In 1997 more than 90 percent of soybeans in the US were grown conventionally, but in as little as ten years, the Monsanto Biotech crops reached a whopping 90 percent. The numbers for genetically modified RR rapeseed are almost identical.

Moreover, the cheap price of GM-crops leads to gigantic fraud schemes, where more expensive oils, typically Olive oil is being diluted.While the health safety effects of genetically modified variety of soybeans and rapeseeds are hotly debated, even more disturbing "collateral fallout" has recently surfaced.

The study found that some of these formulations lead to DNA damage and cell death within 24 hours.
