    Monsanto is Killing You and your Family

    Artificial manipulation of nature rather than honoring of nature

    Instead of working with the beauty, the genius and the abundance that has already been engineered into nature, Monsanto seeks to violate nature, overriding healthy plant genes with poison genes that generate insecticides right inside the crops.

    Instead of honoring the natural ability of seeds to reproduce generation after generation, Monsanto develops "terminator seed" technology that causes seeds to self-terminate after one generation. This, by itself, is a heinous crime against nature, humankind and planet Earth. It is a crime worse than the #$%$ holocaust, for terminator seeds threaten ALL human life on our planet... billions of lives are threatened by the behavior of Monsanto.

    • What about citrus that is bred to not produce seeds or the bananas that are triploid? None of these possess seeds either. You can't plant strawberry seeds and get decent plants because of polyploidy. Humans have been genetically modifying plants for 20, 000 years. Nature gave us useless weeds. Humans turned them into crops. Learn about crop domestication and where you food comes from.

    • yeou knowledge about this is less than a 2 year old - they weren't fooled by all the incorrect /wrong information out there

    • falcon, how can anyone still believe the "terminator seed" story anymore? Did you miss the recent Supreme Court Case, Monsanto vs Bowman? I'll give you a hint - Monsanto sued Bowman for planting second generation seed. Why would they care if it was sterile?

      But also, if sterile seed is such a crime against nature, have you also spoken out against seedless grapes? How about bananas? Do you think these fruits came about naturally? Again, I'll give you a hint. They were treated to have an extra chromosome, hence sterile.

      Now obviously you didn't make this up. You read it somewhere and believed it. Now that you know you were lied to, does it make you angry at the liar, or at us?

    • There are no commercially available seeds with "terminator" technology. If there were, how do you explain the behavior of the intellectual property thieves who hoard seed with the desired traits for replanting? If the seeds would self-terminate after one generation there would be no hoarding.

      "" Monsanto develops "terminator seed" technology that causes seeds to self-terminate after one generation. ""

      Almost all corn seed used today GMO or not is high yielding Hi-Bred seed. All of these seeds are created by selective pollination. When the plants grown from these seeds open pollinate in the field they produce seed that is completely different and may grow plants that produce very little corn ,certainly not as much as the Hi-bred parent. They are self terminating after 1 generation and this has been going on for over 50 years.
