A friend of mine who works at a food industry lobby says Monsanto is
frequently referred to as "Monsatan" by anti-biotech activists.

>(...)  In Europe, however, consumers have reacted negatively to genetically
engineered foods.  Buoyed by the media storm in Europe, activists in the
United States have stepped up their assault on biotechnology in recent

the industry.  One Internet Web site, for instance, has even taken to
calling the company (col. 4--ed.) "Mutanto."
