I respectfully submit that you are missing the major point of the protest. The 'activists' are not suggesting that Monsanto stop producing gmo foods, concerned people are demanding that the gmo label be placed on foods in the grocery store so people can decide for themselves what to buy! And they want this because not enough is known of what the chemical processes that make foods genetically modified does to the bodies of human beings; we need more research (independently of vested interests, that is).

The problem with activists is that they frequently forget to look at the full picture. While Monsanto may indeed be guilty of many wrongs, this does not mean that all research into genetic manipulation must cease. Fine tune your action, activists! There is a need for research in food production methods and indeed gene manipulation is a part of that necessary research. You would stop all scientific research, if you had the power. Would you have us return to the dark ages?

I agree Elfi. Why do you think diabetes is on the rise. Look at Mosanto's sweetner. Japan has had a natural sweetner (low calories) for generation and Monsanto is the only one in our unsweetened drinks. Hmmm FDA must be owned by Monsanto

Dear Wolfe, I think you are very confused. There is no need to manipulate genes. We need to learn to conserve, to preserve, to reuse, to respect. In the developed world we waste as much food as we consume (if not more). We waste water and energy and paper. We produce clothes that we do not need and make gadgets to last 5 years when they could last 15 or more. We are ruled by an economy that is voracious, insatiable.

Permaculture (basically age-old sound gardening principles), have greened areas of desert (please look at videos on YouTube). investment in such projects would be vastly more positive than anything that Monsanto has ever produced or is likely to. Some governments, like the government of Jordan (one of the driest countries of the world with a very hight population) has been investing in such projects now for some time. In nature genes adapt very slowly. Monsanto's little lab men like to...

Permaculture (basically age-old sound gardening principles), have greened areas of desert (please look at videos on YouTube). investment in such projects would be vastly more positive than anything that Monsanto has ever produced or is likely to. Some governments, like the government of Jordan (one of the driest countries of the world with a very hight population) has been investing in such projects now for some time. In nature genes adapt very slowly. Monsanto's little lab men like to play God. In fact they are obsessive and very disconnected from nature and our experience of 'the world'. I happen to know a couple and it struck me that both were intent on 'playing' with their experiments; quite 'autistic' in their lack of interest in the real world. They would be quite happy just tinkering with genes for the sake of satisfying their curiosity and this would be fine in itself, but this tinkering is expensive, so a market must be found. The same applies to many chemicals and pharmaceutical products of all sorts - medicinal and say cleaning products. Monsanto is interested in money. That is the ultimate aim.

And what if all scientific research is stopped ? Will it put an end to our existence ? The biggest problem we have with most of todays scientists (mind you am a scientist too with advanced capacity in chemistry) is their inability to give due regard to God (nature for the atheists). If you look at the period when muslims made colossal scientific breakthroughs that later laid the foundation for most of our disciplines today, they did so with humility and respect for the right of God; infact most of the studies they conducted was triggered by many verses in their scripture (Qur'an).

Wolfe... the problem is that we ARE in the dark ages when companies like Monsanto can patent and monopolize seeds. It is now illegal in many places to save your own seeds from vegetable plants. What happened to our individual free will? I can suggest that you, and everybody else watch a film (on youtube) called 'Thrive'. It will answer a lot of questions... and start a whole lot more! I wish peace and a happy, prosperous life to you all.

First Monsanto must be brought down. This is not the way to nurture the earth and help mankind and the rest of life survive. Gene manipulation within a plant is possibly acceptable but putting genes in plants so you can spray more and increase Monsanto profits is desecrating the earth and poisoning people and all life. Putting genes from an eel into salmon is wrong. Changing an apple so that it last longer is wrong. The whole way this is done at present is beyond human capabilities. Keep it in the lab for experiments.. Hugh Halliday.

Yes, genetic maniulation should almost cease - only stem cell research should continue. The trouble is that the way we put modified genes into plants is inside viruses. These spread. We cannot control our GM crops. They just become part of the environment, in the long run. This depletes soil in one direction or another because we are growing something that is lopsided in it's nutrient uptake - it must be! It is not meant to be! It will affect every being in the ecosystem that it affects and...

It will affect every being in the ecosystem that it affects and we don't know how many ecosystems any one plant will affect. Also, it's a shortcut rubbish way to sort out our problems of food shortage. Utter nonsense. The way to sort it out is changing power relations / trade relations and so on.

Hi Shirley, I understand your passion, but it should not extend to emotional threats, this seriously undermines what should be a debate on solid grounds, where we can justify our concerns. This also applies to Wolfe- the debate polarises the issue, however the industry must accept some responsibility for this through lack of transparency- and using the old, feed the world does not wash with oilseeds which produce more oil for cars is tantamount to an adaddmission that it is how we use our finite soil not the volume that is the problem

As a former representative of the Network of Concerned Farmers for SA it was sad to note the canola produced on Eyre Peninsular a few years ago was snapped up for cars, a massive waste. When we come up with a genuinely positive crop- for instance a perennial grain which fixes nitrogen, and is not heavily reliant on herbicides- maybe that would be worthy of consideration, but at the moment much research is boutique locking in of fertiliser/herbicides to offshore companies- I do support...

The point is well made and I agree that activists sometimes are extreme and fanatic. If it were not that corporations are not run on logic, ethics, or considerations as to the cause and effect of people or the earth. They are run on ONE principal and that is the creation of profit. Thus, all other principals do not enter into the considerations. The earth has all but been destroyed in a mere 150 years. There is no federal agency that must approve, on humane or environmental grounds, plans...
