8 Reasons Not To Trust Monsanto With Your Food [Infographic]

 

Here’s how Monsanto characterizes itself on its official Twitter profile:

“Monsanto is an agricultural company using innovation to help farmers produce more while conserving more.”

Sounds great, right?

What Monsanto doesn’t tell you is that their specialty is actually agricultural chemicals. Dangerous, untested chemicals. And genetic modification of food crops that’s been scientifically proven to be harmful to human health and the environment.

In the infographic below, artist Joe Mohr chronicles thecompanys toxic and deadly past, and reasons why local, organic food should be the only thing gracing your cupboards and fridge.

It's so sad that this company is being allowed to continue using dangerous chemicals on food that we put into our bodies. Monsanto doesn't care about people at all, they only care about making money!

All food should be organic!

We produce organic wine and fruits but we also have the problems with the neighbours they use BAYER, BASF, MERCK, and so on. Not so much better than MONSANTO

Monsanto doesn't care what they do to the population as long as they make a buck. They absolutely know they are poisoning the public. Back in the 60's referring to the complaints in Anniston Alabama, in memos to the government they said they weren't willing to lose one dollar.

For those who blindly state just eat organic. How can you be guaranteed its organic when the farm is in an are where GM crops are growing, the seeds are blown all over by the wind. Its time organic farmers started to take their neighbors to court and they will think twice before planting the GM toxins.
