actualities with possibilities about where our food has come

It is indisputable that owning all seed genomes and patenting
growth and distribution of food is hugely profitable. It is a good
“business decision” to dominate, even monopolize commodities
such as food or water, no matter the consequences affecting

industry. Huge slates of new pharmaceuticals and medical
procedures that will heavily increase the “bottom line” to
stockholders and “subsidiaries.”

fuel, there is no stopping them. That is, unless one is willing
to speak up and protect their right to live their own lives as
they see fit, which includes growing one’s own food,
buying from small local farmers who forego the chemicals,
toxins, poisons, pesticides and gmo (genetically modified)
that are exceedingly profitable.
