Many times I've seen where somebody puts a tremendous amount of time and effort into expressing themselves as effectively as possible, maybe we are
hoping that somebody else will understand us that also has the ability to make things change, as if we don't.
WE are in trouble as a whole and it was not supposed to be mine
problem to solve, but since it appears that so many of us
understand how poor 'the future' looks if we continue to accept the direction we are heading in, I believe it is OUR responsibility to DO something
Since MONSANTO has several former employee's in KEY positions at the white house and they are still trying to hide from the public eye, I think
it's just a matter of putting them in the 'public spotlight'.
Maybe that can be done through the people of this forum.
Most people are scared to participate in a discussion or spread information that is 'detrimental' to this government, and just to make it clear this
thread is about the crimes of MONSANTO, and the potential of making these murderous bastards STOP.
Just because the USG is in bed with this company does not give the USG the authority to protect them from their crimes against US!
Honestly, with what I have found and what I have sent the USG and posted online... they really do need some help.
Ok, I'll try to paint this bullseye perfectly for you.
ONE “organization” or “entity” is responsible for the following:
Providing the toxic chemicals to exterminate 6 million Jews,
Providing the toxic chemicals that exposed Vietnamese, Australians, Canadians and Americans, their children and grandchildren to Agent Orange,
Providing the toxic chemicals for the 8,485 victims of the Texas City Disaster,
Providing the toxic chemicals (plutonium & uranium) for the Little-Boy and the Fat-Man that instantly killed approximately 120,000 Japanese people-
95% of them civilians,
Providing the toxic chemicals that polluted 3,500 Anniston Alabama residents and their environment, AND intentionally hiding the exposure levels and
denying the health effects... for decades!
The same “entity” I am making you aware of also occupies senior positions in many, if not all of the USG 'protection agencies' today, from the
Sec. of Defense to the man who swore the president into office, and all the way down the line.
It appears as the people who thought they were in control have become victims of "mad-science", just like the rest of us.

New Research Shows Air Pollution Can Reduce Children's Lung Function
Children who live in polluted communities are five times more likely to have clinically low lung function-less than 80 percent of the lung function
expected for their age. New data from the Children's Health Study suggests that pollutants from vehicle emissions and fossil fuels hinder lung
development and limit breathing capacity for a lifetime.
"This is the longest study ever conducted on air pollution and children's health," "It shows that current levels of air pollution have adverse
effects on lung development in children between the ages of 10 and 18."
"Lung development in teenagers determines they’re breathing capacity and health for the rest of their lives,"
"The potential long-term effects of reduced lung function are alarming. It's second only to smoking as a risk factor for mortality. As lung function
decreases, the risk of respiratory disease and heart attacks increases."
Is this a crime against nature, or humans?
Monsanto has been LINKED to CANCER. There is an obvious connection between MONSANTO and the U.S. Government. This entire NATION has a synthetic
chemical (rBGH) ADDED to our MILK and our dairy products. Every other industrialized country in the world has banned the use of this MONSANTO
product, but they never quit fighting to influence their target 'customer base'.
You may be wondering... how does this happen? and which one of our 'protection agencies' are supposed to stop this from happening?
Sadly, the answer is that none of them are supposed to prevent it and it is the responsibility of NONE of our gov. agencies to limit the amounts of
synthetic poisoning we are being exposed to.
The White House
"EPA carries out a significant portion of its mission through the Operating Program, which includes its core responsibilities for regulatory
development, enforcement, research, and program grants to states."
"The program guarantees results, by eliminating costly regulation, litigation, inspection, and enforcement actions. As a result, industry compliance
has been nearly 100 percent."
The EPA’s "Operating Program" is a sick joke. Their core responsibilities are eliminated, and the industry is allowed to report the amounts of
poison they are dumping into our system by the ton, based on their honor.
Imagine, if the people who are fighting the 'war on drugs' just sat back and waited for the drug dealers to submit statements to the DEA that they
are selling too much crack.
That is what the EPA is doing to protect our environment. Since industry pollution is reported by the 'honor system', we will never know or
understand any accurate statistics on our levels of exposure to toxic chemicals.
It took four years for the EPA to 'phase-out' the reintroduction of Diazinon to the products on consumer shelves. Nothing was done to stop it,
nothing was done to prevent the millions of tons of Diazinon that were already in the hands of consumers to enter our system, even though...
The EPA finally had enough proof to acknowledge its potential health risks to children. It is among a class of chemicals known to attack the nervous
system and are believed to pose special threats to children, even at low doses.
(*Allowing this chemical re-introduction into household products for 4 more years to provide the greatest amounts of profit, is TERRORIST activity! *)
*1996* Study Warns of Colon and Breast Cancer Risks from rBGH Milk
United States Department of Health and Human Services
January 23, *1996*, Washington, DC - The Cancer Prevention The study summarizes evidence that rBGH increases levels of insulin-like growth factor
(IGF-1) in milk. IGF-1 is a powerful stimulator and regulator of cell-growth and division in humans and cows. The study concludes that increased IGF-1
levels are risk factors for breast and colon cancer.
“rBGH poses an even greater risk to human health than ever considered," warned Epstein M.D., Professor University of Illinois School of Public
Health and Chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition, author of the new report. "The FDA and Monsanto have a lot to answer for. Given the cancer
risks, and other health concerns, why is rBGH milk still on the market?"
" Monsanto 's claims that rBGH is perfectly safe have been proven dead wrong today. This study further validates the health concerns of millions of
consumers about this controversial product," said Michael Colby, Executive Director of Food and Water. "Only Monsanto is benefiting from this drug.
"The entire nation is currently being subjected to a large-scale adulteration of an age-old dietary staple by a poorly characterized and unlabeled
biotechnology product, which is very different than natural milk."
A highly condensed summary of an IGF- 1 Monsanto short term test in mature rats was released by FDA (Juskevich & Guyer, 1990). The agency alleges that
this study confirms IGF- 1's "lack of oral activity." At the outset it should be noted that the Monsanto test was contracted out to Hazelton
Laboratories, which has a two-decade history of misrepresentation of scientific data. (Epstein, 1978).
The FDA has failed to investigate the effects of long-term feeding of IGF- 1 and rBGH-milk on growth, or on more sensitive sub-cellular effects, in
infant rats or infants of any other species.
Who should we notify about this?
In a 1989 letter the FDA was warned that the effects of IGF-1 "could include premature growth stimulation in infants, [breast enlargement] in young
children and breast cancer in adult females." "Further studies will be required to determine whether the ingestion of higher than normal
concentrations of bovine insulin-like growth factor is safe for children, adolescents and adults." (AMA, 1991 ! ). Instead of further study, the FDA
allowed for uncontrolled, unlabeled sales of treated milk to unwitting consumers.
Given the potential health impacts of consumption of MILK and other dairy products derived from rBGH treated cows, all such products at a minimum be
labeled so that consumers are aware of what they are purchasing and consuming. More prudently the FDA approval of rBGH should be withdrawn until the
agency performs adequate long term testing on the impacts of increased levels of IGF- 1 in milk and other dairy products derived from rBGH treated
These practices are so frequent as to preclude dismissal as exceptional aberrations and, in many instances, arguably rise to the level of

