Monsanto’s history of selling poison, labeled as a useful product, casts doubt on whether any product that they sell should be trusted.
From Agent Orange to Pesticides and Genetically Engineered Crops. Why Not to Trust Monsanto.
During its early years, Monsanto produced PCBs (Polychlorinated biphenyl) to be used in various industrial applications. PCBs, while very stable and good at acting as a liquid insulator, are extremely toxic to virtually all forms of life – they are carcinogenic, highly toxic, and corrosive upon contact with skin or mucus membranes. Even as evidence mounted of the toxicity of PCBs, Monsanto continued to produce them until they were forced to stop when the government banned all domestic production of PCBs in 1977.
While not as dangerous as “agent orange” or DDT, there are several serious problems associated with glyphosate pesticide use. Glyphosate pesticides have the potential to breed “super-weeds”, in the same way that antibiotics breed “super-germs”. The pesticide kills all but the strongest pests, leaving the hardiest members of the population to repopulate the area. Eventually, once the weaker pests are culled from the gene pool, “super-weeds” are all that remain; at this point, modern pesticides will become nearly useless and far stronger (and more toxic) ones will need to be employed.
In addition to their potential to create super-weeds, some studies link glyphosate pesticides to damage to human cells, particularly in fetuses.

So let's thank Monsanto for poisoning us all, ruining the environment and laughing at us while they did it and cost lives while hiding under govt. penalty protection here in the good ole' USA! No wonder all other countries are beginning to hate us!
