8 Ways Monsanto is Destroying Our Health

  • 2 of 4

Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH): a genetically modified hormone injected into dairy cows to produce more milk, despite the fact that more milk was needed. The cows suffer excruciating pain due to swollen udders and mastitis. The pus from the infection enters the milk supply requiring more antibiotics to be given to the cows. BST milk may also cause breast cancer, colon cancer and prostate cancer in humans.

5 Crazy and New Genetically Modified Foods

RoundUp: the worlds most commonly used herbicide and weed killer has been linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, in a study by eminent oncologists Dr. Lennart Hardell and Dr. Mikael Eriksson of Sweden. Used on genetically modified crops resistant to RoundUps active ingredient glyphosate, environmentalists and health professionals are concerned that far from reducing herbicide use, glyphosate resistant crops may result in increased residues in food to which consumers will be exposed.

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.
