I see this as a bad thing. Now these poor people won't be able to own the food and the food's offspring because these plants are not supposed to
breed. However these plants do breed through standard pollination processes, (such as an animal taking the seed to another plant) and these plants
choke out the natural versions of the crop. There has been numerous instances where Monsanto will destroy another farmer because their land acquired a
seed from a neighboring farm and started growing a Monsanto plant without buying it first. Also, in Mexico, their corn has mutated because of these
crops coming in through humanitarian aid. An excellent documentary about the plight of GMO farmers and of third world countries harvesting GMO crops
is "The World According to Monsanto." The full version is on Google video.
I also believe this will severely affect thesepeoples health. You are what you eat, and I believe the DNA and substances found in food will affect the
person eating it's being, such as their dna.
I think eating GMO food partly has caused my daughter to have severe food allergies. The doctors are stumped that a genetic condition, such as
allergies, suddenly developed in my daughter who comes from a family without any allergies.
, refuse to eat the GMO corn
and when scientific rats eat GMO foods, there children develop food allergies.
) I know this article is from Huffington, but I
can't find the original article, and this article also discusses autism and GMO foods. I'm watching my daughter for autism, because one of my
friends children also has food allergies and autism.
Anyway, I think this whole Bill gates push for food is very good, but using GMO food is not the way to feed the world. Purer crops and breeding them
through standard means is a better than ripping up their genetic code and replacing the missing code with something else.
