The Great American Lie
Monsanto invented the herbicide glyphosate and brought it to market under the trade name Roundup in 1974, after DDT was banned.
By 2013, Monsanto’s n
et income rose to $1.48 billion thanks to our friends, neighbors and every farmer that uses this dangerous cellular poison.
Unfortunately, not everyone is aware of “The Great American Lie” ~Monsanto calls “Roundup”.
The Short Story
Today, Roundup (ie; “Glyphosate”) is the most widely used herbicide in the world. Over 130 countries currently permit extensive use of this toxic chemical. The US is the largest consumer, using approximately 20% of the world’s Roundup.
The latest reliable figures from the US Geological Survey record 280 million pounds of Roundup were used in 2012, making the US the largest consumer. It’s startling to think that America has used a pound for every American, each year, for the last 4 years.
This much… without our permission, no one asked us if this was ok..!
The EPA continues to align itself with Monsanto’s safety claims and limits concerns about Roundup’s risks, allowing Monsanto to continue dodging scientific research.
Meanwhile Monsanto has known for decades that Roundup (ie; glyphosate) is one of the most toxic substances ever launched on the public. Further, that it is known to adversely affect almost every tissue and cell in a mammal’s body. That’s you, that’s me and your little doggie to folks.
The question is, can Monsanto be charged with crimes of omission and more deservingly crimes against humanity? ~The answer YES!
The case has a precedent and has been played out in the courts before. In November 1998, the US government won a judgment against the four largest US tobacco companies: Philip Morris, RJ Reynolds, Brown & Williamson, and Lorillard. Up next, Monsanto.

Roundup and Your Health
Following, a few words from; Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman a law firm representing clients who have been exposed to Monsanto Roundup [glyphosate] herbicide and have been diagnosed with various types of cancer.
Alexis Baden-Mayer, of the Organic Consumers Association also has a lot to say about your health and Roundup. Your NOT going to like it.
Click here for the full article. But let’s look at the highlights shall we?
Let’s start with this chilling statement:
“Monsanto’s ingenious marketing strategy… Genetically engineer seeds to grow food crops that could tolerate high doses of Roundup —farmers could now easily control weeds —crops that thrived while the weeds around them were wiped out —from 1996 –to– 2011, the widespread use of Roundup in the U.S. by increased 527 million pounds, falsely advertising it as environmentally friendly and biodegradable.“
The half-life of Roundup in soil ranges between 2 and 197 days; a typical field half-life of 47 days has been suggested. Soil and climate conditions affect glyphosate’s persistence in soil. Roundup adsorption to soil, and later release from soil, varies depending on the kind of soil.
A 2009 study using a RoundUp formulation concluded absorption into plants delays subsequent soil degradation and can increase Roundup persistence in soil from 2 to 6 times.
1993 EPA study showing that glyphosate (Roundup) half-life can persist in agricultural soil for over four months.
Some herbicides labeled Roundup also contain other herbicides roundup.com/smg/goprod/roundup-concentrate-poison-ivy-killer/… (2% Triclopyr 18% Glyphosate) Triclopyr has a soil half life of 30 to 90 days
“..it’s unsafe to handle soil, or eat foods that have been in contact with Roundup in the last 2-3 years.
Income – Cost = Profit
If the “Monsanto Lie” is new to you, then first, your going to have to open your mind a bit and grasp the idea that major US corporations actually care more about profit than whether consumers will live to buy the product for a second or third generation.
A second concept you must grasp, mega-corporations make enough money, that the cost of a lawsuit, or a government imposed fine, is simply a “line item cost” carried across as an expense against mega-profits.
Consider the following headline:
Now perhaps, can you grasp that your life and your health and the laws that you think protect you, are less than 1% of the profit based decisions that shape our world today.
This means, the decision to proceed with a project is not swayed by the legal or moral implications, it is determined by the profit margin, “after considering” cost of litigation and possible fines.
Is There a Conspiracy?
Let’s add a tangent that you really won’t like. Here’s some articles that you should read:

This Topic is Well Documented
Frankly, there is so much information about this matter on the Internet. Real news stories, official research reports, studies, etc. It’s just not practical for us to spend the time writing more.
So what follows is a list of articles you can read for yourself.
Or, you can save time… just get Roundup out of your life now:

Seeds of Death
This video/movie is over an hour, but will open your eyes to what may very well be the end of our world… the Monsanto / GMO conspiracy… We regret to inform you that President Barack Obama has signed H.R. 933, which contained the Monsanto Protection Act, into law.
Please, DO NOT take our word for it. Do your own research. Please MAKE A POINT TO PROVE THIS MATERIAL WRONG. Then, you win.
You can even post your proof below and beat your chest with your wins. We’re cool with that. Won’t change our position, but perhaps you will make other reader keep in line, making Monsanto richer and the rest of us less healthy?