Monsanto found guilty of International Bribery
The jury in Gadsden, Ala., a town 20 miles from Anniston, yesterday held Monsanto and its corporate successors liable on all six counts it
considered: negligence, wantonness, suppression of the truth, nuisance, trespass and outrage. Under Alabama law, the rare claim of outrage typically
requires conduct "so outrageous in character and extreme in degree as to go beyond all possible bounds of decency so as to be regarded as atrocious
and utterly intolerable in civilized society."
Monsanto, the leading global producer of genetically engineered seeds and crops, has been found guilty of bribing government officials in
The Justice Department has fined Monsanto $1.5 million for bribing the Indonesian Ministry of Environment to allow the company to ignore required
environmental impact studies before proceeding to plant genetically modified crops.
The only people who would pay to RAPE someone else’s land, are the people who have been allowed to RAPE their own land for free!
Meanwhile, in the U.S., bribery seems hardly necessary for the Gene Giant, given that the Bush administration and regulatory agencies are stacked with
former Monsanto employees and pro-biotech bureaucrats. Monsanto strengthened its grip on U.S. policymaking last week when one of its former lobbyists,
Martha Scott, was appointed as Staff Director of the Senate Agriculture Committee.

apparently untroubled by aspartame's clouded past, including a 1980 FDA Board of Inquiry, comprised of three independent scientists, which confirmed
that it "might induce brain tumors." The FDA had actually banned the drug based on this finding, only to have Searle Chairman Donald Rumsfeld
(currently the Secretary of Defense) vow to "call in his markers," to get it approved.

Can WE win this war ?
Winning the war on cancer means preventing cancer. Yet cancer is a multi-billion dollar business. Isn’t preventing cancer bad for business? It
is for the pharmaceutical and mammography businesses. These industries have intricate ties to U. S. policy makers, directing research funds to insure
their continued profits in cancer diagnosis/treatment. It’s time for reform.
We are all losing.

