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. Ok, I don’t like it. I hear everyone complaining but what is the solution? Should we all plow up our yards and grow our own foods? Where do we buy seeds that are not genetically modified? Have you stopped buying food at the grocery store? How do you know what you are buying and where is was grown and who processed it? Where the people who processed the food healthy and their hands clean? When did the labels on food become the truth? Who could understand words they can’t pronounce let alone spell. The words on labels are a different language. I have enough touble understanding simple English. If you don’t like what the government is doing are you involved to change it or just complaining? I am not complaining, I am just asking questions. The politicians have to eat it too. None of us get off this planet alive, except Neil Armstrong. Give me solutions not complaints.

    • This site is here to create awareness. Everyone here is trying to do something about it and there are nothing but real stories from real people telling it how it is. I didn’t make this S%^# up. This is real.

  4. Tsk tsk.. They don’t want you to be educated about what is in your food. They FEAR you actually knowing. Of course we would immediately understand that GMOs cause sickness and disease [cancer!?!] And then it’s a domino effect. No GMO illness equals less Dr visits equals less trips to the pharmacy equals no $$$ for pharmaceutical giants equals no/less Campaign donations equals broke busted politicians… Simple as I can lay it out. Keep the American people sick so the American Politicians stay rich.. PATHETIC!!!!
