Genetic Engineering + Seeds

Whoever patents seeds has control over the entire food production right from the onset.

Therefore it is not surprising that pesticide and fertilizer companies got in to the seed business, submitted patents and battle for predominance on the global market.

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) spread out through reproduction; they mix with other species and can eliminate the traditional seed varieties forever. It has been proven that the cultivation of genetically modified types need more pesticides and fertilizers, are less resistant and are less profitable than the local breeds. On top of that, GMO seeds need to be bought annually.

There are hundreds of reports and observations about health problems related to the cultivation and consumption of GMO, as well as the contamination of water and the endangerment of bees. Activists, scientists and farmers have been fighting for 30 years against the intensive lobbying and the false promises of the GMO-giants.

"The beauty of seed is that out of one you can get millions. And that's an economics of abundance. [...] The economics and technology of hybridization, of genetic modification is a deliberate creation of scarcity." - Vandana Shiva
