“When it comes to collecting the seed for collecting royalties, the GMO companies say, ‘it’s mine’. But when it comes to contamination, cross-pollination, health problems, the response is, ‘we’re not liable.’” ~ Vandana Shiva
Can Monsanto, Bayer, and Syngenta have it both ways? In a true democracy, that wouldn’t be possible. If you make all the money from your ‘product,’ you also have to take responsibility for when your product causes death and destruction. Dr. Vandana Shiva has made this and other extremely salient points regarding the biotech way of business for years. She’s been called an ‘eco-goddess’ and an anti-GMO celebrity.
You can bet the biotech companies try to vilify her. She is very outspoken on what they do for a living – namely patent seeds that require huge amounts of agrochemicals to be grown, bankrupt farmers, and as the republished Seralini study clearly shows, causes cancerous tumors.
