Fish has long been touted as a super food from doctors, nutritionists and specialists from around the world. Many people choose not to eat meat or other animal products, but show pride in their presumed health conscious decision to consume fish. But, as with almost everything else that is promoted heavily in the media, there’s…Read more & video documentary(error?)
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.

Oh happy day! Two entities that are clearly a near perfect match, are to be joined together in hellish matrimony.
On the 21st March, 2018, after due consideration, The EU Monopolies and Murders Commission sanctioned their marriage – for the princely sum of just $666 billion dollars. What a joyous day for the people, plants and animals of planet Earth!
The wedding, between these two infamous same-sex corporates, is to be celebrated with a laboratory prepared Roundup Ready cocktail, which invited guests will be able to savor from specially commissioned asbestos goblets, each bearing the Saturnian insignia of the corporate couple.

Documents that have come to light recently show that Monsanto continued to make and sell polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) for eight years after they knew that they were hazardous to the environment and human health. The firm was already exposed for this practice when internal documents were digitized and posted as part of the Poison Papers….Read more

Having lived in a variety of cultures and regions around the world over the years, I find the differences compared to the United States quite fascinating. Some have an orientation that borders on brilliance, others leave me scratching my head wondering, “Now why would they do that?”
One country in particular stands out in my mind as inspiring on many levels: the Republic of Georgia. Granted, there were aspects that were difficult, but at the end of the day, what truly impressed me was the sheer intelligence of the people. I found Georgians generally to be some seriously sharp people, to the point where I began to feel a bit slow in comparison.
While their education is certainly more rigorous than what you usually find in the United States, I began to suspect something else was at play with their level of intelligence — beyond genetics or cultural leanings. Then one day I was chatting with my friend Tornike about how Georgian produce was the best I’ve ever tasted, anywhere. It was a far-cry from anything I’ve found in North America, even at organic farmer’s markets. Tornike pointed out that everything was grown “traditionally” — meaning no pesticides, chemicals or GMOs. It was also only of heirloom stock and grown within a few miles of our town, Batumi. Healthy soil rich with compost was the norm. And while their water supply is disinfected with chlorine, they do not add fluoride…
Monsanto has agreed to be sold to Bayer for $56.5 billion − a deal worth a total of $66 billion when Monsanto’s debt is taken into account. The combined company would be the world’s largest seller of both seeds and agrichemicals. Monsanto, arguably the most loathed GMO company on the face of the earth, has…
