Subject: Concerned about Power of Monsanto and GMO Foods

As a consumer, I am very concerned that Monsanto is forcing GMO foods upon the public without the public's awareness.  I am also unhappy that Monsanto is forcing Farmers to buy their seeds rather than being able to collect and use their own seeds.  I understand that Monsanto uses threatening tactics to prevent farmers from collecting seeds.
As a consumer of Soy Products I was unhappy to learn that we now have 90 percent GMO in our Soy Crop.  I would prefer not to have any GMO in the foods that I purchase and consume.  However, because so much of the products that are manufactured contain soy, I am unable to avoid GMO products.
I would like to see Monsanto's power to threaten farmers restricted.
