The World According to Monsanto (FULL LENGTH)
yuk on 18 May 2011
There’s nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have established the norm: that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control seed, they control food, they know it — it’s strategic. It’s more powerful than bombs. It’s more powerful than guns. This is the best way to control the populations of the world. The story starts in the White House, where Monsanto often got its way by exerting disproportionate influence over policymakers via the “revolving door”. One example is Michael Taylor, who worked for Monsanto as an attorney before being appointed as deputy commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1991. While at the FDA, the authority that deals with all US food approvals, Taylor made crucial decisions that led to the approval of GE foods and crops. Then he returned to Monsanto, becoming the company’s vice president for public policy.
Thanks to these intimate links between Monsanto and government agencies, the US adopted GE foods and crops without proper testing, without consumer labeling and in spite of serious questions hanging over their safety. Not coincidentally, Monsanto supplies 90 percent of the GE seeds used by the US market. Monsanto’s long arm stretched so far that, in the early nineties, the US Food and Drugs Agency even ignored warnings of their own scientists, who were cautioning that GE crops could cause negative health effects. Other tactics the company uses to stifle concerns about their products include misleading advertising, bribery and concealing scientific evidence.
News & Politics
What’s also incredibly sad is how few views SUCH an important video/movie has on youtube. This needs to be spread far and wide. The whole world needs to know that Monsanto, and other similar companies (Cargill, ADM etc), are pure evil, and have no interest in people, but only in their money. What’s stupid is once all the people are dead, there won’t be anymore money.

To everyone that reads this, please email all major food producers like Kraft, McCain, as well as big restaurant chains and tell them you do not buy their products because they contain GMOs (which is true for me, I won’t even buy something that has corn, canola or soy unless it’s organic). I emailed several and will continue to do so. I believe it’s similar actions that got the victories against GMO in Europe. Start emailing NOW!
