Think again. There is so much debate and controversy about genetic engineering and it has been going on for far longer than most would think. I really think it began innocently enough, but since the mid 1990s this field has saturated our food supplies, and it has never been "big" news, if they could help it. I think problems really began as and became more in the headlines when they took genetic engineering from the "drawing board" and "test cages" to indiscriminately going "live" and using us, the general public, as their "test subjects", and now we are "living and dying" from it. Their attitudes of big money, power, and greed have coerced other industries i.e. big pharma and insurance companies to be their "bedfellows" in the underbelly of our very lives.
Early history of GMOs
Monsanto (and others like them) don't even try to "dumb us down" when it comes to our food supply and GMOs ... they just try to keep themselves out of the mainstream media (they all have their price), flying under the radar, continuing to be a harm to crops and animals. It not only affects the field crops, but also animals they are using for "testing"; also a harm to the animals they "fatten up" ... for fast profit and, ultimately, doing harm to the entire food industry ... worldwide ... and all of us who are, often unknowingly, ingesting GMO foods.
