Monsanto and the coming food crisis

Climate change is real and present. Farmers are feeing candy to their cattle because grain is increasingly expensive; drought perseveres, frost alerts in southern California...if these conditions increase and in all likelihood they shall, food production at home will become increasingly imperative for a very good reason, aside from increasing prices and shortage:


A few days ago I saw a few pages of the Wall Street Journal, discarded at a restaurant. I saw an article on Monsanto experiencing a 27% increase in GMO seed sales to South America, which evidently is still fertile and productive.

This means more GMO foods will be on their way to the US, where GMO labelling has yet to take any serious hold. I believe the article specified grains as being the focus; WSJ have a paywall so I can't link to the article.

Making your own bread becomes important. I love the Ezekiel 4:9 bread, which is taken from a Bible verse (!). It's a good recipe, find it there.

Also, know which grains go into what foods. Soybeans? That's a lotta GMO. Etc.!
