American biotechnology has turned Argentina into the worlds third largest soybean producer, but the chemicals powering the boom are not confined to cotton and corn fields. They routinely contaminate homes, classrooms and drinking water.

On May 1, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency even raised the allowable levels of glyphosate residues in food, concluding that based on studies presented by Monsanto, “there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result to the general population or to infants and children from aggregate exposure.”

Monsanto has a lot to answer for. IMHO, Monsanto is in league with the devil.

Savage indictment.

Shared news article and analysis over social media to raise and spread awareness.

❤️❤️Noted...What a shameful indictment on Monsanto, they are perpetrators of a slow painful, miserable slow death. This company needs a bomb under it. Apparently they own the rights to all seeds and a home gardener needs to be able to find old world seeds that haven't been modified. How true that is I'm not sure.❤️❤️Thank you...Dandelion❤️❤️

The EU lowered the allowed levels in foods while the US increased theirs.

Well - I'm really very afraid the EU lowered the levels in food - I call this paid murder for a time, because they are accepting with approval that the population is being damaged and slowly poisoned; And we pay for it in the threefold sense - first for food, then for the doctor and later with life!
Thanks Dandelion

#death to Monsanto #monsantokills
I think my message would be censored.

How sad. And their chickens drink it and they eat it. They wash their clothes in it sand are forced to breathe the dust. They are murderers. @ Kaliope I would add one more thing to your list. suffering. Thank you Dandelion

For years I've written Dawn, MONSANTO = DEATH, and that is not an exaggeration. I agree, they need to go but again we are dealing with a Corporate entity with tentacles reaching around this world. One would had hoped the death and destruction caused by Agent Orange in Vietnam would have had the world turning it's back on their poisons, but with corruption in our governments, no one protects the mostly poor and middle class in the world.

The US has increased what is acceptable in it's foods to match what is going on in Argentina. They spray more of the crap onto the crops, there is bound to be more of the toxin in our foods at elevated levels. I'm recalling how the acceptable or "safe" levels of radiation was changed in the USA and I believe Canada as well after Fukushima happened.

Indeed, all over the world they are killing us left and right and many times slowly painfully unto death.

Thanks Dandelion for providing the link to the extremely informative and disturbing article from Michael Warren and Natacha Pisarenko. Monsanto has a lot to answer for!
Sadly noted.

Where is the government in all this? Are they bought , too? Has Monsanto taken over their government? HOW can these people sleep?

Must have Hartson, these companies wield a lot of power. Look at how inept our own Country is and we felt we had lots of protections, so other Nations are simply bought off, lots of money grease the palms of those who should be protecting us but are not.

Our government is falling apart and taking us to new lows. Unless we can convince the companies to clean up their act, we will surely end up like Argentina. We've already seen field workers dying because the restrictions have been lifted. Thanks for sharing, Dandelion.
