This is a case of a french farmer; Paul Francois, who inhaled Monsanto's 'LASSO' aka alachlor (herbicide), and in the folowing days experienced
neurological problems, headaches, memory loss. Later Francois' health became so bad he was un able to do his work as a farmer.
Monsanto did not leave adequate warnings in regards to exposure of the chemical-herbicide LASSO, and the French court agreed to the claims and
evidence of the case, ruling Monsanto guilty and responsible for Paul Francois' suffering.
Monsanto guilty for poisoning in France
The report goes further on to point out that the Enviromental Protection Agency (EPA) has declared alachlor (LASSO) as seriously dangerous, with such
health affects such as; kidney, spleen, eyes and can lead to anemia and cancer.
In 2007, France has banned LASSO from use in the country.
What is alachlor?
Alachlor is an herbicide from the chloroacetanilide family. Its mode of action is elongaseinhibition, and inhibition of geranylgeranyl
pyrophosphate (GGPP) cyclisation enzymes, part of the gibberellin pathway. It is marketed under the trade names Alanex, Bronco, Cannon, Crop
Star, Intrro, Lariat, Lasso, Micro-Tech, and Partner. Use of alachlor as a herbicide has been banned in the European Union. Alachlor is

I hope those who are FOR GMO and monsanto, love eating that chemical sh*. This is one minor case amongst many cases of Monsanto and their destruction
to agriculture, farmers, and human health through ingestion. As I have stated in my previous thread, I am %110 AGAINST anything GMO.
Humans have been farming for thousands and thousands of years, with no problems. The only reason we have sick, starving, and dying people today on
earth, is because corperations like Monsanto rather use millions and millions of dolars for altering nature, and forcing masses to eat fake food or
die hungry.. The billion-dollar corperation could be using that money to feed the sick and sttarvingHEALTHY ORGANIC food, but that wouldnt be much of
a profit or conttrol would it? The queen would rather sit in a chair made of diamonds and gold, instead of feed the people in need.
Anyone arguing that GMO is needed for more yield, for theh sick and for the 'bugs' eating the crop.. Are just making useless arguments. People have
been healthy and fed for thousands of years, battling bugs and the such. We dont need more yield we need more FARMERS, organic and natural growing
farms. The sick dont need fake-genetically altered food, they could use a share of those billions of dollars that goto waste on profit and control.
There is too much research to be done when it coems to GMO, which is why most people dont even care; but in the long term (more then a 90 day
experiment), people wil have more and more health issues, and birth defects will raise in America and GMO-ran countries. That is a personal 'guess'.
GMO Soy linked to birth defects?
Russian biologist Alexey V. Surov and his team fed three generations of hamsters varying diets (one without soy, one with non-GM soy, one with GMO
soy, and the final with higher amounts of GMO soy). By the third generation, the pups from the fourth group suffered a high mortality rate and most of
the adults were infertile or sterile.
Earlier in 2010, Surov co-authored a paper in Doklady Biological Sciences, recording the incidence of hair growing in recessed pouches in the
mouths of hamsters, most prominently in those of third-generation hamsters fed GM soy. “This pathology may be exacerbated by elements of the food
that are absent in natural food, such as genetically modified (GM) ingredients (GM soybean or maize meal) or contaminants (pesticides, mycotoxins,
heavy metals, etc.)
Just five years earlier, Irina Ermakova (also with the Russian National Academy of Sciences) noted in her study that within three weeks, over half of
the babies from mother rats fed GM soy died—over five times the mortality rate in the non-GMO soy control group. The pups from the GM group
were also smaller. Later, Ermakova fed all the rats in her laboratory a GM soy diet. Two months later, the infant mortality rate reached 55 percent.
The testicles of male rats fed a GM diet, where once pink, turned blue.
Hear that boys?! Blue balls :O
But seriously, there are countless reasons I do not trust Monsanto or any bio-tech company. Nature is PERFECT. That is the truth. Nature CREATED YOU!
Your planet, your star, your galaxy, the E-N-T-I-R-E UNIVERSE. I put more faith in that, then some greedy-profit corperation looking to control the
masses via agriculture.
Fight for your right to eat natural food! GMO labels is least important; we have dumb-ass lab rats, poking needles into genetics of FOOD, because they
get a nice pay cheque.. Its not worth the destruction. Anyone who oppose Monsanto, will find themselves threatend or in court. They are bullies, and
want nothing more then CONTROL. They're behavior is nasty, driven by greed and cold hearts.
Those who are for GMO, go eat it
I live an organic lifestyle, Im a vegetarian, and an athelete. Im confident I will out live any of you GMO
consumers. In my entire lifespan thus far, I have never been injured, never visited a doctor. I take care of my body, because it is my LIFE in this
'reality'. I wont shove just anything into it.
For those against Monsanto and GMO, Im proud you fight for what is real. We have one gift in this world; that is our bodies and mind, I take care of
both. We all should
