Monsanto: Genetically Unethical

Monsanto (agriculture giant) has made the list of the Twelve Least Ethical Companies... and they won first place. Genetically modified foods are a hot topic in the controversial field of nutrition and food. My point of view is that they already lead to a myriad of existing problems and more will continue to present themselves. Monsanto not only designs frankenfoods, they unfairly sue small farmers who try and grow food ethically. Even if the suits are not successful, by the time the small farmer is through paying their lawyers, they are finished, thus achieving Monsanto's goal.

Book recommendation: The World According to Monsanto by Marie-Monique Robin. This is also a documentary.
