Monsanto and Glyphosate - Steve - 03-15-2018
Monsanto says its pesticides are safe. Now, a court wants to see the proof -
Monsanto and Big Biotech control of government agencies has allowed the introduction of genetically-modified crops and food without the need to prove their safety (they can’t because they’re cumulatively lethal). Big Biotech has had it a bit tougher in Europe with GMO because of public protests, but they are working to open the door there, too, or rather the floodgates.
European Union bureaucrats are definitely in the Monsanto camp and they will be waiting for their opportunity to drop the current limits on GMO activity.
The former British Environment Secretary Owen Paterson campaigns for GMO crops to be grown in the UK using provable lies and misrepresentation.
The European Food Safety (Control) Authority has already produced ‘guidance’ on assessing the environmental risks of GMO which is paving the way for Monsanto to move in on Europe with its Frankenstein food.
WikiLeaks released American diplomatic cables revealing how the US Government, a Monsanto subsidiary, was seeking ways to retaliate against Europe for refusing to use GMO seeds. This included launching trade wars against countries that would not comply with Monsanto’s demands. Cables from 2007 reveal that Craig Stapleton, the US ambassador to France and a business partner of then US President George Bush, wrote under his cover-name ‘Country team Paris’ to outline plans to pressure Europe to accept Monsanto GMO.
Other US State Department cables expose US diplomats as working directly for Monsanto and Big Biotech. One said: ‘In response to recent urgent requests by [Spanish rural affairs ministry] state secretary Josep Puxeu and Monsanto, post requests renewed US government support of Spain’s science-based agricultural biotechnology position through high-level US government intervention.’
The cables show how the US and Spain have worked together to block the strengthening of biotech laws within the EU. A cable from the US Embassy in Madrid said: ‘If Spain falls, the rest of Europe will follow.’ Other cables revealed how American diplomats requested funding to send lobbyists for the biotech industry to meet politicians and agricultural officials in ‘target countries’. These included countries in Africa, Latin America and Europe.
In a cable sent from the US Slovakian consulate in 2005, the State Department is told that the local post ‘will continue its efforts to dispel myths about GMOs and advocate on behalf of Monsanto’. But even this scale of bias and corruption is not enough for Monsanto, which has been called the most evil corporation in the world.
Monsanto sought to make additions to the 2012 Farm Bill and the 2013 Agriculture Appropriations Bill to prevent the government from stopping GMO or enforcing checks on its safety. Mike Adams, who does a great job exposing the food and health conspiracy at Naturalnews.com, said: ‘America’s agricultural future could literally end up being controlled entirely by the biotech industry, which will have full immunity from the law.’
Clearly Monsanto, Big Biotech, Big Government and Big Media have no interest in telling the public the truth about GMO and the consequences for every man, woman, child, animal, insect and plant on the planet when they know that the truth is horrific. The 2011 Global Citizens’ report, The GMO Emperor Has No Clothes, revealed the following:
Contrary to the claim of feeding the world, genetic engineering has not increased the yield of a single crop.
Herbicide tolerant (Roundup Ready) crops were supposed to control weeds while crops with the biological herbicide Bacillus thuringiensis (or Bt) were intended to control pests ... but GMO crops have led to the emergence of superweeds and super pests ... herbicide resistant crops such as Roundup Ready cotton can create the risk of herbicide resistant ‘superweeds’ by transferring the herbicide resistance to the weeds.
Despite claims that genetically modified organisms will lower the levels of chemicals (pesticides and herbicides) used, quite the opposite has occurred, with 1.6 billion pounds of glyphosate (the active in ingredient in Roundup) being applied to American soil in 2007 alone. This is of great concern both because of the negative impacts of these chemicals on ecosystems and humans, and because there is the danger that increased chemical use will cause pests and weeds to develop resistance, requiring even more chemicals in order to manage them.
Monsanto has been claiming that through genetic engineering it can breed crops for drought tolerance and other climate-resilient traits. This is a false promise.
Among the false claims made by Monsanto and the Biotechnology industry is that GMO foods are safe. However, there are enough independent studies to show that GMO foods can cause severe health damage.

One attribute alone is bad enough, but add a few together and the results can be realized much better, this is not yet happening.

well, i don't believe they don't know what the effects will be. they have some general idea, at least. otherwise, why bother?

A California Appellate Court sided with the State of California and Center for Food Safety (CFS) on Thursday, affirming that Monsanto’s glyphosate pesticide can be listed as a known carcinogen under Proposition 65.
