Hi ATS.

I´m back with an update on this thread.

kindly asked the mods to delete my last thread.

i´ve got some more information so the thread might be somewhat more interesting.


In an exciting act of grassroots resistance to Monsanto and their GMOs that are ravaging the planet, activist Adam Eidinger has infiltrated a Monsanto shareholder meeting and posted the video up on Youtube. Eidinger discusses the negative impact of GMO crops, Roundup, and other Monsanto creations on human health and the environment. As a result, a shocked Monsanto spokesman (identified as CEO Hugh Grant by Eidinger) does his best to brush off the concerns and assure the activist that the company — the same company that has been found to be running slave rings on their GMO crop fields — cares very much about the concerns of their shareholders.



One of the major concerns highlighted by activist Adam Eidinger, who identifies himself as an ‘occupy activist’, is the increased usage of pesticides on crops as a result of Monsanto’s failing Bt-infused GMO crops. Bt is a toxin incorporated into genetically modified crops in order to kill different insects, though recently it was exposed that Bt usage has subsequently spawned insect populations which are resistant to the biopesticide. At least 8 populations of insects have developed resistance, with 2 populations resistant to Bt sprays and at least 6 species resistant to Bt crops as a whole.


so if i comprehend this right.

they´ve got to spray more and more chemicals that are growing evermore toxic on our food to get rid of the bugs.

as i´ve pointed out in another thread.

it´s pretty hard to find studies that investigate GMO food effects on humans, let alone on animals.


In a follow-up video, Adam Eidinger asks just how much Monsanto spends to squelch GMO labeling campaigns. Of course you may remember that Monsanto had admitted to influencing the outcome of the Colorado labeling initiative which ended in failure. With a number of phony pro-GMO protests and farmers likely paid off by Monsanto, the company managed to alter the result. The actions bring into question why Monsanto would deny consumers the right to know if their foods contain genetically modified ingredients.


what do you think about this?

i believe it's our right to know what's in our food.

nature has perfected our foods over god knows how many years and it has done a fine job at that.

i prefer to not eat frankenfood thank you.


Perhaps it has to do with the fact that sales would decrease substantially, as consumers are catching on to the dangers of GMO foods. Monsanto managed to rake in $11.8 billion in sales during the 2011 fiscal year that ended Aug 31, and they have no intention of slowing down their hazardous production — even if it means destroying your health along with the genetic integrity of the planet.



here are the awesome videos










Whether you like it or not, chances are Monsanto contaminated the food you ate today with chemicals and GMOs. Monsanto controls much of the world’s food supply at the expense of food democracy worldwide. This site is dedicated to empowering citizens of the world to take action against Monsanto on September 17th, 2012.


are you going to take part?
i know i will.

i find this a rightious cause and will be demanding more transparancy!

do you?

See the odd thing is, I do not understand why anti-monopoly laws have not kicked in to stop Monsanto taking so much control?

Agricultural biotechnology will find a supporter occupying the White House next year, regardless of which candidate win the election in November


quote taken fromt he Monsanto Inhouse Newsletter 2000.
