The Evils of Monsanto

Monsanto, the world leader in genetically modified (GM) crops and seeds, has been named the worst company of 2011 by Natural Society — for “threatening both human health and the environment.”

I couldn’t agree more. I have long designated Monsanto the most dangerous corporation on the planet, and clearly this is a growing sentiment.

According to Forbes:

“Monsanto is so despised by environmentalists that Google’s first suggested search term for the St. Louis company is ‘Monsanto evil.’

Readers… voted Monsanto the world’s most evil corporation in a January poll, giving the corporation a whopping 51 percent of the vote.”

What’s Wrong With Monsanto?

You may be wondering what Monsanto — the world’s largest seed company whose net income for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 totaled $126 million (up from $9 million in 2011) — has done to have earned such ire.

The list is long, easily enough for a novel, but to sum it up, biotech giant Monsanto has created some of the most dangerous products on the planet, including Agent Orange, dioxin, recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH)… and genetically modified seeds.

I don't agree

In Africa Monsanto was giving away free seeds to farmers.
When their crops failed and entire countries got mirred in starvation Monsanto did not pay them a single cent for their crop loses.
Examples like this one are thousands.
Btw Dr. Mercola who wrote the above article is a huge supporter of Dr. Paul.

Yet, you eat and drink Monsanto products everyday

I was in the health food store the other day... there's Monsanto products.

Beer is a BIG Monsanto based product, so think of that when you decide to have a beer.

This, among other things, is why I don't eat any of it

Most of what lines the shelves in the supermarket is literally poison.

Poison. Not a metaphor.

Literal poison.

I make the choice not to eat anything made with corn, soy, sugar beets, GMO tomatoes, toxic gluten filled grains, hormone injected industrial creatures, or any colorfully packaged sugar and chemical lab designed processed treats.

Its not hard.

You just buy the right ingredients and make it yourself.

Poisoning yourself is a choice

Can you...

send me your shopping list, menu, and recipes!

Well .. its pretty simple. Search on 'Paleo Diet'

Type in the string 'paleo diet' on your search engine of choice and a ton of stuff will come up. Read up on it for a bit and the light bulbs will start going off for you.

Funny thing: I learned about it from reading LewRockwell.com of all places.

It seems to be associated with the liberty movement, because a lot of liberty bloggers swear by it.

I had been thinking about going on it - then I developed symptoms of bowel disease last fall. Before I was even diagnosed (ulcerative colitis it turns out) I picked up the diet, eliminated all of the stuff that is hazardous ... and my symptoms started coming under control.

Recommended it to a friend - not for IBD, but for overall health and weight issues - and she lost 17 pounds of fat in one month, skin cleared up, eyes cleared up, energy went through the roof.

Highly recommended and best advice I could give anyone (other than voting Ron Paul)

Thanks!

Monsanto fights labeling tooth and nail.....why?

Doesn't sound too consumer friendly to me.

Thanx,

Jason

You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.

Government regulations

Regulations grow a government instead of business.

Who says labeling is government regulation....not me

Labeling is consumer driven. Free market you know. Label your food and maybe I'll buy it. Don't label it....you must be Monsanto.

Thanx,

Jason

You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.

I sa labeling is government regulation

It is never consumer driven. I'm not saying that useful idiots are not demanding labels. But it's the government who applies them, through regulations. Organic is REGULATED by the government, consumers may think they are benefitting, but as I said, Monsanto seeds are grown organically.

We are force feed GMO's

We have no choice in eating GMO's the government will punish any company that says GMO free on the label.

Monsanto has infiltrated the EPA and FDA, a real nice cosy fascist relationship they have going on. There is a revolving door from Monsanto board of directors to the EPA, and FDA

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

The Monsanto/EPA/FDA merry-go-round.

Talk about fascism. Sheeeesh!

Thanx,

Jason

Force Fed. Fed. Fed. Fed. End the Fed.

Feed the world healthy food.

End the Fed! Ron Paul for president, 2012.

I drink mostly German beer Holsten

Granger you and me we are big fans of Ralph Nader.
You should read some of his writings etc on Monsanto it would open your eyes.

I promise you,

I eat NOTHING Monsanto has been involved with. Yes, I make absolute sure of it.

MonSATAN is the devil incarnate

Suit-cases full of cash is their tactic to get the seeds into foreign nations, bribing agricultural officials.

Russian studies showed that in MonSATAN fed Guinea pigs (soy) by the third generation the animals go sterile.

You'll get sick if you eat ANYTHING from MonSATAN. (Soy, Corn, Canola, Beet Sugar, Cottonseed)

ill say this too

I highly suspect the GM manipulation of Monsanto being behind my newly discovered gluten intolerance. I've been eating bread and wheat products all my life with no issue, but suddenly last year, I started having sharp pains in my gut. After about 20 thousand dollars of medical procedures to find out what was causing this, I decided to try to stop eating bread. Next day, no pain.

I cant drink beer, eat bread, or eat pasta. It is a huge problem for me. I feel as though I deserve an explanation. Monsanto is evil.

The reason I suspect Monsanto for this garbage, is that when I traveled outside of the country a month ago, I ate plenty of bread and wheat products with no pain. There is a difference between wheat in the US and abroad.

Yes, you are correct: GMOs cause great intestinal damage

and the gut is the first site of their toxicity. In GMO-fed animals the intestines are severely damaged, to such a degree that they even develop pockets or micro-holes.

Itis the GMO-tainted matter in those foods that are likely doing you in.

Study all foods for ingredients. Reject all GMOs and you'll likely recover.

Wheat is not yet engineered. It is the additives, the corn syrup, corn starch, beet sugar, cottonseed oil, soy oil, soy protein, textured veg. protein, aspartame: it is also the eggs, meat, poultry raised on GMO grain.

Wheat is now a GMO food

just 2 years ago they developed GMO wheat, so yes it could very well be your problem.

Also your not allowed to know if your eating GMO's

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

Agreed

I avoid eating bread.
Unless I'm in Europe for example Italy.
I don't even call bread in America and Canada as bread -- it is a toxic mixture meant to make profit for the makers while shortening our life span.

We make our own

Bread. I don't eat out because of Monsanto! I make everything myself and freeze it for later use.

you have a cow?

I don't know anyone that is 100% self sustainable. Most grains, like 99% are Monsanto, which means feed is Monsanto.

I buy my milk from

a farm that raises grass fed jersey cows. All their grass is grown organically. they give a handful of organic grain at milking time only. You can avoid gmo's, we are proof. My daughter is 14 and doesn't know what fast food tastes like, but it nauseates her to even smell it. If everyone stood up to this food czar, we could win this fight. Gmo's need to be labeled as such. I only purchase items that say no gmo's.

Monsanto seeds are grown ORGANIC

Name the products you buy.

Thats an oxymoron

Monsanto seeds are part herbicide (seeds themselves are classified as such) so that they can flood the growing plants with herbicide to kill the weeds. So right there, you can see they are not organic. But, to answer your question, I only buy products labeled Non-Gmo. I make everything from scratch, we don't eat out, we avoid Gmo's like the plagued because we don't want our daughter to be a human experiment (lab rat) like the rest of America. It is our way of life and we LOVE not being part of this gigantic test/experiment they are doing with the lives of unknowing American people across the country.

My cows and chickens are fed organic for less than grain-fed

I buy organic grain and sprout it for the chickens, grow it out for a week for my cows into fodder feed. By next year, we will be able to start growing our grain, some of it in our aquaponics system.
4 pounds of grain gives me 4 pounds of chicken sprouts and 12-14 pounds of fodder feed.
Monsanto can be nullified.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Awesome

Thanks Fishy.

You are a great example of a 'food freedom' activist.
Love your line:
Monsanto can be nullified.
