Asylum for those who push GM food and us from them

GM food sounds so attractive until you think about this: Is Monsanto, Bayer, or whomever big corp thinking first about

1. their profit; 2. people's health; 3. dangers to the environment; 4. making crops and farmers more susceptible to crop collapse due to unforeseen or unintended consequences.

Who did not vote for #1 as their first priority? What works best for profit is to plant all the same crop - right. What works best for a new insect, fungus, or bacteria - humans plant all the same crop.
