Organic farmers suffer somewhat the same consequences as do those with second-hand smoke problems. Their crops can be contaminated by others growing GMO crops.

As said in the Food and Water Watch literature: “Because of some really unfortunate laws, right now, if one of Monsanto‘s genetically engineered crops contaminates an organic farmer, the organic farmer is at fault.

Not to mention that in the past, Monsanto has been very aggressive going after farmers who find contamination, suing them for “using” their crops illegally”.
