The farmers don't really have much choice. Monsanto is run very much like a gangster protection racket. It's up to the people to break Monsanto. If no one buys their poison, the farmers will have incentive to grow real food and Monsanto will have incentive to file for bankruptcy.

So yes, fuck Monsanto.

I've known several farm workers who have Parkinson's.
I wonder if so-called "Parkinson's" isn't just a fancy name for "Pesticide Induced Illness".

The farmer who uses frankenseeds is a failure at his craft.

A good farmer knows how to save seeds from year to year to sow his crops.

Only a failure has to constantly purchase new seeds.
Okay, so I made a twatter account.

Amen.

How is it financially advantageous when Monsanto forces farmers to buy seeds that are genetically engineered NOT to reproduce? That insures a built in market for Monsanto. Also, this is poisoning the soil, taking out nutrients but guess what? Monsanto has fertilizers with synthetic garbage that will make your soil healthy -- for one season and then, guess what? You gotta buy some more. And this doesn't even take into account what working with this stuff does to the physical health of the farmers working with it, nor how it destroys the life of the areas in proximinity to these toxic farms.

The idea that Codex was developed for consumer protection is patently false:

Quote:“Codex Alimentarius” means “food rules” in Latin. The organization was born in 1962 when the UN established the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) as a “Trade Commission”. It was created to regulate, and thus control, every aspect of how food and nutritional supplements are produced and sold to the consumer. It is solely about trade and the profits of multi-national corporations.

And if you really want to read a bone-chilling history of how this all came to be, here is a link to well researched paper by a medical doctor that delineates everything from inception to where we are today: http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/docs/nutricide.pdf

We grow some of our own food and buy quite a bit from Amish farmers. We go into a grocery store about once a month for supplies like paper-based home products and some odds and end like tea and baking supplies.

I really don't want biofortified food. There's plenty of good things from the earth without having to utilize crap ingredients or soaking/spraying seeds and fields with more crap.

PS Cereal is only good if you want to put on pounds quickly or if you have the metabolism of an active child. Even then you have to be selective about what you choose to put in your and their mouths. My apologies to the cereal fans on this forum.

BIOFORTIFIED is how the public is cheated in knowing what they are getting !! Just like aspartame now being able to lable its self as a natural ingredient ! I guess if genetically modified e coli feces is natural that would be true !! https://www.upi.com/Science_News/2013/08...377527919/

Except for Cinnamon toast crunch.  That shit is good for whatever ails you.  Enough sugar to kick diabetes right in the ding ding without even pretending to give a damn.
