Genetically modified food was introduced to increase crop yields, eradicate the pests damaging cotton and corn and making our favorite vegetables look prettier and last longer. Recent studies have revealed that GMO crops are not larger and weeds are becoming super weeds that are resistant to the herbicides and farmers are more than ever dependent upon the seeds from Monsanto. The GMO plants are mingling with other plants and spreading at an unknown pace, which is making it impossible to certify them as organic any longer. National Institute of Health studies are showing toxicity levels higher than the standard in Roundup Ready harvests. Farm workers are getting sick and so are the livestock that eat the leftover plants.
