Monsanto is a massive corporation that once produced Agent Orange and PCBS
but now produces herbicides, and GMOs - from corn, wheat, soybeans, and even pigs
GMOs, like those created by Monsanto, are dangerous because of the way they change our environment
and Monsanto's herbicides, such as RoundUp, may cause potential health risks
to plants, animals, and people alike. An interview with the researcher who reported on these herbicides can be seen here
Monsanto's GM patents make it illegal for farmers to replant the seed from the former year's crop
(a practice down for thousands of years) on the grounds of patent infringement. What this also means is that if a non-GMO crop is somehow altered, naturally, by the Monsanto GMO crops, Monsanto now owns the rights to those seeds as well - making them unplantable the next year.
These practices and more
make Monsanto a shady corporation worthy of avoiding.
