    Is it also possible to publicate the powerpoint presentations of this conference? It's pity, I liked to be there. Only too late informed...

    • Eric deCarbonnel says:

      I will see if it is possible to get a copy of the powerpoint presentations. Sorry for not publicizing conference earlier...

    Monsanto-How can you not mention them? Bio-tech is a looming disaster. Eminent soil scientist Don Huber ties Monsanto's glyphosate to newly discovered deadly pathogen causing SDS. Was any of this mentioned by SoyTech at the conference? GM also causes organ damage and infertility in animals. Proven. But due to patent rights, independent scientists cannot do further research. Is this being discussed with your investors? What is Russia's stance on GM?
