Genetic Engineering + Seeds

Who patent seeds has control over the entire food production right from the beginning.

Therefor it is no surprise that traditional pesticide and fertilizer producers got in to the seed business, submit patents and meanwhile battle for the predominance on the global market.

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) can also spread out through reproduction; they can mix with other species and eliminate the traditional seed varieties forever. It is proven that cultivation of genetically modified types need more pesticides and fertilizers, are less resistant and less profitable yielding than the local breeds. Furthermore, 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 are fighting since 30 years against the intensive lobbying and the false promises of the GMO-giants like the security of the food production.

"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
