Monsanto Lawsuit Continues as Glyphosate Contamination Spreads — The Truth About Cancer – March 1, 2019

monsanto trial breaking news

By Ty Bollinger – March 1, 2019

About 6 months ago, we reported on a landmark ruling against Monsanto in a case claiming that their pesticides cause cancer. Bayer AG, who acquired Monsanto in June of 2018, is now facing lawsuits from over 11,000 plaintiffs, all of whom are claiming that the products Roundup and Ranger Pro are harmful to our health.

The focus of these claims is glyphosate, the primary ingredient in both products. Lawyers representing these plaintiffs have claimed that the pesticides cause cancer and attack healthy gut bacteria. According to Reuters, they’ve also made allegations that the company attempted to influence regulators and manipulate public opinion regarding the safety of their products.

Today, we’re going to look at the dangers of glyphosate, the current legal battles faced by Bayer, and the extent to which these pesticides have permeated our food and water supplies.

Monsanto’s $125 Million Deal to Flood The Market With “Longer Lasting” New GMO Foods – April 2, 2018

Monsanto’s $125 Million Deal to Flood The Market With “Longer Lasting” New GMO Foods

 

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.

Monsanto Has Lost $11 Million As Indian Cotton Farmers Begin To Use Indigenous Seed – March 11, 2017

By Jessica Murray at trueactivist.com The corrupt company has been linked to the deaths of 300,000 farmers. After illegally pushing a form of Bt cotton into India and Africa over 10 years ago, agrochemical company Monsanto is now losing millions of dollars due to farmers now planting their own indigenous seed. In the past, Monsanto has been accused of writing…
