8 Ways Monsanto is Destroying Our Health

“The deeper you can manipulate living structures, the more you can control food and medicine.” Dr. Vandana Shiva

Lots of talk these days about the bullying of young boys and girls in school by more aggressive students. This brings to my mind the biggest bully of all: the biotech company, Monsanto Corporation. Taken in context, Monsanto’s list of corporate crimes should have been enough to pull their corporate charter years ago. And yet we allow them to continue to destroy our food supply, our health and the planet. Monsanto or Monsatan? Take a look at the company’s track record and decide for yourself.

Agent Orange: Monsanto was the major financial beneficiary of this herbicide used to defoliate the jungles of Vietnam and destroy the health of American troops and their offspring. It also allowed Monsanto and other chemical companies to appeal for and receive protection from veterans seeking damages for their exposure to Agent Orange and any future biotech creations.

Aspartame: as far back as 1994 the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released a report listing 94 health issues caused by Aspartame. It has been shown to cause slow but serious damage to the human body and yet it is used extensively in many commercial products.

7 Foods Banned in Europe Still Available in the U.S.

Saccharin: studies have shown that saccharin caused cancer in test rats and mice; and in six human studies, including one done by the National Cancer Institute, that consuming artificial sweeteners, such as saccharin and cyclamate, resulted in bladder cancer.

these are but a few reasons, why i hope, sincerely, there is a "seed bank" . that our natural foods from days gone by are being kept from extinction. it doesn't make much sense, that these companies are destroying our food, and us, while claiming they are trying to save our food and keep the supply up for demand with less loss. unless of course, and i hate to say this, they are jpartnered with the companies that provide the medicines to bandaid the illnesses from eating these foods. food should sustain you, help you live, rather than make you sick.
