Pesticide illness triggers anti-Monsanto protest in Argentina
Deutsche Welle - 10/25/2013.

GE Salmon Growing in the Dark in South Dakota
Food & Water Watch - 10/25/2013.
By Tim Schwab - Last week, the Washington Post reported some unwelcoming news to AquaBounty Technologies, the producers of genetically engineered (GE) salmon: grocery stores are lining up to sign a pledge saying they won’t sell the fish if, or when, it is approved by the Food and Drug Administration. But where consumers see potential health concerns, environmental problems and a lot of hype surrounding the benefits of this fish, the state of South Dakota apparently sees dollar signs.

Treehugger - 10/25/2013.
By Chris Tackett - Michael Warren and Natacha Pisarenko from The Associated Press have a blockbuster piece of reporting on the dozens of ways Monsanto's chemical fertilizers and pesticides are poisoning the people of Argentina. Following that report, Monsanto responded by saying that their Roundup line of glyphosate-based weed-killers are safe, but did call for more controls on agrochemicals. This is the same tired response you hear from manufacturers of guns or tobacco or junk food.
