What followed was a fifteen year corporate battle between the UC Berkeley biologist and Syngenta.

    The whole chemical issue will never be fixed in North America, we have one major legal problem that stands in the way, this is called lobbiests (organized bribery) Almost all of these corporations make huge campaign contributions to key players and parties and they want something for this, of course they will never admit to it but its a fact.They have bought and paid for all the players in the political forum to act on issues that benifitts them. These chemicals are poison, they all know that, They ont care, the bottom line is money, These farmers know that it’s no good for them, there families, there fields and the water table but they have to use it of they will not make the money they need. It all comes down to money. We “The people” need to take back our government, unless we stop the corruption the corporation will continue to rape and pillage the land and enviroment If the TPP goes thru we are FU***D. We have to reign these corporations in not give them all the power to do as they want and we can do nothing

    We had frogs down in Henderson MN (Minnesota River Valley) that had five legs, and one eye. Of course the media reported about it once then clammed up tight about it. Frogs, newts, salamanders etc. are the barometer of the wetlands. this discovery was made by grade schoolers on a nature hike.

    I think anything to do with food or the production of food and the preservation of water needs to be removed from the political arena. These life altering issues are far more important than money and cannot even be measured in money.
