The gene giant coming down

Profits for gene-chemical giant Monsanto are down and have been attributed to cheaper herbicides flooding in from China (see the article in the St Louis Dispatch).
I think this is incorrect. A global resurgence for healthy food, research pushing past the censors to prove the toxicity of the chemical cocktail round-up and a repudiation of big corporate gene engineering: these are probably more critical causes of the beginning of the fall.
