October 12th is a day known for many things, one specifically might be World Food Day. Today is a day that many around the world will participate in a March Against Monsanto.
What is Monsanto you ask? Well, by internet search: Monsanto Company is a publicly traded American Multinational Chemical, and Agricultural Biotechnology Corporation headquartered in Creve Coeur, Missouri.
What does that mean, and why would people March AGAINST Mansanto? The belief that GM foods can adversely affect human health, with some of the protesters asserting that such foods cause cancer, infertility, and birth defects. GMOs are also believed to harm the environment, and play a major role in declining bee populations.
Protestors would like for Monsanto to not only label GM foods because as consumers, we have the right to know what we are eating, but to also STOP wreaking havoc on our environment.
