In Defense of Our Seeds

Jeremy Seifer on The GMO Film Project:

“GMOs represent all that has gone wrong with our food: corporate take over, petro-chemical laden fields, soil degradation, water depletion and pollution, and the most unhealthy, nutrient-deprived food humanity has ever tried to live on.

That could be the case without a GMO, though… that’s just industrial agriculture strangling out small farmers and organic methods with its steroid-puffed muscles. Where GMOs become even more insidious, for me, is in the patenting of life—ownership over a seed, what that seed becomes, and the seeds that it then produces, the privatization of what humanity has held in common for ten thousand years.”
