Bayer has just purchased Monsanto for 62.5 billion dollars, cementing one of the most unholy business marriages of all time. The two companies are equally yoked with a history of evil and self-serving business practices are concerned, and it’s important for the public to know what this massive business merger means.

The Bride

Monsanto is the company that is responsible for creating and marketing products like genetically modified BT corn (corn plants with built-in pesticide genes spliced into their DNA) and “Round-up ready” GMOs—plants that are engineered to resist the herbicide Roundup so that fields can be saturated with chemicals that kill weeds, but not the modified crops. Rather than increase crop yields as promised, GMOs have increased the use of herbicides and caused an alarming outbreak of herbicide-resistant “superweeds”.

 
Despite claims to the contrary, glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup) has been shown to cause cancer and other illnesses. GMO crops in India and Central America have caused a deadly epidemic of kidney disease in those countries, and health in America has plummeted alongside the rise of GMO products.

Monsanto has become well-known as a company that falsifies documents, lies to the public, strong-arms farms and businesses into buying their products, and covers up wrongdoing. They have been sued many times, and are currently facing a very large lawsuit involving thousands of people with claims that they have cancer caused by Monsanto’s “safe” herbicides.

The Groom

Bayer has been a household name for generations, but many people are unaware of its sordid history. This company began in Germany under the name of I.G. Farben. In lawsuits, I.G. Farben has been accused of crimes against humanity during World War II—when the effectiveness of their pharmaceuticals was tested on Jewish people who were kidnapped, enslaved, or purchased to use as “human guinea pigs”.

Bayer admits to using slave labor, although it has done its best to minimalize its connection to I.G. Farben. And it’s no wonder they would rather people be unaware of their roots—I.G. Farben was the company that developed  Zyklon B…the poisonous gas used to kill millions of Jews in gas chambers during WWII.

A Match Made in Hell

Monsanto has its own ugly little toxic secret: Agent Orange. Monsanto created this chemical for use in warfare during the Vietnam war, and it was sprayed in large amounts (some 12 million gallons) to kill foliage in South Vietnam. Although not meant to be a toxin to humans, Monsanto’s product proved to be a powerful teratogen—sickening millions and causing horrific birth defects that continue to be a problem even in the children and grandchildren of those exposed. Many children in Vietnam today lie dying in orphanages due to disabilities caused by the toxin, and in America veterans of the Vietnam war and their descendants suffer from a long list of hundreds of health problems associated with Agent Orange exposure.

These two massive companies deserve to be tried for crimes against humanity, rather than be allowed to team up. By distancing themselves from their histories and covering up their wrongdoing, they have managed to continue to do billions of dollars of business despite the damage they’ve done to society.

Bayer has announced that once the purchase is complete, the name “Monsanto” will disappear. In this way, I.G. Farben and Monsanto will quietly blend into one “family” name…and Bayer will hide two companies with a horrible history. They will continue to benefit from their terrible past, building on a history of building a financial empire by taking advantage of the very people they claim to help—and then refusing to take responsibility for the damages they do.

An Uncertain Future for the Rest of Us

This new union will come with a special bonus: Monsanto is facing a huge number of serious lawsuits in the near future that could do real damage to the company. Now, they will have the added money and corporate backing of Bayer—and, with a name change, the hope that the public will soon forget who is responsible for the tainting of our entire food chain and the epidemic of autoimmune illness that is sickening people at unheard of rates.


This union will close a perfect vicious cycle that Monsanto alone couldn’t quite complete: Monsanto’s GMOs require Monsanto’s herbicides to grow; Monsanto’s herbicides cause resistant weeds that require more herbicides to eradicate; these herbicides cause diseases in everyone who consumes GMO products. Now, Bayer’s drugs can be prescribed for the ailments that Monsanto’s products cause—keeping the cycle of toxic chemicals and high-priced drugs all in the same family.

The losers in all of this? Clearly, everyone but Monsanto and Bayer.

By allowing this to take place, the Department of Justice has created the world’s largest seed and chemical company—a company that will control 77% of all seed corn and 58-97% of all cotton, soybean, and canola markets. This promises to be more expensive for farmers and to make it much more difficult for the public to have choices as to how their food is grown.
 
