A big no to Monsanto's genetically modified seed

It is said we are what we eat.   But does that mean we have to ingest food which is bad for one or full of chemicals?     Certainly not!.... as many are now saying - loud and clear.    There is a concerted movement, worldwide, against Monsanto in relation to its genetically modified seed.    







  • Research studies have shown that Monsanto’s genetically-modified foods can lead to serious health conditions such as the development of cancer tumors, infertility and birth defects.
  • In the United States, the FDA, the agency tasked with ensuring food safety for the population, is steered by ex-Monsanto executives, and we feel that’s a questionable conflict of interests and explains the lack of government-led research on the long-term effects of GM products.
  • Recently, the U.S. Congress and president collectively passed the nicknamed “Monsanto Protection Act” that, among other things, bans courts from halting the sale of Monsanto’s genetically-modified seeds.
  • For too long, Monsanto has been the benefactor of corporate subsidies and political favoritism. Organic and small farmers suffer losses while Monsanto continues to forge its monopoly over the world’s food supply, including exclusive patenting rights over seeds and genetic makeup.
  • Monsanto's GM seeds are harmful to the environment; for example, scientists have indicated they have contributed to Colony Collapse Disorder among the world's bee population.


"For the sake of ourselves and future generations we need to reclaim our food supply," offers another take of 'Why #MarchAgainstMonsanto.'  "We need to start a grassroots revolution against destructive and voracious agribusiness. The seed for this has already been planted. All around, people are rallying to save biodiversity, to practice agriculture with respect for people and nature, to develop technologies that don’t rely on poison or genetic engineering."

"Wake Up"

The message is loud and clear....and as you watch this, remember that it was on Israeli TV - not some anti-semitic or anti-Israel program somewhere in the world.
