Since corporations are now people, this one needs the death sentence.

When a corporation as large as Monsanto attacks and bullies the small ma and pa farmers and tells them they cannot grow certain crops... and threatens those farmers with huge law suits as they hide behind the FDA, then Monsanto should be destroyed. . . Torn apart . . . Lawyer by lawyer.

During the most severe drought in recent history, the US grew hundreds of millions of tons of corn. The GMO corn is designed to grow big and fast even in severe drought. Monsanto should be taxed at about 50% then we'll all be even.

Wow, there is so much crazy in this article it is hard to imagine someone being so far unhinged from actual science. If someone can point out to me the difference between all the artificial selection we've done over the last 8000 years or so with the precise selection that we're doing now then we'll talk. Fact is, you can't.

Modern scientific genetic engineering produces far more predictable results than any other method before it. Besides, nature cross-mingles DNA all the time (Google Horizontal gene transfer).

Comments in support of GMO's? Who knows why-there's no advantage to them unless you work for the chemical companies or own stock in them. But one of the tools that corporations are using now is infiltrating blogs.

These companies are so full of $hit-first they say, our products are benign but then they say no, they are different and deserve patents.

La stly, can we tone down the rhetoric-I'm getting confused as to who it is that is promoting genocide...

Monsanto = population control the wrong way.

four pro-gmo comments in a row seems suspicious. why so eager to promote it?

They throw most of it away. Arthur Dent above says Monsanto has committed genocide - when ? Monsanto company today was formed in about 2000 out of the Pharmacia who bought old Monsanto. The old Monsanto is now called Pharmacia or Pfizer

They increase yields by preventing insect damage not stopped by chemical insecticides. You can make up all the stories you want but 3 billion acres planted over 16 years and not a single hospitalization but organic food kills people every year. Why aren't you killing with known killers? Because there is no logic to your argument. You have created an anti-GM religion that is not based on any facts but things made up by organic industrialists who want to justify their higher prices ---you have to admit that organic is higher cost.

There are plenty of benefits from gm crops this wis why when they are available 90% of farmers use them - think about that for a moment 90%. They reduce the use of chemical insecticides by massive amounts, they provide additional herbicides for farmers to use such glyphosate and gluphosinate, dicamba etc.

so much nonsense science in this - what I would expect for non-science person trying to piece together science from the internet - where do I begin nearly everything is wrong, incorrect.

Monsanto is committing genocide!!! This what they do is genocide, and every government, every company that works with them should be prosecuted for genocide!!!!!
