Because "farmers" (often one man, lots of industrial machines, a huge piece of land, insurmountable debts and a family to feed, in the US at least)
have been conned. You did notice the article that went by on here recently about the uproar abroad in...Pakistan I believe when the crop failed?
It also has infected at least 70% (from memory) of native Mexican corn due to it's ability to spread via pollination. Some of that corn was
genetically pure and unique for several thousand years at least but now, the native corn is "infected" with Monsanto genes. There seems to be little
getting away from the invasion and as some of those genes are patented...well, it doesn't bear thinking about what Monsanto has with regard to legal
power. Legal is not the same as lawful but in practice it is.
The arrogance of man on a global scale may, I repeat may, cause more harm than good. All the lies about better production yields are just that, lies.
Money makers and power shakers. Sure they are a business trying to make money, but does that really make it right, good and honest?
