It is really about profit. I've noticed that Alternative News tends to focus primarily on Monsanto, but Bayer and Aventis-Bayer CropScience started
it long before Monsanto did. It's complete profit for them....
Imagine for a moment.... that you work for a pharmaceutical company and technically the only way to increase your profits is if more people get sick
and have to buy medications as a result. And part of your pharmaceutical company has a "crop science" section. You sell pesticides, herbicides, and
suddenly they allow you to sell GMO seeds. You can hit the public 3 ways to increase your profit as a pharmaceutical company.
#1) you can sell harmful pesticides thru your crop science section. If people get diseases like cancer, then not only do you profit selling the
pesticide, but you profit off the meds the sick have to buy.
#2) you can sell GMO seeds to farmers thru your crop science section. If people get stomach illnesses, intestinal and digestive tract problems--then
you increase your profit double. Both in selling the seeds and in the meds that the sick have to buy.
#3) you can sell injectibles to livestock animals (claim it's to bulk weight or things they don't need like antibiotics for illnesses the livestock
doesn't have). If people get sick from eating livestock injected with various substances, then you as a pharmaceutical company profit--the sick
people have to buy your meds. If bacteria mutate in response to the unnecessary antibiotics given to livestock, then you increase your sales because
you as pharm company have to create new meds.
So yes. It's all about money. The Hippocratic Oath meant nothing to most of these people at the top rank of pharmaceutical corps.
Bayer and Aventis-Bayer Crop Science are about the only group with a criminal history and during WWII, some of them were executed for their criminal
experiments on humans and meds. But since WWII, they've been repeatedly sued (ex. StarLink corn - GMO). To be sued is only a small fraction of the
billions they make when they sell products thru crop science that make people ill. To criminally prosecute them again, you'd have to prove in a court
of law that it was intentional for profit (or racial--that they sell one product to a race in a 3rd world country but intentionally don't sell it to
their own race).
Monsanto and its corresponding pharmaceutical corp---they are just following Bayers lead. And everyone else that jumps in just does it for the money
(including some politicians or hired employees of the FDA).
