Why to Boycott GM Food Products

Leaving health issues aside, because there is not enough evidence one way or the other -- the reason anyone who values his or her life should refuse to buy GM foods is that the courts in the U.S. and Canada have interpreted the patent laws in such a way as to make it impossible for anyone, even home gardeners, to save their own seeds for any crops that can cross pollinate with plants whose DNA contains patented genes.

The videos in my two previous posts illustrate the law in action.

  1. Hi. There.
    We found you on tinyfarmblog and wanted to let you know about a yahoo group we have formed for micro farming in Texas. It is vital in these times that we create more community in Texas. If you are intersted we have put up a link to it at our own blog
    we are located on 20 acres in north texas ourselves and really just beginning our journey into micro farming but have found it to be a love and a calling of sorts.
    Many blessings
