INDIA BANS GE EGGPLANT - MONSANTO 'FAKES' SAFETY DATA

The Indian Government has banned genetically engineered (GE) eggplant after the ex-Director of Monsanto India admitted the corporation provided 'fake scientific data' to regulators. In announcing the moratorium on GE eggplant, Indian Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh, said there was not enough evidence that GE foods were safe to eat and that they didn't harm the environment.

Do we need any more proof than this that Monsanto is up to no good? Those who think GE foods will save the world should be shot. There is no such thing as a free lunch.... we cannot bypass nature in the quest for profits. Congratulations India! In many ways the Indian government is far ahead of ours. Kevin Rudd should get off his high horse and take a look outside, in the real world.

They should put those Monsanto crooks out of business. They are a bunch of criminals worse than the Mafia!

This is really good news! Monsanto is dangerous - to us all, but especially in India where diversity of plants and seedsaving are matters of life and death.
