I am very concerned that the centralized ownership of seeds by just a few companies such as Monsanto will eliminate the needed diversity and freedom to grow our own food, in a world where more and more localized food production will be essential for the prosperity of America. I have a small organic food farm and it is a crime that we allow genetically modified seeds into our food supply without even telling the public about them. We need MORE information given to us, so we make better informed choices... only then will the government have succeeded in promoting a more democratic America. Please ensure that we are free to grow and buy organic foods not controlled by multinational corporations, so we ensure a healthier America for future generations.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to comment.
