Monsanto’s Roundup & other claims to fame
August 24, 2007
Roundup is a pesticide as defined by the EPA. Roundup is a highly toxic and persistent pesticide. For numerous articles on Monsanto and Roundup, follow link below, while at the same time remembering the other contributions that Monsanto has made to society such as:
Saccharin, Astroturf, agent orange, dioxin, sulphuric acid, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), plastics and synthetic fabrics, research on uranium for the Manhattan Project that led to the construction of nuclear bombs, styrene monomer, an endless line of pesticides and herbicides (Roundup), rBGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone that makes cows ill), genetically engineered crops (corn, potatoes, tomatoes, soy beans, cotton).
Take a look at what Monsanto has done to Canadian canola farmer Percy Schmeiser, http://www.percyschmeiser.com. And he’s far from being the sole recipient of Monsanto’s vengeful wrath. Hundreds, perhaps thousands of farmers around the world are being sued after Monsanto’s police “find” their patented crops on the farmers’ lands without paying for use of the technology. See the Monsanto Technology Agreement, http://www.farmsource.com/images/pdf/2006%20EMTA%20Rev3.pdf, in which farmers must sign away all rights in order to sow Monsanto seed.
