Imagine That September 03, 2004 10:39 AM

Monsanto putting out dangerous products? Who would've thought? I think anyone who knows anything about Monsanto can just assume that whatever they put out will have some adverse/dangerous affect the living. But of course, we don't know all the products they are associated with. Thanks for the notice.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
