    Monsanto needs to be shut down.

    And, this makes me glad I only buy organic whenever possible.

    "Stop the Monsanto Protection Act!

    This week the House of Representatives will consider a provision to House Agricultural Appropriations Bill that will fundamentally undermine the concept of judicial review. Hidden under the guise of a “Farmer Assurance Provision” (Section 733), the provision strips the rights of federal courts to halt the sale and planting of genetically engineered crops during the legal appeals process."

    I can't believe that anybody would re-post moronic lies and misinformation like that.

    The paper that the moron was lying about was actually quite interesting but had nothing whatsoever to do with genetically modified food. It claimed to discover a mechanism by which a plant (any plant) could potentially regulate metabolism of the animals that eat it (raw). However, since then, other labs have been unable to replicate the results and the finding is now in some doubt.

    Too bad it [what was described] is not a viable vector between plants and animals. On the other hand, never underestimate an engineer.

    We of sound mind thank you for being a reader.

    I'm no fan of Monsanto. Basically they have a monopoly on seed. Their pack of lawyers nailing anyone with corn fields ADJACENT to Monsanto fields are worse than the Scientology lawyers. They have to be stopped.

    However, hating this company and misrepresenting what GM foods do are two different things.
