What are your feelings on Monsanto: The evil corporation in your refrigerator?

Asked by EverRose11 (1016 points ) January 22nd, 2012

Monsantto was f ounded by Missouri pharmacist John Francis Queeny in 1901, Monsanto is literally everywhere. Just about every non-organic food product available to consumers has some sort of connection with Monsanto. Anyone who can read a label knows that corn, soy and cotton can be found in just about every American food product. Upwards of 90% of all corn, soybeans and cotton are grown from genetically engineered seeds, also known as genetically modified organisms (GMOs). These genetically enhanced products appear in around 70% of all American processed food products. And Monsanto controls 90% of all genetically engineered seeds. In other words, Monsanto controls—and owns patents on—most of the American food supply. I recently switched to eating just organic and my health has improved more than I had ever imagined.

I hate what they stand for. I read labels very carefully. I avoid corn syrup and soy in my food.

I don’t care for them either. I’m just waiting for one of their experiments that goes wrong and screws up some part of the world. I try to eat organic whenever I can.

I hope ELF, or the like, bombs them to bits.
I have actually been inside Monsanto’s headquarters.

I’ve been eating organic and local for more than a decade. I still need help with my cholesterol and blood pressure and I have a number of other health problems. Perhaps it’s just what happens when you are 55 years old.

Monsanto isn’t in my fridge. I keep them out.

We eat organic. Local when possible. We do not eat any meat fed with GMO’s, either.

I approve of the large application of fire that some countries have decided on. I just wish it didn’t end at the seeds.

Not everyone can afford organic though, And some farmers are claiming to be organic when they are not, that is the thing.
