This is a great read…look at what Monsanto is now trying to do since people are beginning to realize this is one of THE most detrimental organizations ON THE PLANET!-A.M.

mercolaMany in the alternative media have long warned against genetically engineered (GE) crops and other genetically altered foods, pointing out the blatant lies presented by the chemical technology and junk food industry, led by Monsanto.

I have long designated Monsanto the most dangerous corporation on the planet, and clearly this is a growing sentiment.

Two years ago, the Natural Society named Monsanto the worst company of 20111—a distinction earned for “threatening both human health and the environment.” And, as reported by Forbes2 that same year:

If you talk to the average consumer, biotech is not on the top 10 list of food safety issues, once you get through sugar and salt and all of those other issues. So I think there is an opportunity to reframe that conversation.”

Whether or not Monsanto might be able to rehabilitate its devilish reputation remains to be seen. Quite frankly, I’m skeptical, considering the fact that their entire business model is based on flawed science that threatens the entire food supply.
