Monsanto-Funded "Research" Reveals Monsanto Products Are Safe
A review on glyphosate (Monsanto's invention and key ingredient in their Roundup herbicide formulation) titled, "Developmental and reproductive outcomes in humans and animals after glyphosate exposure: a critical analysis," was published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health late last year which claimed the following:
[T]he available literature shows no solid evidence linking glyphosate exposure to adverse developmental or reproductive effects at environmentally realistic exposure concentrations.
People are waking up to a degree, California and a couple other states have GMO labeling on the ballot this fall. If this happens Monsanto's days are numbered. People have been educated to the danger these crops pose, there is no turning back.
Ok, this is about Big Pharma, but their modus operandi is very similar.
Vioxx was a so-called blockbuster drug—a designation given to extremely popular drugs that generate a minimum of $1 billion in annual sales. Vioxx was marketed in more than 80 countries, and pulled in $2.5 billion in worldwide sales in 2003 alone (the year before it was pulled from the market due to its heart risks).
It's tragic that Vioxx was removed only AFTER 60,000 people died.
For this Merck was fined $321 million.
Nice little profit there even after killing 60 000 people.
I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
