foods we create that are genetically altered... SO WHAT?!?
it is so we have food that we do that. if there weren't, there would be plenty of crop failures every year, and not much food to go around.
What are you talking about, "America" pays (and has for years) farmers to dispose of any surplus of crop. This to control market prices. They
could give two poops about starving individuals. Look at anywhere from major cities to "backwoods". If they really wanted to make sure everyone
could eat, there would be fruit and nut trees and bushes growing on every street corner, they would let you know that dandelions (weeds?) have the
highest beta-carotene count of any "vegetable" on the market, just to name a few.
And they don't just Genetically modify a plant to make the crop "better & stronger", they (companies like Monsanto) genetically modify it so it
can't reproduce naturally, meaning you have to re-buy seeds from them in order to grow crops.
Do you even know that they have to use VIRUS genes in order to get the plant DNA to manipulate... They ravage the original plant cell with a
"microscopic shot gun", and fill in all the gaps with a cocktail of virus and animal or insect genes.
Dude... you really need to get your head out of the corporate media's bungholio, and see reality for what it is..... CAPITALISM
