SAN DIEGO, Ca. On Saturday activists from around the world united to march against Monsanto, including here in San Diego.
Monsanto is a large company that sells seeds to farmers with traits developed through bio-technology, and crop protection chemicals.
Protestors say research shows Monsanto’s genetically-modified foods can lead to serious health conditions, including tumors, infertility and birth defects.
Congress recently signed an act banning courts from halting the sale of Monsanto’s GMO seeds and protestors say it’s not right.
Activists encourage folks to buy organic and boycott Monsanto-owned companies.
Monsanto Co., based in St. Louis, said Saturday that it respects people’s rights to express their opinion, but believes its seeds help farmers produce more food, while conserving water and energy.
