El Salvador (República de El Salvador) is a country in Central America. It is full of mestizos with extremely high reproductive rates starting from very young ages! More than a third of pregnancies are of girls 10-19. Many cases this is from incest.[7]

Opposition to GM food

In July 2014, the US government pulled its foreign aid to El Salvador for rejecting Monsanto's GMO seeds. Monsanto's seeds both produce deadly crops and make farmers financially enslaved to Monsanto's patented seeds.[8][9]

Since that time, El Salvador's natural farming has been outperforming Monsanto's GM food.[10]

Old history and background

After the Spanish conquest, the land was baptized by Spanish conquistadors as "Provincia De Nuestro Señor Jesucristo El Salvador Del Mundo" ("Province of Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Savior Of The World"), now abbreviated as "Republica de El Salvador". The country borders the Pacific Ocean between Guatemala and Honduras. With a population of approximately more than 6 million people, the small nation is undergoing rapid industrialization.
