In what Democracy Now!1 refers to as an “explosive report” by The Guardian,2 documents obtained during the discovery process of lawsuits against Monsanto reveal the company has been engaged in a coordinated campaign to discredit critics of the company.
Among them are journalist Carey Gillam, the nonprofit U.S. Right to Know (USRTK) and singer-songwriter Neil Young, whose 2015 album, “The Monsanto Years,” was an artistic critique of the company.

We are starting to awaken to the fact that it seems to be the rule, and not the exception, that large Western corporations put profits above human health considerations. The only time they seem to give any regard to human health concerns is when their forecasts of potential lawsuits down the road would likely exceed the cost measures needed to ensure the safety of their product.

Last week Activist Post reported that Monsanto had kept dossiers on influential people throughout France and other European countries. This week, it was revealed that the German chemical and pharmaceuticals giant Bayer disclosed that Monsanto, the controversial U.S. pesticide producer behind genetically modified organisms (GMOs) involved in more than 13,000 plaintiffs lawsuits alleging illness had kept “watch lists” of its opponents including journalists in key EU member states and in EU institutions.

According to a report on Bloomberg.com, this marks the largest jury award in the U.S. this year, and the eigth-largest ever in a product-defect claim.

(NaturalHealth365) A shocking six out of ten American adults (more than half of the population) currently suffer from some form of chronic disease – including such potentially life-threatening illnesses as heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Many experts note that the prevalence of chronic disease has increased steadily – over the last 30 years – due to the widespread consumption of GMO foods and use of wireless technology.
Make no mistake about it: we are experiencing a national epidemic of chronic disease – throughout the Western world. Of course, agrochemical producers and the wireless industry refuse to accept any responsibility. But, it’s hard to ignore the scientific evidence.
For example, an award-winning researcher recently published a review confirming the damaging effects of WiFi. And, as you’ll soon see in this article, the dangerous link between WiFi and GMOs is undeniable.
