The Gates Foundation & Monsanto? Now What?
That pesky topic of GMOs just won’t go away. I am perplexed about the entire issue of the harmful effect of genetically modified food on humans. But I am not at all perplexed about Monsanto. They are bullies, they have driven small farmers out of business in droves and their tactics are appalling.
When I read about the recent discovery of signficant financial connection between the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and agribusiness titan Monsanto, I was shocked and saddened. I can’t help but wonder, do Bill & Melinda know? They do so much to make our world a better place. Can this be something that Foundation staff did simply to grow the Foundation’s portfolio? Bottom line to me? Not acceptable. Being a good steward of the planet means just that and is the only truly sustainable path.
I haven’t checked 10 sources, I don’t have the resources to go down the rabbit hole of digging more deeply but I would like to know the real deal. It’s that green thinking thing I can’t get past.
Would love to have some feedback/thoughts/more info.
