Vandana Shiva on the Problem with Genetically Modified Seeds
July 13, 2012

Bill talks to scientist and philosopher Vandana Shiva, who’s become a rock star in the global battle over genetically modified seeds. These seeds — considered “intellectual property” by the big companies who own the patents — are globally marketed to monopolize food production and profits. Opponents challenge the safety of genetically modified seeds, claiming they also harm the environment, are more costly, and leave local farmers deep in debt as well as dependent on suppliers. Shiva, who founded a movement in India to promote native seeds, links genetic tinkering to problems in our ecology, economy, and humanity, and sees this as the latest battleground in the war on Planet Earth.

  2. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that «perfect balance» between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!

  9. angie, i never had prosciutto before but they are available here and it's very expensive, one day i think i will just spend some money on it and try that and see how it taste like. btw, i didnt know that sweet potatoes are such a scarce item over there, here we have endless supply all year round..i think you would probably love them too in your salad!

    I completely agree that GMO seeds is very harmful for people and for local farm business.
    During approximately 10 years GMO seeds suppliers replaced with 90% original natural seeds with expensive infertile GMO seeds. These seeds yield a harvest of only 1 year and farmer must to buy it again for high cost.
    Fruits and vegetables grown from gmo seeds do not have high nutritional characteristics and are often tasteless.
