True, Monsanto isn't exactly the most ethically sound company in the world, but what pisses me off is when a lot of people just associate Monsanto with all genetically modified crops or GMCs and just assume that they're bad for the environment, unhealthy, outcompete natural crops, etc etc. However GMCs are really the way forward when it comes to agriculture. There's so many studies out there that have come to the conclusion that genetically modified food does not pose any health risks, and then they do all sorts of things from make them resistant to disease, weather, or pests, to make them produce larger and actually more nutritious yields. So if we can just get rid of the corporate influence from GMCs, and make it so they are not subject to intellectual property law, then I'm all for them.

That first page you sent me has no text on it, and the second one is an opinion piece. Agent orange was used to clear vegetation and destroy enemy food supplies during the Vietnam war. It was not used for agriculture. If it wasn't for agent orange, something else would have been used instead. The cross-pollination issue you are talking about is called 'genetic drift', and has been blown way out of proportion by the anti-GMO crowd. It's far from their main legal concern, but is still being worked on. The 'GMO issue' is based on the fears of people who don't understand how it works. They are still subject to the same safety regulations as all other food. Monsanto is just a corporation; I feel no differently toward them as I do most other corporations.

You have the misfortune of being on the side with the crazies, so even if you are right, all of my attempts to find things to support what you say just lead me to conspiracy / organic food / naturopath, or otherwise 'alternative' pages.

I ask again; what is this serious crap they've done regarding food, and can you provide a proper source?
