In the 1990s, Monsanto found an ingenious way to sell large quantities of its broad-spectrum toxic herbicide RoundUp to farmers. The company’s scientists gene-spliced corn, soy, cotton, and canola with foreign DNA, enabling these “Frankencrops” to survive massive doses of RoundUp. Farmers could now repeatedly spray their fields with RoundUp, killing weeds but not the crop. Unfortunately, the collateral damage of heavy RoundUp spraying includes groundwater pollution, toxic residues in crops, and destruction of essential soil microorganisms.
The Genetically Modified (GM) crops themselves create herbicide-resistant Superweeds and spread genetic pollution to organic and non-GMO crops as well as plant relatives. Last but certainly not least, Monsanto’s GM foods have been linked to serious health damage – not only for animals, but humans as well.
There is a direct correlation between our genetically engineered food supply and the $2 trillion the US spends annually on medical care, namely an epidemic of diet-related chronic diseases. Instead of healthy fruits, vegetables, grains, and grass-fed animal products, US factory farms and food processors produce a glut of genetically engineered junk foods that generate heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer.
A critical mass of consumers would turn away from GMOs and Factory Farmed meat, dairy, and eggs – if they knew what they were eating.

Why Monsanto, An Ex-Chemical Company, Now A BioTech Company, Is Evil
The reasoning involved in the nature of the evil of a chemical company like Monsanto is not rocket science. We only have to consider a few basic principles. Once they are accepted as true, the rest follows. The first principle is that life processes and systems are complex. They are the most complex systems known. This makes all developing life sciences, especially those involved with the dysfunction and repair of life processes, as much an art as a science. Those that would create a product must also be able to maintain and repair it, not only the product, but also any consequence of its use. So the practice of ’making’ or modifying of life must equate to the healing of life in its methods in order for it to be a moral enterprise. Those that would improve life must be able to heal it when things go awry. To confuse a practicing art with an applied science is to engage in fraud and quackery of the most unethical and dangerous sort.
Before the chemical companies like Monsanto became biotechnology companies they only dealt with chemicals that interacted with life processes. Repeatedly chemical companies like Monsanto produced new chemicals (thousands daily now) that they had no way of knowing what the full long term effects would be on living systems. They were released without sufficient study. I know this because the needed pre-release experiments would have involved the study of such long term high level multivariate interactions that it would have been impossible to do these experiments in principle (though some have theorized it was possible albeit too costly to perform such experiments in practice). In actual practice the environment itself was the testing ground, and the lawyers and the public relations propagandists delayed the inevitable lawsuits until a profit could be turned, a subsidiary company divested and the inevitable move to another product accomplished. This is the model set by Monsanto over its hundred year history. Just think asbestos, saccharin, PCBs, DDT, Agent Orange (dioxin), BGH,aspartame, fluoride, mercury, GMOs, monoculture, Nazis, nuclear waste & News Corporation when you consider Monsanto. You might add morgellons syndrome and mass beedeath to that list, but that seems premature without more evidence. Yet the evidence mounts, for the bees, for the morgellons, and for the cover-up. In some real sense this all appears to be a final Solutia scenario for mankind and an awesome business plan. [more]
