Terminator Seeds & Codex Alimentarius

KC | 16.04.2009 14:45 | World

Terminator seeds are genetically modified seeds that produce second generation seeds that are sterile. This is keeping farmers in developing countries forever dependent on a practice designed to prey on farmers. Cross pollination is spreading this criminal anomaly to healthy, normal farms which renders those crops useless in the same fashion.

The title in this article is misleading as it suggests a mass suicide pact among farmers in India. The 1500 suicides have been over several years. This, however, should not detract from the fact that GM crops are causing serious food problems in many parts of the world.

South Africa.
"South African farmers suffered millions of dollars in lost income when 82,000 hectares of genetically-manipulated corn (maize) failed to produce hardly any seeds.The plants look lush and healthy from the outside. Monsanto has offered compensation.

Monsanto blames the failure of the three varieties of corn planted on these farms, in three South African provinces, on alleged ‘underfertilisation processes in the laboratory”. Some 280 of the 1,000 farmers who planted the three varieties of Monsanto corn this year, have reported extensive seedless corn problems."

The world could be one crop failure away from an actual food crisis.
