Monsanto: Profits Above Human Health (tags)

Monsanto

USDA; Try "Coexistence" w/ Monsanto; HELL NO! (tags)

Scientific studies show increasing links between consumption of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and severe health risks, yet under Obama's USDA censorship remains business as usual. Lack of truth in labeling of GMO products deprive consumers of freedom of choice and the right to know what is in the food we are eating. Instead of protecting consumers, the USDA becomes the "long arm of Monsanto" by protecting their unregulated experiments on consumers in North America and elsewhere by exposing people to GMO products against their knowledge and consent.

Obama Supports Food Inc.'s World Domination and All We Get Is the White House Garden? (tags)

While Michele Obama took the needed steps in tearing out the White House lawn and planting an organic garden, her husband isn't so quick to drop the old pandering to biotechnology habits of big agribusiness corporations. With Obama's chosen staff of Tom Vilsack, Rajiv Shah, and Islam Siddiqui we have a continuation of the revolving door between corporate agribusiness, biotechnology and government regulators.

In-situ crop diversity, wild relatives & GE pollen contamination (tags)

In-situ (on site) conservation of crop biodiversity is another answer to the fallacy of genetic engineering (GMO/GE) monoculture crops promoted by biotech corporations. Wild relatives of crops like rice and maize can be intercrossed/introgressed to increase resistance to insect pests and "weed" competition. We only need to protect the wild relatives of crops like rice, potatoes and maize..

GM Crops Failing In The Fields And Harming Farmers And The Environment (tags)

A new study published today by Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace demonstrates that the growing of GM crops in Spain is causing contamination of organic crops, producing low yields and its benefits are grossly overstated. The report is also highly critical of the Spanish Government for failing to properly control or monitor the situation. [1]

Universities and Countries Begging Companies (tags)

Science was noticeably absent at BIO2001: Most of the booths were of Western cities, states, countries et al. and universities competing with each other to give biotech corporations the sweetest offer in the form of tax breaks and office parks etc. Here we see one of Germany’s booths: It compares the contributions of Martin Luther and Back to those of biotech companies. Come on! The actual biotech company booths appeared to be not staffed by scientists seriously discussing the pros and cons of their work, but by capitalists out to make as much money as possible.
