The World According to Monsanto

Have you ever heard the term "Frankenstein foods"? Do you know what is being done to our vegetables in order to make them grocery store ready? Why do the local tomatoes grown at the nearby farm look so different from the perfect ruby red ones found at the chain grocery stores. Check out more about the main supplier of seeds and pesticides, Monsanto. You can read more about them on their website, which praises them as "helping farmers grow food more efficiently and in a more sustainable manner." Unfortunately this is done through science and changing the inherent characteristics of seeds. Changing them in such a way as to make them unusable after one crop, amongst other things.

The infamous company that has forced PCBs, Agent Orange, biotech crops and rBGH on the world has more control over global politics, laws and the future of food and water than most people realize. Watch this investigative video that analyzes the inner workings, history and scandalous secrets of one of the world's most powerful corporations--Monsanto.

I've been trying to get discussion going with satire, fwiw.
