Frightening food for thought


But did you know the 100-year-old company is a major player in the GMO revolution? Under the plausible guise of eradicating world hunger with genetically modified seeds resistant to Round-Up, a best-selling herbicide it also developed, Monsanto has launched an insidious campaign to achieve worldwide market supremacy, regardless of the social cost to small farmers and rural economies.

It's all laid out in previously classified documents, and confirmed by scientists, politicians and victims. What the evidence suggests is that Monsanto has long waged a dirty war of pressure campaigns, corruption, collusion with government and prevarication, also known as big fat lies.

We know where Robin stands on Monsanto. We also know she tried early and often to get the company to talk for her documentary. It refused, on the grounds it would not come off looking good. It doesn't.

As far back as 1937, a study showed the "systemic toxic effects" of PCBs. Its production continued for decades, with shattering results still felt today.

Repositioning itself as an agricultural company, Monsanto developed Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) to increase milk production in dairy cows. Despite flawed science and obvious health risks, the company rushed the product to market, using such subtle measures as attempting to bribe Canadian government officials.

It failed, and the drug never crossed the border. But it was accepted in the States, where deregulations initiated during the Reagan years have put the company into bed with successive governments committed to leading the biotech revolution. Yes, that's Bush senior checking out the mutant Monsanto seeds when he was Ronald Reagan's VP.

As someone says, "biotech is so important, we can't let problems get in the way." Which explains the current GMO saturation of global markets and the stealth penetration of those seeds through "transgenics" into native seed stock.

It's not scary. It's terrifying. Like a Kurt Vonnegut Ice Nine effect, Monsanto's GMO market penetration looks to turn the world to mono-culture and potential environmental catastrophe. Rather than feed the planet, says Robin in this essential wake-up call, Monsanto is well on the road to ruining it.

7565 As noted before, all INDIVIDUALS who knowingly work for Monsanto - CEOs, chemists, janitors, accountants, marketers, secretaries, everyone, including stockholders - are guilty of MURDER. They knowingly poison people. They will be held accountable. The so-called justice system of this non-elected corporatist-fascist regime had better do it. If not, then someone else inevitably will. Sowing / reaping. Cause / effect. Payback is harsh.

Oh, f**k off. How many of you know about ALL the brands you buy? You stupid f***s. Monsanto owned the Quorn brand of veggie food here in Britain for years and when I confronted the Vegetarian Society about it, they expelled me. They were sucking up to one of the biggest vivisectionists in the world and courting innocent 14 year old girls at the same time. It made me sick.

Eat only what you grow or what has been grown locally. Bake your own bread. Don't drive a car.

Then I MIGHT respect you.

7565 phaedra: point well taken; these bastards hide their toxins under many different brand names, and the FDA in the USA actively PREVENTS correct safety labeling of foods. Nonetheless, we can avoid buying the toxins that we do know about.

Interestingly, none of the rice marketers (Riceland, Mahatma, etc.) that I've written to have favored me with a reply as to whether they use Monsanto's filth.

Personally, I've been walking, biking, and using public transport for over 10 years now. It's a bitch sometimes, but it gives me the moral right to one-finger salute any insurance companies or filling stations that I pass.
