Please refer to the following links for great concerns regarding Genetically Engineered seeds/crops by Monsanto non-commercial scientists with their views on GMO’s, check out their GMO section

News companies threatened for disclosure: Fox 11 fires reporters wanting to disclose the truth about GMO, rBST harmful steroid in milk
This should help your understanding as to ‘why’ there are ‘real’ concerns regarding Monsanto and their GM seed/crop push around the world. They can hardly be trusted and it is all ‘here-say’ promises with many serious concerns…10years from now nothing will be organic in the conventional sense of seeds/crops…Monsanto will have cross-pollinated all crops as we once knew it since the start of mankind. What new diseases await us is just a matter of time.‘Substantially equivalent’ doesn’t even touch the more dangerous aspect of the loss of bio-diversity and many other major concerns…this is a major problem and the people are going to learn of it in droves and start demanding that companies label their foods GMO-Free ingredients or not buy.
We know too little to make such big moves that pose such devastating realistic/inevitable possibilities.

since the links didn't come out for the Genetically Engineered seeds concerns go to
youtube and search 'The World According to Monsanto'

That should be sufficient to learn the dangers.

As to why we aren't being informed about GE dangers search youtube for 'Fox 11 fires reporters wanting to disclose Monsanto'.

Finally, if you want to know what non-commercial scientist feel about Genetically Engineered seeds/foods go to www . ucsusa . org (no spaces, I put spaces in to allow full website name to show as it is cut out of post).

Contact your congressman at www. opencongress. org and tell them to check more into the dangers of going GE and that we want at the very least labels to include if a product is GE-Free (no GE ingredients at all), currently they will not disclose since Monsanto's commercial scientists say GE foods are 'substantially equivalent'...but there have been no tests on humans and some animals that have eaten GE foods have major issues including death (see video of 'the world according to monsanto' on youtube).

We have MUCH to lose and already Monsanto has 90% of the seeds of the world GE patented, creating terminator seeds so that all farmers have to go to them for repurchase of each crop, and cross pollination will render the world into Monsanto's hands. Defnitely not a Win-Win scenario at any angle. Their claims of more food, cheaper food, greener food, more nutritious and more tastier have not been proven (check out the non-commercial scientits website at www . ucsusa .org )
