As the world begins to digest the implications of intellectual property for online censorship, another IP issue threatens an even more fundamental part of our daily lives: our food supply. Backed by legal precedent and armed with seemingly inexhaustible lobbying funds, a handful of multinationals are attempting to use patents on life itself to monopolize the biosphere.
Find out more about the process of patenting life and what it means for the food supply on this week's GRTV Backgrounder.

It's only a conspiracy if it can't be proven... and besides the conspiracy is against The People (although the lying governments would have the sheeple believe the opposite) ;-)

@FedupwithR If that is true, then they are in great danger of scoring an own goal and killing themselves off at the same time. There is so much assumed knowledge in 'academic' research carried out in universities relying heavily on corporate funding and giving the 'punters' the results they want.

Excellent report. It's heart-breaking, disturbing, but also contains uplifting views. The female Indian expert is great to hear. She has a GREAT philosophy about LIFE. I've heard her speak, thru video-recordings, in the past and it's ALWAYS great to hear her speak again.
Monsanto et al are genocidal maniacs, psychopaths, and to hell they should be heading by the time I awake in the morning, if there's justice in this world or life. It's great the Indian govt correctly acted a few times tho.
Another excellent report. There is something strange about wanting to control absolutely everything, up to and including life itself. These people, for corporations are made-up of and owned by humans, must be so devoid of any real joy in life, they have no spirit of generosity or belief in continuance. They want everything, want more, want it now and don't give a damn for the consequences even to their own children. Like greedy infants, they want all the cake even though it will make them sick.
Issuing patents for life should be criminal. The U.S. Government (for the people, by the people) is all about the patenting of life. Those criminals illegalized yet patented the most useful vegetation on earth. Google 6630507.
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
