“Monsanto is operating in the U.S.A. with very secretive and harmful methods that apply to the inhabitants of America as well as the rest of the world. If the food we eat today organic? Is it health for us? Is it even food? With genetically modified seeds Monsanto has copied the genetic coding of numerous products and have outlawed farming methods that use traditional seeds instead of GM seeds. Herbicides and pesticides are highly prevalent in the food we eat and the most disturbing fact is that they are operating successfully in the USA and the in the world without much opposition or criticism. It time the inhabitants of this planet wake up and demand proper methods of growing and producing food!”

Baldeep will be facilitating a discussion, as well as speaking to the serious issues that farmers in India are facing due to the practices of Monsanto.
