I know this really great Lady, her name is Robbyn of The Back Forty, she has a blog that has so opened my eyes. A few months ago I first hear about a company called Monsanto, the most recognizable product they put out is a herbicide called RoundUp. How many of us have grabbed a bottle of that to kill a weed or two around the house? Guilty. I was not always so enlightened. But if that was all this multi national corporation had done to the peoples of this world, it would still be bad.
Unfortunately, these are really, really, really BAD people.
They take our food seed and chop up the dna and rearrange it. Tell us we can only use certain things to produce it with. Sue us, when we are not using their GMO seed, if we accidentally get a seed from one their strains in our fields. Contaminate crops world wide so that native species can no longer be grown while the inhabitants of that area starve. And it goes on......
Anyway here is the link to Robbyn's article ~ it is a must read for anyone interested in having a say in our future food production. Yes~this can does affect us NOW in our lives. Food costs and availability are directly related to Monsanto's immoral and unethical and criminal behavior!
I get really mad and upset when I think of the travesties that are allowed to happen.
Thank you Robbyn!
