Market control and patents for seeds

The author fails to comment about the trend to market monopoly through patents for genetic engeneering of crop seeds, lobbying at governmental agencies, and failure on the part of biotech industries to disclose full facts about research affecting human and animal health and the environment, among other non-sustainable and ethical aspects. Regulation is good, provided it is for the public interest and not private companies'interest.
