GMOs in Hawaii

4 Jul

If I am concerned about GMOs, than I am concerned about those who produce and support GMOs.  Especially when it is happening so close to home.

I was delaying dropping the M-word, but I just have to share what I learned. So here it goes…Monsanto is a huge player in the GMO world. Not so fun fact: they also made Agent Orange.

They made roundup (the weed killer) resistant seeds.  Now, when seeds allow crops to resist roundup, farmers are able to spray the poison in larger quantities on their field.

Consequently, this means 2 things:

1. More roundup sprayed on fruits and veggies that we end up eating

2. More money for Monsanto because they can sell more roundup

I just watched an insightful trailer and learned alot about GMOs, Monsanto (more later about them), Kamehameha School and politics in Hawaii. Just from the trailer. Needless to say, I can’t wait to watch the entire film about GMOs in Hawaii--and I’m going to do that right now.

Check the trailer out:
