For many years this company was so powerful that many were afraid to say the name out loud. They are responsible for poisons such as saccharin, aspartame and PCB’s They spread dioxin, Agent Orange, “Roundup” (glyphosate) and rBGH. They have the highest number of GMO’s.
The genes of diseased pigs, cows, spiders, monkeys, fish, vaccines and viruses are used are used to genetically modify Monsanto GMO crops. Today over 80% of food on the market is their GMO variety.
One of the dark secrets of GMO’s is not only do they self-polinate, the chemical cocktail that makes this species also poisons the bees and birds that go about their business.
In their own employee’s canteen, Monsanto does not allow GMO’s (aka “GE”, genetically engineered) to be served. (Source)
They spent billions globally buying up as many seed companies as possible and transitioning them into “terminator” seed companies. Monsanto has been repeatedly sued for $100s of millions for causing illness, infant deformities and death.
They also had signed into law the Monsanto Protection Act, which allows them to engineer experimental crops with no regulation. If those crops were responsible for massive death, there is no governmental power that can stop them. Source: Source Section 735. See Snopes for an explanation of the text.
A more detailed account of their history can be found here.
Bayer (the aspirin company) recently (2019) bought Monsanto for $63 billion. Monsanto currently has about 13,000 pending lawsuits alleging their glyphosate (“Roundup”) causes cancer. At that price, why would investors be concerned about a mere $25 million in lawsuits? Source
If you have stock in either of those companies, looks like it’s going to be riding some waves for a while.
In the meantime, riding up along side of the monster are at least 2 different groups who are raising their heads and providing alternative, natural and non cancer-causing solutions.