Monsanto's Genetically Modified Milk Ruled Unsafe by The United Nations
The Codex Alimentarius Commission, the U.N. Food Safety Agency representing 101 nations worldwide, has ruled unanimously in favor of the 1993 European
moratorium on Monsanto's genetically engineered hormonal milk (rBGH).
If we watch the EPA fail us, we are failing ourselves.
The FDA says it is now in a listening mode
In another rule, FDA has failed to require an adequate battery of safety tests. Even with the most rigorous testing, long-term effects will not be
known for years and perhaps generations. Without segregation and labeling FDA cannot perform the responsibilities delegated to it by Food and Drug
The FDA says it is now in a listening mode. If its ears are truly opened, then its conscience should have been touched. What is at stake is the
safety of the nation's and ultimately the world's food supply.
What is troubling is that the government tries to deny that any genetically engineered food has caused harm. It is just running away from reality.
Labeling and long-term safety testing are only two steps in that process and we should not go another day without them. It is unfair, unsafe and
unwise. As the evidence continues to come out, it is no longer rhetorical to ask what the industry is trying to hide by not labeling these foods, and
why the insurance companies will not touch bioengineered food.
As mentioned on the earlier panel, rBGH has been rejected in every major industrialized nation. In fact, a recent report by Health Canada
indicates that the FDA misreported the findings of Monsanto's ninety-day rat feeding study. Even the heavily corporate-influenced Kodak's alimentary
commission has refused to certify the safety of rBGH despite heavy pressure from the United States.
Yet, we are forced to eat and drink products from cows injected with rBGH in secret because of prohibitive labeling requirements written for the
FDA by a Monsanto employee.
There are several actions that need to be taken that are out of the FDA's hands, including ratification of the conventional and biological diversity
for which it is shameful that the United States has not signed.
The greatest controversy in FDA history was the approval process for Monsanto's genetically engineered bovine growth hormone. We shouldn't be
here today. We should not be in this room, and I shouldn't be here because in 1994 Congress had a Bill that was going to require mandatory labeling
of all foods that were influenced by genetic engineering.
When Monsanto made their genetically engineered bovine growth hormone, they noticed that laboratory animals were getting cancer, and they noticed that
cows were getting mastitis, ulcers on their udders; they were putting more pus and bacteria into the milk. In 1958 Robert Delaney, a Congressman from
New York, put in a Delaney Amendment. It was named after him. The Delaney Amendment stated that if a food additive caused cancer it was not to be
approved -- pretty good law, right?
Well, Monsanto got their attorney, Michael Taylor from the firm of King and Spaulding -- by the way, when they started in 1979 they groomed their
attorney now in the Supreme Court, Clarence Thomas, the same law firm -- Monsanto's attorney, Michael Taylor wrote and minimized the Delaney
Amendment, an interpretation of the Delaney Amendment which became the new protocol, the new standard operating procedure at FDA. They minimized
cancer. Michael Taylor was hired by the Food and Drug Administration and became the second most powerful man there, Monsanto's attorney. He wrote the
standard operating procedures. In other words, we see cancer; ignore it.
Margaret Miller, Susan Sechen, Monsanto's scientists, were hired by the FDA to review Monsanto's own research. Margaret Miller knew cows were
getting mastitis. The first week at the FDA, December 3, 1989, she was given broad power -- and here is an effect of genetic engineering nobody has
considered -- she knew cows were getting sick from the genetically engineered hormone; she changed the amount of antibiotics that farmers could have
in their milk. She increased it by 100 times.
Jerome Moore's paper said “if there is a middle of the chain protein change there could be Alzheimer's, or sickle cell anemia, or diabetes.
Monsanto, four months after the hormone was approved, one of their scientists, Bernard Violand, published, in the July 3, 1994 issue of the journal
Protein Science evidence that Monsanto made a mistake. Oops! Monsanto created a freak amino acid!
It seems to me that we are embarking on a dangerous path from which we cannot return and this government is making a grave error in judgment by not
exercising more prudence.
Given the history of repeated assurances by the government and corporations and a long list of technologies such as pesticides, antibiotics or RbGH
that were all declared safe based on research and then to find out, a few years later, that crucial evidence was not evaluated properly or even
suppressed and now are shown to be unsafe.
I have come to have little or no confidence in the government's ability to exercise sound judgment in these matters on its own. The bottom
line is that we don't need genetic engineering. This path primarily benefits those who are reaping the profits. - Mafia DRUG dealers!
I do not appreciate being treated as a guinea pig. I believe genetic engineering violates nature and I am deeply concerned that we have no way of
cleaning up any unintended environmental catastrophes.
"When people are trying to kill you and when they attack because they hate freedom, other disputes from Frankenfood to bananas and even important
issues like the environment suddenly look a bit different." - Condoleezza Rice, George Bush's national security adviser
Since public awareness and exposure of the truth about this company and their intentional 'adulteration' of the worlds food supply is their only
enemy, will you help me find a vulnerable spot to attack...
or just spread the word?
The only protection this government can provide them is by keeping their crimes out of the news, and they are doing their very best!
We don't have to 'overthrow the government', all we have to do is expose their soft underbelly.
