Does Monsanto crops or products contain the Epicyte gene or any other gene that acts in the same way to create antibodies that kill or block sperm?

A:Expert Answer

No, none of our products have ever contained genes encoding for anti-sperm antibodies.  To answer your specific question about Epicyte: we did not have any agreements with Epicyte or Biolex Therapeutics (the company that acquired Epicyte in 2004) to conduct joint research or develop products.  Claims that Monsanto was involved in the research or development of food crops containing antibodies that kill or block sperm are incorrect.

this full length documentary, Seeds of Death, exposes what is behind much of the rhetoric, propaganda and misinformation that will be posted on this site. There is a segment that addresses the Epicyte gene as well http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUd9rRSLY4A

Why don't you sue organizations that make these claims, then?
