Learn why Monsanto and GMO is bad. See what companies have questionable seed-buy practices, and who sells safe seed.
"A genetically modified organism (GMO) or genetically engineered organism (GEO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. These techniques, generally known as recombinant DNA technology, use DNA molecules from different sources, which are combined into one molecule to create a new set of genes. This DNA is then transferred into an organism, giving it modified or novel genes. (wiki)"
"The Monsanto Company is a U.S.-based multinational agricultural biotechnology corporation. It is the world’s leading producer of the herbicide glyphosate, marketed as “Roundup”. Monsanto is also the leading producer of genetically engineered (GE) seed; it sells 90% of the US’s GE seeds. (wiki) Seminis is also listed on this page often, they were bought out by Monsanto and cannot be considered a safe, no-GMO, company."
I think it needs to be explained a little that this list is to be taken with a grain of salt, no pun intended. I think the ingredients like artificial sweeteners, High fructose corn syrup, GMO (genetically modified organism) Corn and Soy and other extreme chemicals that come from and are owned by the Monsanto company are either used or now owned within these companies and used in their products. The importance of this list, shows that Companies are not required to label their products with GMO ingredients or the dangers associated with the chemicals they use, and therefore, this list is here to enlighten those to what could really be in your food and products.
I think "ownership" is a vague and inaccurate term to use. Maybe 'infiltrated' might be a better? This list was gotten from an Organic Farm group I follow on Facebook. So, some person posted this, and the people who follow, have since commented on this image saying that the title of this list needs to be refined and also that some searching done by these members has proved that not ALL products sold under ALL these companies had a Monsanto influence, but that most did. For example, Heinz website claims not to use any GMO products in their ketchup. Doesn't sound very Monsanto-y to me.
So. There you have it. Carry on. Do some research if you're wondering. But I warn ya, Monsanto is sneaky and evasive. You might be hard pressed to find anything of proof, especially while a Presidentially appointed former Monsanto executive sits at the FDA helm.
So, this is a long list, but honestly, I don't buy any of these brands.
What a shame. Look how it's infiltrated into our food and beauty product supply! Yuck. No wonder everyone's fat and has cancer.
