Anthony Gucciardi points out that research indicates that Monsanto is responsible for farmer suicides at a rate of one every 30 minutes.

However, just like those farming regions that became known as the “suicide belt,” this lawsuit against Monsanto is due to the company reportedly taxing the farmers to financial shambles with ridiculous royalty charges.

No this is not a joke but a lot of people are laughing!

When it comes to agriculture, the World Food Prize is the equivalent of the Oscars. This year, the prestigious award went the mastermind behind Monsanto’s big move into genetically modified crops. In foodie terms, that is like a commercial blockbuster winning best picture rather than an independent, artsy film.
