Evil Monsanto

Dark History of the Evil Monsanto Corporation

click here to see Monsanto's History TIMELINE

Monsanto is the world's leading producer of the herbicide “Roundup", as well as producing
90% of the world's genetically modified (GMO) seeds.
Over Monsanto's 110-year history (1901-2011), Monsanto Co (MON.N), the world's largest  
seed company, has evolved from primarily an industrial chemical concern into a pure
agricultural products company. MON profited $2 billion dollars in 2009, but their record
 profits fell to only $1 billion in 2010 after activists exposed Monsanto for doing terribly
evil acts like suing good farmers and feeding uranium to pregnant women. Below is a
timeline of Monsanto's dark history.
Monsanto, best know today for its agricultural biotechnology GMO products, has a long
and dirty history of polluting this country and others with some of the most toxic compounds
known to humankind. From PCBs to Agent Orange to Roundup, we have many reasons to
question the motives of this evil corporation that claims to be working to reduce environmental
destruction and feed the world with its genetically engineered GMO food crops. Monsanto has
been repeatedly fined and ruled against for, among many things: mislabeling containers of Roundup,
failing to report health data to EPA, plus chemical spills and improper chemical deposition.
The name Monsanto has since, for many around the world, come to symbolize the greed, arrogance,
scandal and hardball business practices of many multinational corporations. A couple of historical
factoids not generally known: Monsanto was heavily involved during WWII in the creation of the
first nuclear bomb for the Manhattan Project via its facilities in Dayton Ohio and called the
Dayton Project headed by Charlie Thomas, Director of Monsanto's Central Research Department
(and later Monsanto President) and it operated a nuclear facility for the federal government in
Miamisburg, also in Ohio, called the Mound Project until the 80s.
