Excellent post Janet...To think that these people and organizations do this for own GOOD.This links all involved to the manipulation of humanity through food,chemical,biological and technological agendas for MONEY.As you posted the many l;inks to the top of this planets ruler[Queen Lilibit],the wife of Monsanto is related to the Queen!We are literally loyal[programmed]
subjects for the Queen/Pope and their Alien/Reptilian friends.
However there are some Global companies that are not controlled by the Queen and her henchmen.Agrogreen Canada is one of them.We entered into a
research project with the Queen to develop technologies for Hydroponic Organic food production.We worked with one of the worlds leading research scientists,at Canada's Government research centre in Harrow.Although we were using the GMO seed stock for seedless cucumbers that was genetically pre-disposed to various nutrient deficiencies[chemical addiction],pest invasion and most notably powdery mildew attack.In spite of the costs and
the attempts to discourage us we were successful enough to have inspired the Queen to terminate our research project.The plants that were treated with our product were healthier and more productive than they had hoped.
You see people the program is for zero nutrition in all foods...they may look,taste and appear to be healthy or ORGANIC...but be aware that, it is
ALL toxic!!!
Other things you may want to look into...Codex Alimentarius[the global,
UN backed poison the world organization that goes back thousands of years.]
American Association of Plant Food Control Officials[AAPFCO] who have partnered with Monsanto,ADM,Cargill and others to permit synthetic GMO plants and fertilizers.Most noteable are the synthetic versions proposed by ADM of the human building blocks for life...Amino Acids derived from none other than Monsanto's GMO corn/soy toxins.

Wake up Save Our Earth...Get Conscious now...Support Hemp,Neem and any other Earth saving Technology that you can find.Say no to the Queen and her program now! Don't be afraid...we are still here...we are here to save our Planet for everyone...We will not stop...ever!

Wow, Janet, this article is a real eye-opener. Much as I love my organic Silk Soy Creamer, I am boycotting Silk and its parent company, Dean Foods, from this day forward due to Dean's close ties to Monsanto and its use of GM soybeans from China. I have been buying Silk for many years and am disappointed that the brand's integrity has been so compromised by Dean. Again, thanks for posting this important link. Anne

You're not kidding, Anne P! 'Silk' was the item that stopped me in my tracks--having just bought some that day, as usual.

O my! SO many!!!

Though in fairness, the Barack Obama connection is from a guy who QUIT Monsanto--kept meticulous records, and I suspect that's one of the reasons he was hired.
And Michael-----there's NO question you are absolutely correct, and you Agrogreen fellas make me proud to be a Canadian.

Besides our parents our DNA has been modified by Monsantos PCB's so in reality we have 3 parents. Naturally Monsanto's PCB's were dumped into the environment by many other bad corporations Con Ed, GE, Westinghouse and others that they all are guilty of making all living things on planet earth something less, alterd from gods intent. So my brothers and sisters rejoice we all can share our cancer stories.

Google "Prescott Bush" and eugenics .. they control our food ... they crash our econoy ... now they deny us health care

Assuming disease is partially related to diet, then the elephant in the room is Genetically Modified Foods currently in approximately 70% of all processed food on your supermarket shelves and in your restaurant food. These frankenfoods have not been properly tested for safety and have a disastrous effect on global warming and cross contaimination by cross pollination (a naturally occurring process of Mother Nature). There is no labeling required for foods containing GMO's in the US. Studies in other countries show it compromises the immune system as well as containing allergens from genetic splicing. GM Foods destroy Mother Nature's food soil shelf by killing off essential nutrients and micronutrients in the soil which plants need to create their own healthy immune systems. They require more pesticide, herbicide, fungicide use. There are 10's of millions of Genetically Modified food crops in the US with cross contamination by pollination to other crops. Superweeds have been created giving off superpollen to further affect allergy sufferers on an environmental level. Wake up America and fight back with your dollar. Support organic farming and the banning of genetically modified foods by Monsanto, et. al and the biotech industries. PS ... They are also in your pharamaceuticals now that use corn in the production of meds. Green deserts (crops with no nutritional value) and millions of acres of dead soil are in our not too distant future.

We need UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE for ALL AMERICANS NOW!
