Unfortunately not enough talk about Monsanto and GMOs. There's no mainstream coverage on the corporation and the chemicals they put in our food.
Before I go any further, let me just give you a little information about Monsanto.
The Monsanto Company is a publicly traded American multinational agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation. Those words should not be in the same sentence... Chemicals and agriculture, aka Agrochemical, does not sound healthy to me.
Monsanto is a leading producer of genetically engineered seed and the herbicide glyphosate, which it markets under the Roundup brand.
Founded in 1901 by John Francis Queeny, Monsanto initially produced food additives like saccharin and vanillin, expanded into industrial chemicals like sulfuric acid and PCBs in the 1920s, and by the 1940s was a major producer of plastics, including polystyrene and synthetic fibers.
All of the "additives" and materials we constantly hear is bad for the environment...
Notable achievements by Monsanto and its scientists as a chemical company included breakthrough research on catalytic asymmetric hydrogenation and being the first company to mass-produce light emitting diodes (LEDs). OK, that's a good one...
The company also formerly manufactured controversial products such as the insecticide DDT, PCBs, Agent Orange, and recombinant bovine somatotropin (a.k.a. bovine growth hormone).
Monsanto was among the first to genetically modify a plant cell, as one of four groups announcing the introduction of genes into plants in 1983, and was among the first to conduct field trials of genetically modified crops, which it did in 1987.
It remained one of the top 10 U.S. chemical companies until it quietly expanded most of its chemical businesses between 1997 and 2002, through a process of mergers and spin-offs that focused the company on biotechnology.
They are the founding fathers and THE biotechnology industry. Now they want to control 100 percent of the world's food supply.
This is one shady corporation.
It's hard for me to trust a company that lied about every single thing it manufactured. Except for that LED thing. I don't know where that idea came from. I guess they needed a little distraction to hide the amount of cancer they produce.
Now former vice president of the corporation, Michael R. Taylor is the Deputy Commissioner for Foods at the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
I imagine the guy's a straight shooter and won't feel compelled to let Monsanto distribute all kinds of poisons to us.
Monsanto has the system on complete lock down and sooner than later they will control the food supply.
Politicians won't even attempt to fight them. The ones that do end up looking bad for something entierly different.
The media never mentions the company and even the government keeps them in business by allowing them to exist and get away with lying to the public.
Why is labeling a product so dangerous? Since when did the FDA start allowing any company to sell products without some kind of ingredient or warning label? The FDA is even leaving the testing to Monsanto itself. Then approving products from what ever information they give them.
Something just doesn't add up here. I might not be a math wiz, but this is 1 + 1 here. A blind man can see that there's a serious conspiracy happening here and the public is either to busy to care or to defeated to try and stop it.
Who has the time? But, if we never take time, how could we ever have time?
It doesn't take much to look at ingredients or research products online. Most people spend more time looking down at an electronic device, but say they're to busy to do anything about what they constantly complain about.
We can't be to busy on this one guys. If this company controls the food supply, there won't be any independent farmers. You won't even be able to grow your own vegetables.
They are so powerful and so vindictive that most won't step up to them.
Writing this blog, I've been told, is not the smartest thing. Allegedly people have been put on the terror watch list just for questioning aspartame, let alone GMO.
On the bright side, I guess the list is one form of fame...
I'm no hero and I'm not so brave, but if we don't, as individuals, stand up and at least ask for labels on our foods then they have already won. They already have a lead, but America is a come from behind style country.
We are the underdogs in this fight, but the little guy has his advantages and positioning is everything. Stand up and start the fight by demanding the truth about Monsanto and GMOs.
They are the true terrorists that threaten our health, prosperity and liberty...
This is part 1 of a multi-part series. I will expose Monsanto for they are, an evil empire.
I will list products, ingredients, websites, information centers, independent farmers and whatever else I can do to, at the very least, slow them down.
Thanks for reading faithful. Together we can make the future fit for our kids.
