First used commercially in 2009, certain farmers in India’s Punjab region have previously been granted permission by Pepsi to grow the spuds on a buyback scheme. However, the firm’s temper fizzed over after they discovered that Gujarati farmers were allegedly growing them without a license, therefore violating the firm’s statutory rights. PepsiCo is seeking damages in excess of $1 million from the growers.

Calling the case a “very serious issue,” Kapil Shah of the Jatan Trust advocacy group said farmers were being sued “to intimidate them” and could be used by other seed and food corporations to bully others in future. He added that the farmers may have unwittingly sowed the crops from locally-sourced farm-saved seed and alleged they were victims of a sting operation organized by Pepsi, where hired private investigators posed as potential buyers in order to gain video footage and access to samples for further testing.

Thanks @alienteck for writing this post. Even I was not aware that PepsiCo used genetically modified potato for lays chips production. Now same company is trying to harass farmers.
Note: I will boycott lays and PepsiCo product from now on (I don’t drink any cool drink or other packaged beverage).

Legally speaking Pepsi has right to sue the farmers for breaking their contract and as a future deterrent.. but It shows how their business works.

If this gets enough public attention then Pepsi could be facing serious PR issue.

But as a MNC that’s what they are supposed to do. Otherwise soon other contractual farmers might start to do the same.

I’m most interested in what our courts have to say here.

On a serious note. Yes GMO (genetically modified organisms) can be unpredictably dangerous but most  of the peer reviewed studies have been a inconclusive

…. and my opinion is as long as they don’t splice any toxic animal/ insect DNA or toxic plant DNA  in our food GMO foods are relatively safe.

I’m kidding we have no idea what are the long term effects and neither do the scientific community and regulatory authorities.

So basically ( potentially) we’re point_right doughnut

Yea that’s why over 50% of amerikans are obese compared to 5% of Indians, I am talking about they can lose half their weight and still not be normal for their age and height.. In 25 years 50% of Indians will look like that too. In the 70’s only 10% of amerikans were obese..

The food is not digestible and useable. Hence the body stores it as fat. Only problem is the body can never use it and it has to be extracted. They have places which milk it and sell it to cosmetic companies since it is hypo allergenic.. and not as controversial as using dead babies in cosmetics..

I had stopped eating lays chips since I grew frustated when they began to fill 90% of the packet with air! And ate only local potato chips from the neighbourhood bakery.
Also I wish Indians stopped consuming peps, fanta and coca cola as they’re nothing but pure health hazards. Drink coconut water, sugarcane juice, etc as they’re not only delicious and health friendly but also one can directly support our small scale farmers/self employees.
P.S. I have nothing against MNCs but I loathe those who infringed our health and bully local farmers/sellers.

well lets be honest buddy. MNC are here to make money and to do that they will go to any length. Cigarette companies did everything they can to keep people in dark for decades. They staged paid research which indicated their product is harmless, spent million on PR and advertising and used nicotine in such fine amount which will make people addicted.
Note: you should have everything against MNC. these pepsi and cola companies are selling nothing but sweet poison.

do you feel a lump on the back of your head where your third eye is coming out of?

If not then dont worry.. But doing it for 20 years can definitely cause problems..

I was doing editing on a paper on public health, people who eat meat gets all kinds of diseases, people who are vegetarians also get all kinds of diseases.. Just different ones.. So it seems not eating is whats needed for a long healthy life..

Excess is what causes sudden death.

Microwaving food also causes problems similar to this.. Do not use a microwave to cook food, only to heat it.

Man why will you throw it. If (by chance) a mutation occurs then you can become a real Spiderman, hulk or other person with superpower. So start eating as much as you can to fasten this process to become real walking talking superhero.

Only microwaves which disrupt cells and cause water molecules to vibrate and displace atoms. They are then not water molecules and the body can not absorb it. But heating is fine since it dont boil or cook it. 100 years ago cancer was very rare.. Same problem with radio cell towers.. ionizing radiation causes cell disruption.

The primary cause of cancer is industrial farming and construction. It digs into the top soil where polonium is released. You only need 1 or 2 atoms to inhale it or get into your food supply.. It is not really dangerous as your skin will block the radiation.. Unless you are marie curie and decides to see what a cloud of it would do.. Cigarette companies spent like $50 Billion in trying to filter it out and failed..

I saw some 10 TEN year old girls who looked llike they were 25 or30 after drinking milk.. The cows were given hormones so they would grow faster. You would never tell they were children.

I’m not surprised at all. I saw an article last year that fish in   rivers near major American cities have started facing hormonal and other bio- chemicals  imbalance because humans were using too much prescription drugs. Those drug molecules leave our body through  our urine … Sometimes   Unchanged… Sometimes ad metabolites… then they end up in rivers through sewage system…. then start effecting fish snd other Life forms.

We are taking too much viagra and fish are getting boners too. stuck_out_tongue grinning

A neighbourhood 3 years old girl look like 10 years old overweight kid! When I learned her real age i was shocked. The poor kid can’t even walk for 5 mins without getting out of breath and her parents still feed her kfc, fanta, maggi and all the shit that a pediatrician will scream NOT to feed!
