Monsanto Funded Anti-GMO Labeling Campaign Gets Away with Impersonating Govt. Agencies


Misuse of a United States government seal can lead to a $250,000 fine, twenty years in prison, and three years of supervised release — unless you’re a campaign organization funded by major corporations like Monsanto. In a move completely ignored by the mainstream media (many of which have financial ties to such corporations), the anti-GMO labeling No on 37 Committee paid for and disseminated a physical piece of direct mail that not only entirely misused the FDA logo but even sported a fabricated quote.

Monsanto now overriding natural law by attempting to patent multiple common vegetables, fruits


Global biotechnology megalith Monsanto is no longer content with simply manipulating and patenting its own genetically-modified (GM) counterfeits of nature. According to a new petition created by the human rights advocacy group Avaaz, Monsanto is right now attempting to exploit little-known loopholes in European law for the ultimate purpose of patenting common fruits and vegetables that exist naturally in nature - and the president of the European Patent Office (PAO) has apparently given his blessing to this malicious endeavor.

Glyphosate toxicity to humans: An overview


Monsanto's infamous Roundup contains the hotly debated compound called glyphosate. This merciless herbicide is also found in 750 or more U.S. products. An herbicide like this infiltrates the landscape and accumulates in mammals, especially bone, hindering cellular detoxification along the way.

Millions against Monsanto: On the Road to Victory


After enjoying a year of maximum profits, record stock prices, the defeat of a major GMO (genetically modified organism) labeling campaign in California, pro-industry court decisions, and a formidable display of political power in Washington, D.C. - including slipping the controversial Monsanto Protection Act (http://www.organicconsumers.org) into the Federal Appropriations bill in March - the Biotech Bully from St. Louis now finds itself on the defensive.

Monsanto and Big Ag are monopolizing our seeds with their patents - Take action now before it's too late!


The European system of agriculture is currently undergoing some fundamental changes with regards to how plant seeds are produced, marketed, and sold across Europe. But unfortunately these changes are being guided in large part by the chemical industry, whose aggressive tactics of consolidating and patenting seeds in order to control the food supply have led to its monopolistic dominance of the seed market, which is becoming increasingly less diverse and more industrialized.

If George Zimmerman were Monsanto, would any black leaders seek justice for Trayvon?


If George Zimmerman were Monsanto, would any black leaders seek justice for Trayvon? The answer is no. The African-American community is up in arms over a jury of six women finding George Zimmerman not guilty of the second degree murder of Trayvon Martin. That same community is SILENT on the routine killing of young black babies by GMOs, vaccines and even the cancer-causing chemicals found in processed meat.

The secret's out: Monsanto is Big Ag's top spender on lobbying, spending nearly $8.7 million annually on seed patents


There is a reason why America's primary system of agriculture today centers around the cultivation of unsustainable genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) grown in a monoculture format and heavily sprayed with toxic pesticide chemicals. As revealed by the government transparency group OpenSecrets.org, this corporate system of industrial agriculture is dominated by Monsanto and other biotechnology interests, which collectively divests tens of millions of lobbying dollars every year to the federal government to ensure that GMOs are given agricultural preference.

Research - Roundup toxicity much worse than what Monsanto, government claims


Glyphosate, one the world's top-selling herbicide formulas, is also one of the most toxic, according to a recent study published in the open-access journal Ecotoxicology. Contrary to the unfounded safety claims made by Monsanto and its bedfellows in government, glyphosate's toxicity is much more prolific throughout the environment than previously thought, even at levels far below what is generally considered by federal regulators to be "safe."

Summertime reminder: Beware of Monsanto's GM sweet corn with built-in pesticides


Summer is well underway in the Northern Hemisphere, which for many Americans means lots of time spent swimming, picnicking, going to festivals and street fairs, and visiting amusement parks - not to mention all the junk food consumption that typically goes along with these activities. But one popular summertime food that you may want to avoid this year is sweet corn, as it may be a product of biotechnology bigwig Monsanto.
