- Monsanto hurts the small and organic farmer.
- Monsanto has designed and sell seeds that bear sterile fruit so that farmers will have to buy more seeds for subsequent crops.
- If a farmer does save seed or even plants a nonMonsanto seed next to a Monsanto crop, Monsanto has threatened to sue them for patent infringement.
- If crops cross pollinate, Monsanto claims to legally owns the resulting seed.
- There is no evidence that GMOs are safe. GMOs are banned in Europe, but the US population has been turned into a giant test population for unproven biotechnology.
- GMOs contain their own insecticide – if insects can’t/won’t eat GMOs, why should humans?
- Foods should be labeled if they contain GMOs so that the consumer can make an informed decision.
- Monsanto makes Round-up, one of the most pervasive chemicals used in agribusiness. It kills just about everything except seeds genetically modified to be resistant. So what is the residue doing to humans?
- The “Monsanto Protection Act” was slipped into legislation and protects companies like Monsanto from legal challenges.The law could be used to revoke the ability of individual states to pass GMO-labeling laws. The Monsanto Protection Act needs to be repealed.
