For those of you that want to eat organic and think 3D printed food has no place in that equation…
In the future, you can download the DNA sequence for a perfect organic tomato seed for (or any vegetable you want), pop in your nucleotide printer cartridge and have yourself an anti-monsanto harvest.
And then…Monsanto will seize to exist? Am I allowed to dream of such a perfect world?!
Monsanto might be the one selling you the DNA sequence…
Anonymous asked: Sorry if i am bothering you with such a petty question or if this has been elaborated on in the past, but i was wondering what your overall thoughts on monsanto are?
Overall thoughts: Monsanto is a disturbing corporation with some vile ideas and practices.
If you don’t want GMOs, don’t eat them, don’t buy them and, heck, don’t buy anything from companies that support GMOs.
But don’t be a dip shit and try and block others from GMOs and go as far as destroying GMOs. Not only is that someone else’s private property, it’s the key to feeding humanity. Without it, it’s pretty damn hard to feed the planet.
On the flip side, fuck Monsanto.
Not for their creation and push of GMOs, I have no problem with that. Fuck Monsanto for their illegal enforcement of patents.
guess how long we’ve been genetically modifying plants and animals
Since before Gregor Mendel figured it out with peas, motherfuckers.
I don’t think selective breeding is the same thing as genetic modification.
Selective breeding is genetic modification.
There’s a difference between altering the genetics of food to help human nutrition and hopefully increasing corporate profits as opposed to altering the genetics of food to increase corporate profits regardless of the impact on human nutrition.
I’m all for the former and 100% against the latter.
Of course this is a complex issue, a lot more complex than many want to admit. People are also under the impression that we have no food on this planet and without GMOs, we’d all starve, which is false. We waste almost as much food in a year than we eat.
GMOs have also created an entirely new issue and that’s of genetic patenting. Regardless of how you feel about IP Law in general, it’s pretty easy to see why genetic patenting of life is dangerous and wrong.
