A Deadly Union: Monsanto and Bayer’s Lethal Legacy

BAYER’S ROLE IN THE HOLOCAUST

During his address to The Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal in 1946, Chief Prosecutor Telford Taylor declared that “These companies, not the lunatic Nazi fanatics, are the main war criminals. If the guilt of these criminals is not brought to daylight and if they are not punished, they will pose a much greater threat to the future peace of the world than Hitler if he were still alive.”

Monsanto and the Poisonous Cartel of GMOs in India

The Farben family chemical cartel was responsible for exterminating people in concentration camps. It embodies a century of ecocide and genocide, carried out in the name of scientific experimentation and innovation. Today, the poison cartel is wearing G-Engineering clothes and citing the mantra of “innovation” ad nauseam. Hitler’s concentration camps were an “innovation” in killing; and almost a century later, the Farben family is carrying out the same extermination—silently, globally and efficiently.

OCM Declares State of Emergency in American Agriculture Following Vilsack Statement

“In an affront to logic and to any clear thinking by family farmers and consumers, Vilsack continues to push a model of highly concentrated industrial agriculture that has failed. One only needs to look at our home state of Iowa to see the resulting loss of family farms and environmental destruction,” according to Iowa farmer and OCM board member Chris Petersen.

Professor Dr Marc Cohen Chemicals Are Killing Us Interview

Medical practitioner and RMIT University Health Sciences Professor Dr Marc Cohen says a massive overload of chemicals in our food and environment is killing most people before their time.

He says while chemicals can be toxic, they can also be extremely addictive and profitable.
"Our global society has become addicted to cheap, readily available fossil fuel and the 120,000 commercial chemicals derived from it," Professor Cohen said.
"Chemical industries currently run the world with a handful of big oil, agriculture, pharma and food companies controlling the majority of the world's energy, food, health and security.
"Our widespread use and dependence on industrial chemicals has contaminated the entire biosphere including our own bodies."

Professor Cohen said the world's most comprehensive environmental chemical biomonitoring study was the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey conducted by the Center for Disease Control in the United States.

"The most recent report examined 212 chemicals and found chemicals such as PBDEs and BPA in nearly all participants tested," he said.

"This study also confirmed previous reports suggesting that children bear the brunt of the toxic burden, with children being found to be more toxic than adolescents, who are in turn more toxic than adults.

"Children are not just little adults; they have higher food, fluid and air intake per kilogram of body weight and a higher metabolic rate and higher absorption of toxins than adults, as well as having immature detoxification and immune systems, developing organ systems and a longer latency period in which to develop chronic disease."

Michigan Loses ‘Right To Farm’ This Week: A Farewell To Backyard Chickens and Beekeepers

The Michigan Farm Bureau endorsed the new regulatory changes. Matthew Kapp, government relations specialist with Michigan Farm Bureau, told MLive that the members weighed in and felt that people raising livestock need to conform to local zoning ordinances. The Farm Bureau did not feel Michigan’s Right To Farm Act was meant to protect the smaller farms, and ultimately the Michigan Commission of Agriculture and Rural Development agreed.

Monsanto Seeds Unleash Unintended Consequences Across U.S. Farms

Part one of the plan is done. The seeds are in the market. The second part is not -- and that’s a big problem. Some farmers growing the new seeds seem to be enjoying the sense of invincibility it’s given them. Despite state and federal prohibitions, they’ve taken to spraying dicamba, and the stuff has been drifting all over the U.S. heartland. For folks like Landon Hayes, who grows earlier-generation soybeans in Campbell, Missouri, the consequences have been costly. He says 500 acres of his crops were damaged this summer by stray wisps of dicamba. And now he feels compelled to buy the engineered Monsanto seeds to avoid injury next season.

Sweet Deal? Sugar Industry Blamed Fat In Fake Studies

“These internal documents show that the Sugar Research Foundation initiated coronary heart disease research in 1965 to protect market share and that its first project, a literature review, was published in the New English Journal of Medicine without disclosure of the sugar industry’s funding or role,” stated the study.

The internal sugar industry documents were found in public archives by a researcher at the University of California, San Francisco.
The sugar industry paid Harvard researchers in the 1960s to bury research linking sugar intake to heart disease and to instead make fat the culprit, according to a study of archival documents.
