    I love the fact that you mentioned Monsanto. It is a big problem and they are hijacking our food supply. I worked on an organic farm for a nice scottish couple, its called WWOOFing, I don’t know if you’ve heard of it.

    All them pesticides definitely have negative effects on our health. Does monsato control organic food in the UK as well?

    • Robert ClackRobert Clack

      Hi Josh, Thanks for your comment. I checked out the WWOOFing and found it quite interesting. Definitely wished I would have known about it before. It certainly seems like a educational opportunity for many. The World needs that. http://wwoof.net/

      In regards to the UK I haven’t checked although somewhere it seems they made some actions against Monsanto. We should both check it out. Monsanto is such a selfish business, knowingly destroying land for profit. Very difficult to comprehend being that callous.

      Well, on that positive note your comment was wonderful.

      All the Best to you.

      Robert

    Thanks for the interesting read. I wasn’t full aware of all the negative side effects of GMO foods.

    I would say though, the primary reason GMO was introduced is due to the ever expanding human population. There’s simply not enough food for everyone so science needs to come in and play a part.

    What do you think?

    • Robert ClackRobert Clack

      Good to hear from you.

      Yes, there are many side effects of GMO and many more I am sure to come in the future.

      I look forward to that time we turn our efforts towards Organic.We need those who have respect for building the soil for future. Our surest answer is to get everyone involved gardening on a larger scale or very small scale. Science has determined our soil is dying. We can do it.
