and thus put it into the food supply to provide neurotoxins to mothers to be, infants and children...

"The new GMO crops – coupled with the dicamba/glyphosate cocktail – make up what Monsanto has dubbed the 'Roundup Ready Xtend crop system,' designed to trump super weeds that have evolved along with the company’s glyphosate-based Roundup biocide."

The above is a form of insanity.

Now, Monster-o has created a new 2- chenmicl cocktail dicamba/glyphosate to replace it's one chemical cocktail because of 'evoking weeds'.......how soon until we see a new 3-chemical cocktail, than a 4-chemical cocktail.....what BS. There are natural ways to control weeds, but they are free.

Corrections: 2-chemical cocktail + 'evolving weeds'....I know you all could have figured them out for yourselves, but hey I can get an extra 20 points this way :-)

Consult the citizens - no the 1% sociopaths and psychopaths don't consult they just look at their bottom profit line.

Well, I guess the only thing left to add (I agree with the above comments), is that Pres. Obama signed the DARK Act. I was notified by White House mail system. And, the hits just keep coming......Heavy sigh!

I'm no fan of Monsanto Randy, but please, tell me how I can control weeds on 1000 acres of soybeans for free. It would certainly save me a great deal of money .

Ditto on Darren's comment. Many of our world leaders will claim they are not scientists when it comes to climate change, but when it comes to GMOs they accept the total b******* science of their corporations.

One has to be VERY skeptical of some scientists as well, IF they're being funded by Corporate Capitalism, because Corporate Capitalism doesn't give a sh$t about the environment.

I totally agree with the shock, sorrow & anger expressed by most here ...

But am I the only person to notice that the Monsanto’s Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans are approved - although on this same page there is an article linked "Read more: EU may ban Monsanto weedkiller over health concerns"??

I hope with all my heart that this is accurate ... but it seems contradictory - why would one need Monsanto’s Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans if Roundup is to be banned??????????????????????

Like so much they speak out of both sides of their mouth. Say one thing while quietly doing another. But I'd say it needs to be further looked into if you live in the EU.

Yes Walter thank the heavens we are nearly out of EU
The British have really worked hard to free themselves of the EU sadly there are still a few ignorant British who just don"t understand the world of today, The caring Brits just let them stamp their feet and make their mouths go.

Richard S.---an alternative is Stamet's mushrooms. Also, any good essential oils book has a myriad of info on making non-toxic formulas cheaply. We make our own formula for vegetables--one for fruits. Companion plant.
