Monsanto Chemical Shown to Cause Infertility and Cancer Among Other Things. While the EPA and Government Wait and Watch.
After seeing this first part of this story I dug deeper into Monsanto Chemical, at first thinking of the previous posts I had done on herbicides and fertilizers owned by Israel Chemicals (ICL) .
Monsanto is an American Company that not only makes herbicides, fertilizers, medications and food additives. After all that I have read so far not only are they greedy, they are destroying mainly White Nations all under Governments watch(epa, fda, dept. of agriculture, etc) That is just my opinion on what I have read so far. shera~
Monsanto’s herbicidal chemical glyphosate could cause infertility or cancer. It may also be speeding the growth of super weeds and causing worrying changes to plants and soil.
The chemical, which has long been touted as a safe part of global food production, is now at a crossroads. Regulators in the United States and Canada are conducting a formal review of glyphosate’s safety, even as lawsuits are pending and some groups are calling for a global ban.
According to Reuters:
“Environmentalists, consumer groups and plant scientists from several countries are warning that heavy use of the chemical over the years is causing dangerous problems for plants, people and animals alike.”
Monsanto is also only an FDA approval away from its latest monstrosity — soybeans that have been genetically modified to produce omega-3 fats. That FDA approval is expected this year.
Monsanto plans to include GM soybean oil in every product it can — baked goods, baking mixes, breakfast cereals, cheeses, frozen dairy desserts, pasta, gravies and sauces, fruit juices, snack foods, candy, soups, and more.
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.”
Marie-Monique Robin, author of The World According To Monsanto, says that for all Monsanto’s talk about the ecological and humanitarian benefits of its chemicals and genetically modified organisms (GMOs), the solutions have never been delivered.
According to Robin’s extensive documentation, this is because what really matters to Monsanto is control of the world seed market. To that end, they have genetically engineered seeds that are resistant to, and therefore dependent on, Roundup, Monsanto’s herbicide, which nets them gigantic profits.More at Source
If you choose to avoid investing in Monsanto, you probably would like to avoid purchasing their products as well. After all, purchases of their products directly funds the destruction of people’s health around the world. Fortunately, there are alternatives to all of their harmful products.

Purchasers of Monsanto-Seeded Land Are Stuck with Monsanto’s Liabilities
Not only does Monsanto create evil products that endanger life, once a sale is made, it’s forever. Their standard contract with farmers, euphemistically named Monsanto Technology Stewardship Agreement (MTSA), denies the right to sue no matter what harm might result from their seeds. Worse, the contract enforces the same terms on subsequent owners of the land.
Monsanto shifts all liability for their products to the farmer, and they force future owners of Monsanto-seeded properties into the same sort of servitude. Their contract has nothing to do with stewardship—unless creating a dead world is the goal.
Monsanto now advertises an “advantage” of the contract, saying that it no longer requires resigning every year! Once you’ve signed it, your rights regarding any aspect of your farm have been signed away for life—and even beyond into perpetuity. Whoever takes over your farmland will be subjected to the same rules.

Most farmers are apparently unaware when they sign. After all, how many of us actually read contracts—or understand them if we do? How many are in print so small that most of us cannot read them? Monsanto’s contract print is far too small for normal human beings to see.More at Source
Monsanto files patent for new invention: the pig
Greenpeace researcher uncovers chilling patent plans

Geneva, Switzerland — It’s official. Monsanto Corporation is out to own the world’s food supply, the dangers of genetic engineering and reduced biodiversity notwithstanding, as they pig-headedly set about hog-tying farmers with their monopoly plans. We’ve discovered chilling new evidence of this in recent patents that seek to establish ownership rights over pigs and their offspring.
In the crop department, Monsanto is well on their way to dictating what consumers will eat, what farmers will grow, and how much Monsanto will get paid for seeds. In some cases those seeds are designed not to reproduce sowable offspring. In others, a flock of lawyers stand ready to swoop down on farmers who illegally, or evenunknowingly, end up with Monsanto’s private property growing in their fields.
One way or another, Monsanto wants to make sure no food is grown that they don’t own — and the record shows they don’t care if it’s safe for the environment or not. Monsanto has aggressively set out to bulldoze environmental concerns about its genetically engineered (GE) seeds at every regulatory level. So why stop in the field? Not content to own the pesticide and the herbicide and the crop, they’ve made a move on the barnyard by filing two patents which would make the corporate giant the sole owner of that famous Monsanto invention: the pig.
The Monsanto Pig (Patent pending)
“If these patents are granted, Monsanto can legally prevent breeders and farmers from breeding pigs whose characteristics are described in the patent claims, or force them to pay royalties,” says Then. “It’s a first step toward the same kind of corporate control of an animal line that Monsanto is aggressively pursuing with various grain and vegetable lines.”
There are more than 160 countries and territories mentioned where the patent is sought including Europe, the Russian Federation, Asia (India, China, Philippines) America (USA, Brazil, Mexico), Australia and New Zealand. WIPO itself can only receive applications, not grant patents. The applications are forwarded to regional patent offices.
The patents are based on simple procedures, but are incredibly broad in their claims. In one application (WO 2005/015989 to be precise) Monsanto is describing very general methods of crossbreeding and selection, using artificial insemination and other breeding methods which are already in use. The main “invention” is nothing more than a particular combination of these elements designed to speed up the breeding cycle for selected traits, in order to make the animals more commercially profitable.More at Source
