The dominant economic groups cannot or silence the discussion on transgenic foods, then they try, through the massive means of communication that also belong to them or are it jeopardize with them under an unavoidable “which had obedience”, to classify the subject in the dichotomy if they are or they are not detrimental for the human health, when this problem in fact includes many other important aspects equal or but that this one.
So that a OHM plantation “renders” this one must include a great earth space, which means that it is due to have of the same or the money to acquire it or to rent it and to cover the costs that mean to face this production.
This space takes care then with a single culture (monoculture) and into the hands of a unique person or company, when before, in the majority of the cases he was used for the culture of several different species (biodiversity) by many small or medium agriculturists.
Here two new problems arise to us since, in the first place we have the passage of a diverse culture to a monoculture, which cause Earth degradation, resistance to weed killers, disappearance of beneficial insects, like the colonizers, among others effects detrimental for the atmosphere.
The other problem that also arises consequently direct is the fact that many small and medium producers are ruined and become indebted because it is created a great dependency of consumptions, Ohms seeds, weed killers of Monsanto and most expensive machineries of direct sowing or because they rented its earth to a vile price to perhaps recover them someday when they have become unproductive, they sold or them by currencies happening to integrate masses of the urban and suburban taken care unemployed people or.
Only in Argentina one calculates that there is but of 300 thousand small or medium producers in these conditions, with the social problem that this means.
Also we must consider that some species modified genetically are contagious and can infect to the no transgenic species of the neighboring fields. Another aspect that we cannot avoid is that often, to extend the cultivable land dismount great earth extensions or whole forests are even destroyed, with all the environmental damages that this brings prepared.
