Activist Post: Homeland Security is Working for MonsantoQuicklink submitted by Joan Mootry Permalink
|Monsanto and the biotech industry have arranged for Homeland Security to define organic food as a bio-security threat. They don't like the unpatented, free biodiversity that people are working to save, such as open pollinated seeds and crops, and heritage animals raised on small farms - and have deemed them "threats". Only GMO seeds and crops raised on giant mono-culture GMO farms and sprayed with deadly pesticides, and only animals trapped in animal prisons (CAFOs - controlled animal feeding operations) where they are fed on GMOs with pesticides, antibiotics, and hormones, are now defined as "normal" (and safe). For example, Stanford has HUGE stakes in bioterrorism preparedness that includes homeland security funding, as well as having a seat on the National Institute of Health's Office of Biotechnology Activities.|
