is a multinational agricultural biotechnology corporation based in the United States. They are the world’s leading producer of
Roundup®, a herbicide with the active ingredient glyphosate.

Monsanto is also the largest producer of genetically engineered (GE) seeds on the planet, accounting for over 90% of the GE seeds planted globally in 2003. Monsanto introduced a genetically modified product (Roundup Ready Soybeans) that were resistant to Roundup. The first crops introduced were soybeans, followed by corn in 1998. “Roundup Ready” crops greatly improved a farmer’s ability to control weeds, since glyphosate could be sprayed in the fields without harming their crops.what-did-you-say?

TRANSLATION:  Roundup Kills Everything except the genetically engineered crop.   The seeds are engineered to resist the Roundup herbicide and further, the toxic (weed killing) residue of Glyphosate remains on the Roundup Ready seeds are genetically modified to withstand the herbicide toxicity.  This is also the primary purpose of ALL genetically modified seeds, to resist pest’s – drought – and most importantly pesticide and     herbicide.

Are you getting this?
Seeds that are “Roundup
Ready” will survive Monsanto’s glyphosate herbicide while killing everything around it.

WOW – Great Idea right?   WRONG!  when these crops are harvested, they contain high levels of glyphosate and it doesn’t just go away.  Millions of gallons of this have been sprayed all across the U.S. – for years!  Corn crops are treated this way too.  The Corn is fed to animals, used in cereal and many other products… in fact, you probably know that corn products are in 75% of the things you buy at the grocery store and all of these products have traces of herbicide.

In addition, because weeds are pretty “smart” – the ones that used to die from the RoundUp herbicide treatments don’t die anymore.  They have adapted and become tolerant of the product that used to kill them.  Sources confirm that as many as 20 new types of weeds nicknamed “SuperWeeds” have been found growing in GMO crop sites.

Throughout its history, Monsanto has developed chemical products which have eventually become controversial or been banned, including DDT, Agent Orange, Bovine Growth Hormone, and PCBs.

  1. I can not be leave that our government would allow such a crime. How dare they allow such bull.Yea kill us all off.Who cares, I do.Who are you shame, shame, shame.

  2. People need to wake up and realize what is actually in our food. No one likes to read labels, too time consuming? It infuriates me when I talk to people about such things and they brush me off. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help :-)

  3. Nice blog on Who is Monsanto! Much more investigation is needed and it is a global tragedy
    that millions upon millions of acres land in the US is already filled with GMO’s

    So much information has come to light in the last year that is forcing us to rethink
    (and re-write) some of our findings.

  4. Nice blog. We’ll be watching you carefully so don’t publish anything that’s false.

    what can we do?

    • Hi, thanks for your question. With regard to Monsanto… unfortunately not much. Presently, Monsanto
      representation is deeply embedded in the U.S. government.

      Monsanto’s business will go on long after you and I are gone however, with regard to their unconscionable tactics and strategic assault on the food supply? there is much we can do.

      1. Write to your State Legislators, an e-mail is fine too and you can send these more often. Be forthright and open-minded. Ask them to create and build support toward the labeling of genetically modified food.

      2. Talk to friends when possible, share the website links from – you may not be able to spend time on this but there may be others who can… let them know!

      3. Get more information on the topic and stay informed using sites like this one and others. The best thing you can do for yourself is cut certain things from your diet. Relax, it’s stuff you absolutely don’t need like anything with Nutri-Sweet – High Fructose Corn Syrup – and ultimately, look for Non-GMO produce. If we stop buying the stuff that is made of genetically modified products, we win.

      Keep an eye on the GMO labeling efforts in the U.S. Congress – this is a really BIG issue.
      It affects our health in so many ways. What do you think?

      Do people have a right to know what is in their food?

  6. interesting! I was wondering if you could give me the author and year of this article when it was written. It’s for a project I’m doing and I would love to use this source! I just need it for APA format resource paper and to cite parts of my paper. Thank you so much!

  7. Have heard of Monsanto several times recently but have never known who they are and what they do until now. A post on facebook today 20th June 2015 said Obama had just signed a bill which would benefit them. I have yet to read and find out how.

    I am appalled by what I have read on your sire and that this could be allowed.

    Although I live in Australia, I am sure our country is affected as well.

    I shall keep checking on this and will post your site to FB in the
    hope that everyone reads it.

    Thank you so much for the information.


    • Spread the word Susie! I love you for it. Genetically engineered seeds are created to be resistant to herbicide.
      We end up ingesting these herbicides and there is no hard data to support that these methods do not cause interruptions in human health. There is tons of evidence to support that they do cause health issues over the long term..

      Thanks for your support!
