HOW DID WE GET HERE:
A BRIEF HISTORY OF MONSANTO AND THE U.S. GOVERNMENT

1991: Margaret Miller was appointed Deputy Director of FDA by George Bush Sr. She oversaw the approval of the genetically engineered growth hormone rBGH. Prior to the appointment, she was one of Monsanto's top scientists developing rBGH. At the FDA, she approved the same rBGH studies she previously led at Monsanto.

1991: A right-wing extremist, Clarence Thomas, was appointed to the Supreme Court, despite nationwide opposition. Prior to his appointment, Thomas was a lawyer for Monsanto, a notorious chemical polluter and ag biotech promoter. Thomas would later cast the decisive vote in 2000 on the Supreme Court, ratifying the stolen election that put George Bush Jr. into office.

1992: Michael Taylor was appointed FDA's Deputy Commissioner for Policy, a role created to expedite the approval process of genetically engineered foods. Prior to his appointment, Taylor was an attorney for Monsanto. Taylor went on to become Monsanto's Vice-President.

1993: Rufus Yerxa was nominated as U.S. deputy to the World Trade Organization. Prior to his apointment as one of the most powerful bureaucrats in the world regarding international trade policies, Rufus was Monsanto's Chief Counsel.

1996: Michael Kantor was appointed U.S. Secretary of Commerce. At that time, Kantor was also on the Board of Directors of Monsanto.

2000: The White House appoints Carol Tucker Foreman as the sole "consumer advocate" on an international committee assessing genetically modified foods. Prior to her appointment, Foreman was a lobbyist for Monsanto.

2001: Anne Veneman was appointed head of the USDA, in charge of regulating, among other things, genetically engineered crops. Veneman previously served on the Board of Directors of Calgene, a Monsanto biotech subsidiary.

2001: Donald Rumsfeld was sworn in as Secretary or Defense. Rumsfeld was previously the CEO of the Searle pharmaceutical corporation, acquired by Monsanto.

2001: Linda Fisher was appointed Deputy Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Her regulatory chores included "enforcing" pesticide regulations, such as Monsanto's herbicide, Roundup, commonly sprayed on GE crops. Fisher was previously Monsanto's Vice-President of Government Affairs. Previously Fisher served as a high-level staffer for another biotech cheerleader, President Bill Clinton.

2002: George Poste was appointed head the bioterrorism division of Homeland Security. Previously, Poste was a Monsanto animal specialist.

    Sorry if I have not been on here much. I have noticed more & more of the care2 reps basically advertising GMO crap as "Healthy" and no way am I having any of that! I am also on Multiply & Facebook. If you would rather contact there? Let me know! I will still pop back in here now & then!

    Hi there Lisa - thanks for your message on my page re: pet food. I am well aware of these issues & refer readers to this website:
    http://www.truthaboutpetfood.com/
    I only feed my two rescue/adopted kitties Wellness and related brands - most Wellness wet food, and Wellness high-protein/no-carb dry food at night before I go to bed. (My little girl kitty is in REMISSION from genetic diabetes due to proper dietary care - refusing to use "prescription diet" food straight from factory farm hell. My boy kitty is thriving and in total recovery from IBS. YAY!)
    I am part of the no-kill movement and do not financially support orgs such as HSUS and APSCA until they change to no-kill [except for merciful euthanasia for terminal illness/injuries]. Please check out the following: http://www.bestfriends.org/nomorehomelesspets/

    The brief rundown on how we ended up with toxic waste as food. Genetically modified = heartburn and vomitting = Monsanto Drug company also into the GM foods business. The government has allowed many of Monsanto's employees into high positions in our government. Starting with Bush Sr. then Bill Clinton and then of course Bush JR. I think it needs to stop so our children and our families stop getting cancer. Doctors tell people and on TV it says that acid reflux disease leads to cancer of the throat. Meanwhile due to this crap in our food everyone is getting acid reflux and Monsanto insists that their Genetically modified foods are good for us. I personally cannot eat it. I vomit every time I do. They have even allowed it into our organic foods under the pretext of Acorbic acid. My body doesn't except it. I have to juice oranges to get it.

    Hello all. I am new to this site. I am just trying to get the news out there that all of our food is so full of antibiotics that it has become hazardous to our health. With antibiotics in our all of our food our bodies do not have a chance to really be healthy. What is it in? Well Farmers feed antibiotics to all Cows, Chickens, pigs and turkeys. The also spray them on all fruits and vegetables. Some farmed shrimp are also growing in water that is laced with antibiotics. So basically it is in everything. Known causes of illness from antibiotic use. Lack of vitamins, skin cancer, stomach issues, food allergies, rashes and all types of allergies like environmental illness. Throw in genetically modified foods that are modified with not only other foods but also germs and bacteria, as well as pesticides making our food a toxic wasteland that will cause cancer.
