hardinparamedic: Ruiizu: That's actually beside my point though. Round-up ready crops were advertised as a way to decrease pesticide use; they have had the opposite effect. The fact that they resist herbicides is wholly unrelated to how they were sold to countries and farmers (particularly those in Argentina).

NO THEY WERE NOT.

You are thinking of BT-encoded crops.

Ok. Point taken. You are correct.

My point, how questionable Monsanto's ethics are, still stands. Because it may be construed as a red herring, I'll avoid delving into the geopolitical effects their products have had on so many countries (especially India).

Also maybe no one cares. o-o Who am I to say?
