Monsanto Causing Farmer Suicides in India

"One very alarming sign that change is needed NOW is the wave of farmer suicides in India. The rate of Indian farmer suicides, for instance, has greatly increased since Bt cotton was introduced in 2002. A publication from the New York University School of Law shows that in 2009 alone, 17,638 Indian farmers committed suicide, which translates to one farmer every 30 minutes.

You have to buy those seeds again to get a good produce. You will not find any news coverage for these protests. You will find full coverage for 'gay rights'. You wont find it unless you know it already and specifically looking for it.

But when Monsanto developed genetically modified (GM) seeds that would resist its own herbicide, the glyphosate-based Roundup, it patented the seeds.  The United States Patent and Trademark Office, for practically all of its history, refused to grant patents on seeds, viewing them as life forms with too many variables to be patented. However, in 1980, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed for seed patents in a 5-4 decision. This laid the groundwork for plenty of corporations to start gaining control of global food supply.  The patenting of seeds is only one of the different ways that Monsanto affects food, farming, and your future health.  Seeds of Profit and Dominance  Over the past 15 years or so, a collection of five giant biotech corporations - Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, Dow, and DuPont - have bought up more than 200 other companies, allowing them to dominate access to seeds.  Monsanto has bec
