The Supreme Court is agreeing to hear a dispute between a soybean farmer and Monsanto Co. over the company’s efforts to limit farmer’s use of its patented, genetically engineered Roundup Ready seeds.

The justices say they will hear an appeal from Indiana farmer Vernon Hugh Bowman, who is trying to fend off Monsanto’s lawsuit claiming Bowman made unauthorized use of the seeds.

Monsanto’s patented soybean seeds have been genetically engineered to resist its Roundup brand herbicide. When Roundup is sprayed on a field, the product will kill the weeds without harming the crop.

The Obama administration urged the court not to take the case and warned that the outcome could affect patents involving DNA molecules, nanotechnologies and other self-replicating technologies.

Well only someone with a vested interest in the Monsanto bottom line would stand in the way of making sure the public is both protected and informed about GMO foods.

According to Reuters:

“Environmentalists, consumer groups and plant scientists from several countries are warning that heavy use of the chemical over the years is causing dangerous problems for plants, people and animals alike.”

Monsanto is also only an FDA approval away from its latest monstrosity — soybeans that have been genetically modified to produce omega-3 fats. That FDA approval is expected this year.

Monsanto plans to include GM soybean oil in every product it can — baked goods, baking mixes, breakfast cereals, cheeses, frozen dairy desserts, pasta, gravies and sauces, fruit juices, snack foods, candy, soups, and more.  Source: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/04/29/monsanto-chemical-shown-to-cause-infertility-and-super-weeds.aspx
