Ever notice that soy tastes a bit like RoundUp?
Ok, that's partly a joke, but the truth is that Monsanto virtually owns the US soybean market. Monsanto likes to sell RoundUp; it's their product. So they decided to genetically modify the soybean to be RoundUp resistant. That way, they could just spray the hell out of the whole soy bean field. So then Monsanto began selling their genetically modified seed. Soy farmers used to save their own seed but once the modified genetic material was transferred from the neighboring "Monsanto seed" farm through cross-pollination, the "non-Monsanto" farmer would be greeted by the attorneys for Monsanto. Since no one could fight them, they'd have to sign the agreement with Monsanto, to destroy their seed and buy GMO seed and of course, douse it with Round Up. Killer master plan if you ask me. All you have to do is get one guy to sign on and the rest is up to mother nature. In the end, you own the domestic soy market.
Now, I don't know about you, but the idea of a big bowl of soy-anything is just not very tempting in the first place, to me anyway. But now you GMO it and tell me it's good for me?! Not in my book. So many of those "healthy-choice" promoted products are all rolled up in soy-something. So what are you eating if you are soy crazy; soy milk, yogurt, bars, tofu, goo, etc?
The stuff is hard to avoid, as it's everywhere now. Moderation is a good thing to at least avoid too much of whatever especially when you don't always know.
