Monsanto is a giant in the world of GMO. “GMO” stands for “genetically modified organism”. The food you eat may have been genetically modified. This is done for various purposes, for example, to make the growing crop more resistent to viruses or pests.
However, there can be problems and consequences to GMO, as many are finding out around the world. This was mentioned in this video GMO, Cyanide, and Police Officers Crying. Genetically modified grass near Austin, Texas, was putting off cyanide gas and killing horses.
There is a rise in disease in general, including allergies and wheat intolerance causing people to seek “gluten free” diets. I personally believe a lot of this has to do with “GMO” food.
Here is an article about a lawsuit against Monsanta. Just as important are the many links at the bottom of the article for further information about Monsanta and these kinds of issues.
