What about other organisations making GMO crops??
monsanto makes 12 GMO crops curently available in the USA - according to this page ther aer a total of 50 such products, so Monsanto make 1/4 of them - and even some of those are in conjunction with other organisations.
Monsanto gets demonised........but it is nowhere near monopolising GMO worldwide.edit on 23-9-2012 by Aloysius the Gaul because: (no reason given)
Court again declares South Dakota?s anti-corporate farming law illegal In a landmark, and troubling, opinion, the Eighth Circuit US Court of Appeals in St. Paul Tuesday upheld a previous circuit court decision that declared South Dakota's 1998 anti-corporate farming law, known as Amendment E, unconstitutional. Writing for the court, Eighth Circuit Appellate Judge Pasco Bowman said Amendment E violated the dormant Commerce Clause of the US Constitution because it "was motivated by a discriminatory purpose."
The court found two statements troublesome. The first was the statement that “without the passage of Amendment E, ‘[d]esperately needed profits will be skimmed out of local economies and into the pockets of distant corporations.’’”24 The second was a statement that “‘Amendment E gives South Dakota the opportunity to decide whether control of our state’s agriculture should remain in the hands of family farmers and ranchers or fall into the grasp of a few, large corporations.’”25 The court concluded that the “pro” statement (it did not specifically identify which statement) was “‘brimming with protectionist rhetoric.’”26

Monsanto needs to be destroyed.
They have violated human rights. Arrest the owners, divest the company of its assets and shut down its research.
Kill it all with fire until there is adequate science to back up GMO safety for human consumption and environmental neutrality.

It doesn't matter that you don't consume a lot of food. What matters is the food you do consume.
Just because you don't eat soybeans means nothing. The problem is the animals we eat are fed GMO feed, many of the other products we use are made containing GMO products. Then the vegetables we eat, are also becoming mostly GMO.
You see where this is going?

(NaturalNews) The GMO debate is over. There is no longer any legitimate, scientific defense of growing GM crops for human consumption. The only people still clinging to the outmoded myth that "GMOs are safe" are scientific mercenaries with financial ties to Monsanto and the biotech industry.
GMOs are an anti-human technology. They threaten the continuation of life on our planet. They are a far worse threat than terrorism, or even the threat of nuclear war.
