look on the latest trick the monsanto did to poisoned us and for which we pay again.

from the content:
"Monsanto and its cohorts in crime promised us that they would not be using Terminator technology called GURT, or genetic use restricted technology.
In fact, the United Nations actually issued a moratorium on the project. So we’re safe, right? Wrong.
As usual, the boys in the little white lab coats have not been idle. In spite of the moratorium, not only are they working heatedly on Terminator
technology, but are getting ready to introduce Zombie technology. Terminator, and Traitor or Zombie technologies are just variations of GURT. Whereas
Terminator technology produces plants with sterile seeds, Zombie technology carries this a step further by creating plants that could require a
chemical application to trigger seed fertility every year. Pay for the chemical or get sterile seed. This is called reversible transgenic sterility.
They have been working steadily on perfecting this technology, and are now poised to introduce it to the world as a solution to the current GMO
contamination problem. Move over Terminator, here comes the Zombie.
If a field gets contaminated with seeds containing the Terminator gene, the resulting plants will have sterile seeds, so the reproductive cycle ends.
If the contamination is from the Zombie gene, the resulting plants will most likely require a certain pesticide or will be sterile.
Plants are engineered with sterility as the default condition, but sterility can be reversed with the application of an external stimulus that
restores the plant’s viability. In order to bring the “zombie” seed back from the dead, the farmer or breeder must use an external stimulus
(such as a proprietary chemical) to restore the seed’s fertility. (Terminator the Sequel, 2007 PDF doc)
Either way, if you are a small farmer with a contaminated field, your seed-saving venture for the following year will be less than successful.
Planting sterile seeds takes the same amount of work as well as monetary outlay that planting good seeds does, but without the return on investment.
And, you cannot tell the difference between the good, the bad, and the ugly seeds until it’s too late. That is, if the patent enforcement brigade
doesn’t raid your property first and force you to destroy your crops and all of your seeds due to patent infringement. Then you get nothing, and
have to pay for the privilege. "
"Impact: Whether intended or not, new research on molecular containment of transgenes will ultimately allow the multinational seed industry to
tighten its grasp on proprietary germplasm and restrict the rights of farmers. Industry and governments are already working to overturn the existing
moratorium on Terminator technology at the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). In the months leading up to the CBD’s 9th Conference of the
Parties (Bonn, Germany 19-30 May 2008), industry will argue that global warming requires urgent introduction of transgenic crops and trees for
biofuels - and that Terminator-type technologies offer a precautionary, environmental necessity to prevent transgene flow. Ironically, society is
being asked to foot the bill for a new techno-fix to mitigate the genetic contamination caused by the biotech industry’s defective GM seeds.
Players: Taxpayer-financed research on biological containment of GM crops subsidizes the corporate agenda. A handful of multinational seed
corporations control biotech seeds and the proprietary seed market as a whole has seen unprecedented corporate concentration. In 2006, the world’s
top 4 seed companies - Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta and Groupe Limagrain - accounted for half (49%) of the proprietary seed market."
