"Monsanto’s (MON +2.8%) doing a lot of things right," OptionMonster’s Jon Najarian tells CNBC, adding the stock's two-year rise could continue as demand grows for MON’s genetically engineered, drought-resistant seeds. Shares are strong today, as investors focus on Goldman's upgrade rather than a study that said rats developed tumors after being exposed to certain MON products.

    well, dacama, monsanto, and ogm in general have very bad press since ever. I would like to have an answer to a very simple question : how many millions human beings would have died from starvation if ogm etc were not able to multiply output per acre of crops ? I like better human beings,and if rats signal a potential danger, let's find a solution out, but balancing, IMHO, costs and benefits. If the cost is a reduction of crop output, well, it's too high, i deem

    If you click through the link they developed tumors because they were in contact with and probably regularly ingested Roundup weed killer. It's a French study by a "scientist" who is anti-GMO.

     

    I don't know why this is news. I could have predicted eating Roundup is likely to have negative effects.
