We the people are speaking. I belong to a few organizations and sign many petitions all to fall on deaf ears. I think more drastic measures will need to be taken in order to be taken seriously and for any changes to occur.

They made a movie out of it or rather a documentary called "Food Inc." It got a lot of publicity. People were outraged - nothing changed.

Could we find a newscaster (like Rachel Maddow) who would be interested? I'm traveling right now and can't pursue it, but maybe when I get home in a couple of weeks.

I too, have written letters to only have lame responses sent back to me. They all have an agenda and refuse to be deterred from it. Who are we to get in their way? (I'm being facetious of course). I concur with everyone here. It's actually nice to hear that others are aware of this. I've had so many conversations with people that have been completely oblivious.

Monsanto, if not the origonator, has long been a major contributer to "Frankenfood"! If they are allowed to continue, I beleive that soon we will all starve from destruction of our food supply due to the desruction of our whole ecosystem.

I write to mine all of the time too, but it hasn't had much of an effect. We need to put pressure on the White House to appoint people who will clean up the FDA. That entity is an abomination!

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

I wrote to my congressman and senators the last two years. They don't care if one person writes. Everyone who is concerned about it should write or call. If enough people get outraged, maybe they will do something about it.

I didn't even read this article, because I don't want to get my blood pressure up all over again. It's outrageous that GMO products are banned in Europe but not here. Another thing that gets me up on my soapbox is that pesticides that are banned here, are used in Mexico and other countries in South America, who can then sell their produce here.

So support your local farmer and also grow your own organic vegetables!

Thanks for posting the article emoticon emoticon

That's what happens when we allow our retired government officials lobby our current government politician's for companies like this. What's worse is that our government has these lobbiest and companies present what they want for laws and then congress and the senate vote them into law. We haven't had a say in what will go into law for decades if not longer. When the leader of the senate tells our senators to vote for the presidents bills and to read them later, which just happened, anything can happen. Such as the president saying we will take care of everyone including the illegals and that they will bill our checking and savings accounts to for the new health care that they passed. We are now being led as though we are communist citizens. Monsanto is only a small part of the big picture of the powers that be and it's not us!

what makes him more unstoppable is the fact he's in bed with our government and vice versa. It is such a conflict of interest for our government to have anything whatsoever to do with this monster.

"Monsanto's product has changed from poison to food, but it has held true to its history of violating the rights and health of people around the globe. Monsanto is a 100% committed to the sale of their seeds of destruction no matter what it takes: bullying, infiltration of high government offices with company friendly individuals, or intimidation."
