Blast from the Past: More Proof that Monsanto is Evil

US Veteran Against the manufacturers:

Since at least 1978, several lawsuits have been filed against the companies which produced Agent Orange, among them Dow Chemical, Monsanto, and Diamond Alkali/Shamrock (which produced 5%[32]).

Hy Mayerson of the law firm The Mayerson Law Offices, P.C. was an early pioneer in Agent Orange litigation, working with renown environmental attorney Victor Yannacone in 1980 on the first class-action suits against wartime manufacturers of Agent Orange. In meeting Dr. Ronald A. Codario, one of the first civilian doctors to see afflicted patients, Mayerson, so impressed by the fact that an M.D. would show so much interest in a Vietnam veteran, forwarded more than a thousand pages of information on Agent Orange and the effects of dioxin on animals and humans to Codario's office the day after he was first contacted by the doctor as described in the book Waiting for an Army to Die: The Tragedy of Agent Orange by Fred A. Wilcox.[33]

The Mayerson Law Offices, P.C., with Sgt. Charles E. Hartz as their principal client, filed the first Agent Orange class action lawsuit, in Pennsylvania in 1980, for the injuries that soldiers in Vietnam suffered through exposure to toxic dioxins in the Agent Orange defoliant.[34] Attorney Hy Mayerson co-wrote the brief that certified the Agent Orange Product Liability action as a class action, the largest ever filed as of it’s filing.[35] Hartz’s deposition was one of the first ever taken in America, and the first for an Agent Orange trial, for the purpose of preserving testimony at trial, as it was understood that Hartz would not live to see the trial because of the brain tumor that began to develop while he was a member of Tiger Force, Special Forces, and LRRPs in Vietnam.[36][37][38] The firm also located and supplied critical research to the Veterans’ lead expert Dr. Ronald A. Codario, M.D., including approximately one hundred articles from toxicology journals dating back more than a decade, as well as data about where herbicides had been sprayed, what the effects of dioxin had been on animals and humans, and every accident in factories where herbicides were produced or dioxin was a contaminant of some chemical reaction.[39]

U.S. veterans obtained a $180 million settlement in a class action lawsuit in 1984, with most affected veterans receiving a one-time lump sum payment of $1,200.

The activated receptor exerts two major types of functions: enhancement of transcription of a battery of genes containing responsive elements in their promoter regions, and immediate activation of tyrosine kinases. A number of genes encoding drug-metabolizing enzymes, such as cytochrome P4501A1, 1A2, 1B1, glutathione S-transferase, and UDP-glucuronosyltransferase are members of an Ah receptor target gene battery. Alteration of expression of other networks of genes may be directly or indirectly regulated by the Ah receptor. Activation of the receptor by a ligand can result in endocrine and paracrine disturbances and alterations in cell functions including growth and 5
differentiation. Some of these effects have been observed both in humans and animals, suggesting the existence of common mechanisms of action.

Tollerud, chairman of environmental and occupational health sciences for the University of Louisville School of Public Health and Information Sciences, was vice chairman of the first federal committee that reviewed more than 230 studies and determined in 1993 that Agent Orange was linked to three cancers as well as skin and liver disorders. Other reviews have since confirmed links to dozens more cancers as well as some nerve disorders.

No one at the time expected the herbicides to harm the soldiers, he said.
"All the information I have seen is that the military -- and the scientific community involved in advising the military -- thought these were very safe compounds," Tollerud said.

Eiler said the Army told soldiers that the potent herbicides were harmless to humans -- that they could even take a swim in them without getting ill. (We're hearing this same advice regarding the oil spill today.)

"We used the empty barrels to catch rainwater to drink. I think that's why I've got it so bad," Eiler said. "When you're 18 years old, why would you argue? It was the only thing we had to catch rainwater."

Tollerud said most of the health problems come from dioxin that ended up in the herbicides when chemical manufacturers let quality controls slip as they ramped up production to meet government orders.
"It was a complete accident," Tollerud said.

This lawsuit filed against Monsanto & other companies proves that Monsanto is involved with the government & taking orders to create poisons.

I highly doubt that Monsanto's manufacturing of Dioxin was an accident.
Now we have judges lifting bans on their genetically modified soy.
The soldiers of Vietnam were guinea pigs & encouraged to swim in the herbicide-tainted water.

This is further proof that the government is in bed with Monsanto & their love child is named eugenics.

Corexit is the Dioxin of the 21st century.

Take care, best wishes, & remain vigilant!

monsanto isn't a company its a group of fanaticts trying to take over the biological world, only some people are too dumb to realize this and they will wait for the "government" to tell them what companies are good and bad and what is right or wrong, F**& the government they wont help us,

I will burn any monsanto field i see in my life ill tell ya that much and if you dont fight monsanto then you might as well join them.

Monsanto = Satan/Mason

Yes, they need to be eliminated.

They're most likely protected by TPTB to still exist after paying out on a $180 million law suit & causing death/sickness/pain. The fact that judges just lifted the ban on their genetically engineered soy is proof that they have decision-makers in their pocket & will stop at nothing to use people as guinea pigs in their warped experiments.

Please don't buy anything created by Monsanto. They need to be taken out. Permanently.

The fact that Vietnam soldiers were told that Dioxin was safe to swim in is more proof that we should not trust our government when they say that the Gulf is safe to swim in.
