I am writing because I am concerned about the lack of competition and awareness of food ingredient in American agricultural markets.
? Just one company, Monsanto, controls the majority of seeds in the US, and regularly threatens farmers who don't buy its seeds.
? What's in our food, anyway? And why aren't there decent labels telling you where it grew, what chemicals are on it, and if it's genetically modified? I have read many articles from international organizations stating that not only does GMO food have less nutrients, it can also be harmful to organisms that ingest it. This is alarming.
I hope that you will focus on these issues.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to comment.
