GM soya has decreased yields by up to 20 percent compared with non-GM soya. And up to 100 percent failures of Bt cotton have been recorded in India. This in turn has spurred a staggering number of suicides among India’s farmers. According to the National Crime Records Bureau of India, more than 182,900 Indian farmers took their own lives between 1997 and 2007, potentially due to GM crop failures. An estimated 46 Indian farmers commit suicide every day.

And the scary part is they claim they want to help poor undernourished people in "third world" countires!
This is always what they claim but these people are either used as test subjects or they take their natural resources.
Whenever Monsantos gets involved it's never to help people. It's always to reduce or take away something...edit on 21-6-2011 by blackrain17 because: (no reason given)

Afghanistan suffered a catastrophic seed bank loss in 2002.
War on Terra indeed.
Ironically, the stores were not plundered for those plant materials; the seeds were dumped in disarray onto the floor of ransacked buildings in two cities. The looters merely ran off with the airtight plastic and glass jars in which the seeds had been kept. www.sciencenews.org...
