Dr Kokayi discusses food safety with JD Hanson of the Center for Food Safely. Dr Kokayi looks at the effect of corporations being given the right to patent living organisms. The US patent office has patented human , animal, and plant genes, and entire animals. By patenting a plant and the pollen from that plant blows in your field you can be sued for having these genetically engineered products on your property. Genetically engineered companies are buying up all of the world’s seeds. Moreover these seeds are programmed to need the pesticides being produced by theses multinationals. The book Your Right to Know focuses on the crisis in finding healthy food and looks at the corporate superstructure in detail. Progress is being made in companies not buying milk from cows on recombinant growth hormone (cows on crack).
