There’s a lot more to the Monsanto Company than meets the eye: aside from its line of toxic herbicides and genetically engineered seeds, they’ve also been involved in everything from the production of Agent Orange during the Vietnam War to cancer-causing PCBs.
While the company continually states that its purpose is to “feed the world” by creating GMOs and chemicals (an assertion the United Nations has repeatedly disagreed with), it is still heavily involved in our food supply from seed to harvest.
And now, thanks to a new partnership with a “cutting edge” startup out of California, Monsanto could soon be flooding the market with more GMOs (including one of the world’s favorite fruits) than ever before.
And as usual, absolutely nothing will be labeled, meaning it will be up to the consumer to figure out which foods are GMO and which aren’t on their own time.
Monsanto to Flood the Market with “Longer-Lasting” New GMOs
Monsanto’s new project will focus specifically on “longer-lasting” new GMO foods in an effort to combat food waste.
According to its press release, Monsanto is investing $125 million in gene editing technology through a new partnership with Pairwise Plants, a California agricultural startup that will help Monsanto to create gene edited corn, soybeans, cotton and canola crops.
This new technology is said to be the next big thing in the GMO industry.
It allows scientists to play God with our food supply by altering foods even quicker in a laboratory setting, bestowing upon them new traits like the inability to show signs of rotting or wasting.
Among new varieties of GMO crops, Pairwise is also expected to work with Monsanto on a new GMO wheat, as well as GMO fruits including the potential to create GMO strawberries.
“My co-founders and I believe the technologies we have each been developing can have a profound impact in plant agriculture and will speed innovation that is badly needed to feed a growing population amid challenging conditions created by a changing climate,” said Pairwise founder J. Keith Joung about the new arrangement.
What This Means for the Future of Monsanto
With the recent European approval of its merger with Bayer set, Monsanto is now upping the ante like never before.
It’s becoming more clear than ever that their vision for the Future of Food is exactly what we thought it was — one filled with Frankenfood experiments, crops doused in cancer-linked chemicals and an increasingly dominant level of control over the food system.
The alleged goal of this new pairing is to create foods that will “last longer” on store shelves, but what good is longer-lasting food if the health consequences are unknown due to a lack of long-term testing, and the creation of new foods that are inherently foreign to the body?
Already one Columbia University study has shown that this type of gene editing can create “hundreds of unintended mutations” within the target organism. It’s not known whether this extends to gene edited foods, but now the question is, “Do you want to be the guinea pig?”
Monsanto is hoping that the answer to that question is a resounding “Yes,” as it has been for so much of the unsuspecting general public over these past few decades.

The Vietnam Association of Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin (VAVA) recently told Reuters that more than 4.8 million people in Vietnam have been exposed to the herbicide and over 3 million of them have been suffering from deadly diseases. Agent Orange was one of many herbicides used by the U.S. military as a weapon during the Vietnam…Read more & photos
Monsanto, are a multinational corporation that was once known for manufacturing Agent Orange for use as a chemical weapon in the Vietnam War. In September 2016, the German chemical company Bayer merged with Monsanto and became one of the world’s biggest agricultural conglomerates.
Monsanto are notoriously known for their super-corporation approach to nutrition. The company and its genetically modified organism (GMO) seeds have been the subject of global protests around the world. They have reaped huge profits from selling its popular weedkiller, glyphosate (known as “RoundUp”) in tandem with crops genetically engineered to withstand glyphosate (“RoundUp Ready”) crop. Last year, RoundUp brought in around £3.5bn.
The weedkiller has been linked to increased cancer rates, autism, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. As a result, Monsanto are currently locked in battle over relicensing the brand RoundUp in the European Union. The final decision on its authorisation is expected in November. The decision to continue or discontinue the brand will be informed by the European food safety authority (Efsa). It was recently revealed that Efsa based a recommendation that glyphosate was safe for public use on a EU report that copied and pasted analyses from a Monsanto study……
As the world discusses the end of ISIS, the third world war, the North Korea threat, and the US imperial foreign policy, it quietly forgets the Vietnam War during which the United States used Agent Orange (a toxic mixture of two herbicides that contained large amounts of dioxin) to wipe out Vietnamese forest cover in…Read more & photos
