VIDEO: Farmers Commit Suicide in Vidarbha by Drinking Monsanto Pesticides

We can participate in stopping things like this by avoiding GMO foods: buy organic, buy from small farms where you know the practices, avoid the foods we know are GMO-- corn, soy, canola, cottonseed, Hawaiian Papaya. See http://www.responsibletechnology.org/GMFree/Home/index.cfm for more information and a shopping guide.

We have to muster our outrage, to think beyond our health and our families . . .

That is absolutely terrifying... All the more reason for us to grow our own food and support local farmers.

Terrifying, sobering, saddening. I totally agree. We have to get back to local, face-to-face transactions in agriculture and probably in all things. The opposite of a world economy . . .
