    He means GMOs in food.

    It's hard to find any corn that hasn't been "genetically-modified" anymore. The corn in your kids' breakfast cereals is almost certainly GM.

    The U.S. Army could transform Afghanistan into the peaceful, prosperous Scandinavia of Central Asia, but Civilian-in-Chief Obama just doesn't have the cojones to give the order.

    Like it or not we are all consuming GMO. As you said corn is almost all GMO, in the US anyway. Sugar beets grown in the US are almost all GMO. I think sugar made from sugar cane is still the real deal. Monsanto makes the crops resistant to Roundup herbicide, which they sell. Monsanto also sell GMO seeds, and in many cases the farmers are required to but the seeds.
    The scary thing is sugar from beets and corn sweetener is used extensively in other food products from cereal to candy bars.

    The one thing that money can not buy you.

    It sure can help in getting cured, providing there is a cure.

    The farmers are required to buy seeds from Monsanto because one of the first modifications Monsanto puts into their GMOs for public growing is that the seeds they produce aren't viable, so the farmers can't hold back seed for next season.

    This means in the case of an economic collapse in this country, which many say is coming, the farmers (and even those who might depend on a home garden) cannot become self-sufficient.

    For this alone Monsanto should be fined into oblivion.

    What ever happens in the U.S. affects us too.

    It is pretty scarey what is going on now.

    Some say that the U.S. is pretty well bankrupt!
