Monsanto is genuinely one of the most vile, corrupt, power hungry, and completely amoral organizations I have ever heard of. First is there most famous vile act, creating Agent Orange. The U. S government who wanted to get Viet Cong militants out of their forest hiding spots by destroying large amounts of forested land across Vietnam. They asked Monsanto to create a chemical weapon of such power and they did Agent Orange. Unfortunately the chemical weapon caused over 400,000 people to be killed or maimed,500,000 children to be born with birth defects,1 million people to have health problems or disability, and thousands of US veterans suffering or dying from it's effects to this day. Not to mention them dumping tens of thousands of pounds of PCBS into the waterways of Anniston Alabama which lead to the highest concentration of toxic pollutant ever recorded in history. A memo from a executive of Monsanto read "We can't afford to lose a dollar of profit". Also there is there research on uranium to be used for the Manhattan Project's first Atomic Bomb which would later be dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki killing hundreds of thousands of Japanese, Korean and US military servicemen, and poisoning millions more. As well their was their Bovine Growth Hormone, injected into dairy cows to produce more milk. Cows subjected to the hormone suffered excruciating pain due to swollen udders, and mastitis. Pus from the resulting injection entered the milk supply requiring the use of additional antibiotics. Milk from the genetically modified growth hormone has been linked to breast cancer, colon cancer, and prostate cancer in humans. Also their was their manufacturing if NutraSweet which years later in a U. S Department of Health and Services report was discovered to have caused over 94 health issues. It was also discovered the chemical was originally called Aspartame a chemical which during the clinical trials conducted on 7 infant monkeys caused one monkey to die and the other five to have horrible seizures. Monsanto knew of the toxic power of the chemicals but ignored it and bought the company that sold it anyway. Also there was their selling of Saccharin to Coca Cola as a artificial sweetener despite it being dangerously poisonous and causing cancer in test rats and mice. The government tried to sue to stop it's manufacture but lost and Saccharin was sold anyway. They where also the first manufacturers of insecticide DDT to combat malaria transmitted mosquitoes but was later discovered to accumulate in fatty tissues and in milk and contributes to the degeneration of livers and kidneys and is a potent disrupter of the central nervous system. They even falsified cancer research and used the tainted results to delay the federal regulation of PCBs, the chemical of which they dumped enormous amounts of toxic waste in areas across the world including Sauget MO, and South Wales UK. Also their is the monopolization of corn in the United States with 80% of the corn planted in the U. S having their trademark on it. They tried to maintain the monopoly by creating a "Terminator Seed" that automatically sterilizes the plant so it can no longer make anymore seeds forcing the farmers to buy new seeds every time they plant. Then they forced the farmers to sign a binding contract saying the won't use the seeds the plants make. And if they do Monsanto sues them. And if accidental cross pollination occurs the crops belong to Monsanto and the farmers are forced to pay. Then there is the creation of RoundUp which due to it's ability to eradicate weeds literally overnight was adopted by farmers, it's use increased even more when Monsanto introduced RoundUp Ready or glyphosate-resistant crops enabling farmers to saturate the entire field with weedkiller without killing the crops. It was later discovered it was linked to butterfly mortality, and the proliferation of super weeds. Studies in rats have shown consistently negative health impacts ranging from tumors, altered organ function, and infertility to cancer and premature death. The awful part is that it has been found in samples of groundwater as well as soil and even in streams of air throughout the Midwest and increasingly in food. Also there manufacturing of petroleum based fertilizer after purchasing a major oil refinery. Those petroleum based fertilizers can kill beneficial soil micro organisms sterilizing the soil and creating a dependence to the synthetic replacements. Just increasing the dwindling supply of oil. They where also behind synthetic Polystyrene a plastic widely used in food packaging ranked 5th in the EPA's 1980s list of chemicals whose production generates the most total hazardous waste. Not to mention their control of the cotton industry in India with the chemically injected cotton they produce causes new pest to come to the farms, and to control these new pest farmers are forced to use 13 times more pesticides than they where using prior to the introduction of chemically induced cotton. Due to this nearly 300,000 Indian farmers have committed suicide since 1995 being driven to insurmountable debt. Also due to the traveling of pesticides through the high fructose corn syrup and the nectar from contaminated plants, Monsanto has caused the bee population to severely drop. They are responsible for the extinction of the golden toad. Monsanto’s Roundup is toxic. Truly Monsanto is the single most diabolical corporation on Earth today.
