Don't trust Monsanto

Updated on December 12, 2009

Never trust Monsanto

Did you know that Monsanto have not only buy every seed in the world so that they could genetically engineered to make it infertile. But they have owned the patent for the generic makeup for the plant that they developed. For example, if the seed that monsanto own land on your land, they have the right to that plant and the worst part is that there is nothing you can do about.

Monsanto claimed that their product does no harm and yet it have proven that their product have toxin in it which pollute the water supplies as well as the soil and the food supply. They are the one who produced Round-up, DDT, which stand for dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane  which is a pestice that now banned in the United States of America because that chemical have some effects on wildlife, eggshell thinning and human health, and agent orange during the VIetnam War.

If I was you, you should avoid GMO food like the plague. Don’t buy any product made with GMO food or any product made by a company that uses any GMO food. Demand that GMO food be labeled so that consumers have a clear choice.

The FDA know about Monsanto but they are hypocrite who fails to warn the public of the known immunosuppressive effects of commonly used drugs such as antacids and statins – drugs that have been shown to increase the risk for infection and yet at the same time, has branded all nutrition as fraud.

Monsanto’s dominance draws antitrust inquiry

According to the washington post, Farmers and seed companies "are afraid to speak in public because they worried that they will become victims of retaliation," Thomas L. Sager, DuPont senior vice president and general counsel, said in a statement. "That's why it's so important that antitrust investigators move quickly -- to learn the truth before even more harm is done to America's farmers."

Monsanto Timeline

As of February 2005, Monsanto has patent claims on breeding techniques for pigs, which would grant them ownership of any pigs born of such techniques and their related herds. Greenpeace claims Monsanto is trying to claim ownership on ordinary breeding techniques. Monsanto claims that the patent is a defensive measure to track animals from its system. They furthermore claim their patented method uses a specialized insemination device that requires less sperm than is typical

In 2006, the Public Patent Foundation filed requests with the United States Patent and Trademark Office to revoke four patents that Monsanto has used in patent lawsuits against farmers. In the first round of reexamination, claims in all four patents were rejected by the Patent Office in four separate rulings dating from February through July 2007. Monsanto has since filed responses in the reexaminations.

In October 2008, the company's Canadian division, Monsanto Canada Inc., was named one of Canada's Top 100 Employers by Mediacorp Canada Inc., and was featured in Maclean's newsmagazine. Later that month, Monsanto Canada Inc. was also named one of Manitoba's Top Employers, which was announced by the Winnipeg Free Press newspaper.