Please, share this article and let others know what is happening. If the public is aware of the merger, they will know to watch Bayer carefully and to take the steps needed to be informed about where their food is coming from and who is benefitting from it.

10 Genetically Modified Foods to Avoid

Jeff Hays

GMOs pose a health risk to consumers and are dangerous to the environment, and as the public becomes aware of this problem there is a growing concern about how to avoid them. In the years since GMOs first made their way into the marketplace, it’s become harder and harder to know where they are hiding—in fact, 70 percent or more of the foods you’ll find in the grocery store are made with GMO ingredients. Labeling laws do not currently require disclosure of these ingredients, so it’s important to know what foods to avoid.





Here are 10 Genetically Modified Foods to Avoid:
1. Aspartame. This artificial sweetener is known to cause cancer and is a neurotoxin. On top of that, the chemical is entirely laboratory-created. It’s best to avoid all foods containing aspartame.

2. Corn, and anything that contains corn products. This includes corn syrup and corn starch, as well as corn oil. In the United States, close to 90% of the corn grown is genetically modified. Corn syrup finds its way into many processed foods, including some that you wouldn’t expect (like yogurt and ketchup). Look for labels that are marked “non-GMO” or certified organic.

3. Soy. This is another sneaky ingredient that hides in a lot of processed foods, in the form of “soy lecithin.” Soy is also found in hydrogenated oils and emulsifiers, and because the soy crops are 93% genetically modified it should be assumed that unless it’s marked otherwise, it’s not safe. Look for products that don’t list soy as an allergen, or that are marked organic and non-GMO.

4. Cottonseed oil. Cotton grown in the US is 94 percent genetically modified. While you might think that this would mostly apply to clothing, many processed foods contain cottonseed oil. Besides being a GMO, cottonseed oil has other problems—it should not be used for cooking, as it is an unhealthy polyunsaturated fat and has been associated with a risk of heart disease. Use a healthier option like avocado or olive oil—as a general rule, if it’s not something you’d ordinarily eat, it shouldn’t be made into oil.


5. Canola Oil. As with cottonseed oil, this oil is made from something that is not ordinarily eaten—rapeseed. It’s also a 90% genetically modified crop, and it shares cottonseed oil’s unhealthy effects on your body.

6. Sugar. Sadly, the average American consumes 66 pounds of sugar each year! Half of the sugar we buy comes from sugar beets, which are 90% genetically modified. Look for organic unbleached cane sugar or coconut sugar instead, and consider using less sugar in general.

7. Infant formula. You would think that a product developed for babies would be required to live up to high standards, but baby formula is often full of corn syrup—particularly “gentle” formula meant for infants with digestive problems. Some lactose-free formulas are made with both corn syrup solids and sucrose, which means that 40% of the calories in baby’s bottle are coming from glucose. When breastfeeding isn’t an option, organic baby formulas are a better choice.


8. Beef. Cows are meant to eat grass, with their four stomachs specifically designed for that purpose. Unfortunately, most of the cattle that end up in the grocery store are raised on corn instead—which causes the animals to be seriously ill, making constant antibiotics a necessity. The corn fed to feedlot cows is almost all genetically modified, which means that both the GMOs and the antibiotics make their way onto your plate. Avoid this by choosing grass-fed, antibiotic free meats.

9. Milk. Like beef, most milk comes from cows who are being fed genetically modified corn. Organic, grass-fed dairy products are worth the extra cost in protecting your family from GMOs, hormones, and antibiotics.

10. Papaya (from Hawaii). It might surprise you that papaya can be genetically modified, but Hawaiian-grown papaya often is. The fruit is genetically engineered to contain DNA from the ringspot virus. Unfortunately, cross-pollination caused the modified papaya to spread, making it difficult to find non-GMO fruit on the island. Specifically, avoid Rainbow papayas and look for Kapoho or Royal Star varieties instead.

Avoiding these foods will help keep your diet GMO-free. In addition, cutting out foods that contain genetically modified ingredients will improve your overall health, since GMOs are present in most products that are highly processed or contain other ingredients that are not good for you.

 
Best,
