Monsanto, in its previous business incarnation was the company who brought you agent orange and 24D and bovine hormones.
Please take the time to buy some literature and inform yourself on the dangers of GMO's. You need to know this subject inside and out. Here in OZ we
have had a moritorium stopping introduction of GMO's in agriculture for some time but this has been successfully challenged & GMOs introduced.
As far as the food chain goes, you need to avoid anything containing canola (rape seed). Virtually all of this is GMO. Also, corn and corn syrup.
This presents a problem for the US as virtually all their processed food containing sweeteners uses corn syrup. And soft drinks. Cotton seed oil is
a problem - do not use this on your skin. Your milk supply is a problem due to hormone stimulants in the cattle.
So avoid what you can identify and if you can't afford anything else, try for organic dairy products and meats if possible. This is going to help.
Oh and PS - microwaves will kill you faster than GMOs
The pollen is an issue because the GMOs are modified at the genetic level. Therefore, if there is an exchange of pollen with other plants of the same
or even different species, it alters the genetic structure of the offspring plants. It is creating superweeds which cannot be stopped due to
contamination with roundup ready genetics. The pollen has been highlighted as an issue for colony collapse for bees. No one seems to know.
This conspiracy for control of world food supplies goes deeper and wider than I would be prepared to post but go buy the books people and check it out
