I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and cause me to tremble for safety of my country; corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in High Places will follow, and the Money Power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the People, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic destroyed. – Abraham Lincoln
What Mr. Lincoln didn’t know then, is that the economy would become a world economy, and the wealth could very well be aggregated over the world, into the few hands. Monsanto is a FOOD giant, and a leader in the biotech industry. They have lived their corporate career spinning their media coverage in their favor, and by so doing they have come out looking like missionaries. Forging new paths into lands unexplored, bringing food and water, and seed to soil.
The only problem is that every culture that is gifted with the presence of Monsanto, becomes enslaved to them, and eventually loses their health to them. Paraguay and Argentina are two such countries that have found their waters polluted, and their economic markets puppet-ed by Monsanto via their pesticide manufacturing and their dominance of the land market. They have moved into such countries and bought massive amounts of farmland, and turned that land into the home for many Genetically Modified Soy Plants. Genetic modification is really a baby to this company, nurtured and loved.
“Swapping genes between organisms can produce unknown toxic effects and allergies that are most likely to affect children.”

Mercola.com has a recent article that goes into details regarding the concerns over GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) food, and it’s risks with children. These risks appear to be much higher with children. AND every product that you buy with soy in it, UNLESS it specifically says NON-GMO FOODS, contains GMO Soy!
Back to the third world country that have been literally taken over by Monsanto; disease and morbidity rates have risen since the introduction of this biotech giant into the local farming communities of these countries. Biotech. I am sure you have heard the term. If not in a local paper or periodical, you have likely heard it mentioned by wall street analysts. Biotech companies are utilizing technology, to integrate with biology, to find ways to grow “better” foods, or manufacture “better” drugs.
One thing that is for sure, is that these products are typically engineered from their original natural state, into a genetically modified plant, or plant/animal based product. I have a lot against these companies, but the simplest explanation will do.
These companies will constantly hide behind the ideal of helping billions of needy people on the planet, yet when they pollute the water supply of those people, or destroy their economics by controlling their farmland. They don’t care about the damage that they have left.
So why would they care about feeding them, if they don’t care about displacing them? Money, it is all about the money. And when it is ALL about the money, it is always insincere and bad. I dislike Monsanto with all my heart, please watch out for the next step that will only introduce more garbage food into the American diet!
