I don’t mean to belabor the point of healthful foods, but really… is anyone paying attention? People in Europe sure are! And the ONLY reason they’re not paying attention here in the U.S. is because of the “Revolving Door” between Monsanto top-paid employees, and their positions within our government agencies like the FDA and EPA. Oh, and I almost forgot… the Supreme Court!
Yeah, that’s right. Justice Clarence Thomas worked as an attorney for Monsanto before he wrote the majority opinion in the Supreme Court, forever enforcing U.S. Patent Law stating that plants are subject to patent protection under U.S. law (G.E.M. Ag Supply v. Pioneer High-Bred International).
Talk about a conflict of interest?
Think about how this all relates to the world’s food supply! Not only was this a major win for Monsanto, but it tightened the noose around the necks of American farmers by requiring farmers to sign contracts, prohibiting seed saving of any patented seed. The law further allows Monsanto spies to trespass on a farmer’s property and check crops for any violations (even if they are pollinated naturally by genetically modified, windblown pollen or seeds from a neighboring farm!).
Here is a clip from a fantastic documentary covering a variety of issues relating to our nation’s food supply. Monsanto’s corrupt means of monopolizing the world’s food supply are profoundly highlighted in the film. You can purchase Food, Inc. from the list of recommended DVDs in the post below. Buy it… watch it… share it!
A little education of the public about what is going on with our food supply can help to effect major change. Right now, corporate greed is taking over…. all at the expense of our health, and the health of our children.
To your enlightened views!
