Read article in the Daily Mail (UK)

Comment: Just like the mother of Dominic Feld before her, by opposing orthodox cancer treatments for her young son, Sally Roberts is fighting an antiquated medical system. Rather than allowing children to be treated safely and effectively using non-patentable natural therapies that can block all key mechanisms that make cancer a deadly disease, the strategic goal of the Pharma Cartel is to ban such treatments and all information about them. To help terminate the cancer epidemic for this generation and for all future generations, please support our international initiative for a ‘Cancer Free World’.

Monsanto.  The case involves Monsanto’s prosecution of 75-year-old Indiana farmer Vernon Hugh Bowman for alleged patent infringement because he saved and replanted his soybean seeds rather than purchasing new seeds for planting.  Today’s filing lays out a legal framework for why the Supreme Court should safeguard seeds as a public good, confirming the right of Bowman and all farmers to save seeds.
