6. What's just as outrageous, is that farmers aren't allowed to use seeds grown on their own farms!!!


Setting the dangers of GMO aside for a moment, these companies claim that because of the patented technology in these seeds, farmers aren't allowed to store seeds harvested from the current year's crop for next year, as that would be patent infringement or something.

Amazing.
