(NaturalNews) It has become quite obvious that organic farmers have been taken advantage of by food giant Monsanto for some time now.

In a court case involving organic farmers and seed producers, suits filed against Monsanto didn't play out as planned.

This case was put before the United States court system as a precautionary measure for farmers in the case that genetically engineered crops "accidentally" end up on organic farmland.

The GMO spreading effect

For example, when corn pollination begins, its byproduct (the pollen) is estimated to drift many of miles from where it originated. At these distances, there's no telling how many other crops can be affected.

These altered organisms do not stay within the confines of their land, and because of this, many organic farmers are being hit with GMO crops that they didn't want in the first place.

It seems that the United States Supreme Court is refusing to help those against Monsanto, which in turn, is not playing out well for many other organic food producers across the country.

Monsanto claims no responsibility, and is actually demanding payment from the farmers who have been impacted by this cross-pollination effect.

This food giant often sues farmers who grow (not by choice) the company's patented and genetically engineered crops without paying the so-called "owed royalties."

Legal battles involving GMOs are nothing new

The courtroom is not an unfamiliar place for Monsanto, but luckily, farmers are starting to fight back!

Dozens of organic food producers have stood up to fight against GMOs, and it has gained worldly attention; yet, it has been a very tough battle.

On June 10, 2013, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit became the most recent court to buddy up with Monsanto. As the facts continue to surface, it is obvious that the power behind this corporation is extremely immense, and it can all be tracked right back to Washington.

The Monsanto Protection Act (as written by Monsanto), was signed into law by President Obama after he had promised back in 2007 that this would never happen.

This is a classic David vs. Goliath scenario, but what most people don't realize is that the majority of the power lies within the people of this country.

If the people cease demand for GMOs, then production will stop - simple as that. Each time an individual buys a product that ties back into the GMO cycle, money goes to those in control.

It really is insane

If thought about logically, this entire situation is pretty ridiculous. Monsanto is literally infecting other people's land, but in turn, is not claiming responsibility.

How is this not seen as unfair?

The truth is that this company has the billions of dollars to come out on top nearly every time, that is unless people begin to wake up and assess this entire situation with a different approach.

Organic farmers who work very hard to provide health conscious people with quality food are being targeted and dismantled by these powerful forces - it's simply not fair.

If you are among those who chose to eat organically, this should anger you. Your health, and the health of your family are at risk - so it is time to act!

You can start by not supporting companies that utilize their products - a list of these exact companies can be found in the resource section below.
