i appreciated this article very much. i am really behind the times in learning about companies like monsanto. but i am mad now.

when you go into home depot or walmart to buy seeds..........where do those come from? are they all GMO'S? and does gmo always mean that they are laced with round-up or does gmo just mean that they have removed dna from a carrot and placed it in a bean seed.

selective breeding to me is where you grow a patch of corn. or beans. and you take seeds from the best plant of the bunch. and use only those to plant your garden the next year.

i have not done a lot of research and the research i did do was biased AGAINST monsanto. one thing i did find is that several of monsanto higher ups got appointed to white house posts only to return to monsanto after the next president comes in.
