Show Highlights:

Monsanto now owns 55% of all the seed companies in the world. Not just in commercial agriculture, seed companies that sell packages at Walmart and your favorite nursery.

Listen to this compelling hour with Andrew Kimbrell, Executive Director of The Center for food safety and author of several books on genetic engineering of the food supply and the consequences.

Monsanto owns 90% of the cotton seeds. Since the introduction of GMO crops, sold on the concept they will require less chemicals, just the opposite is happening.

The weeds are cleaver and become resistant to chemicals, similar to antibiotics, and it always takes more. The sales of chemicals worldwide grows with GMO proliferation.

You’ll want to plant a garden after listening to this. Stay tuned for a big push by many groups to get mandatory labeling of all GMO foods legislated in Congress.

Soy is virtually all genetically modified now.
