  • Monsanto is among the scariest entities that reside on this planet. The only thing that's even scarier than Monsanto is the fact that so few people actually know and care about Monsanto.

    • No, I've been informed on this stuff, I just don't think it's a big deal.

  • Yes and I freaking hate it!!! It is super scary and the amount of pull they are seeming to have over Government is beyond worry some. How would you like to have to pay them to grow your own produce in the back of your house because their seeds 'spread'. What bull!

    • They are trying to control the food supply.
      "​The US Supreme Court upheld biotech giant Monsanto’s claims on genetically-engineered seed patents and the company’s ability to sue farmers whose fields are inadvertently contaminated with Monsanto materials."
      Also @dudeman it's not the same.

    • Exactly!

  • Monsanto is the mega-corporation that produces the herbicide Roundup, which the World Health Organization has recently classified as a "probable carcinogen." I believe Roundup is banned in EU (or it's been proposed for banning), but Monsanto is appealing that. Monsanto also supplies GMO seeds which of course are genetically engineered to withstand huge doses of Roundup. (See how that works?) Monsanto is also proposing to merge with another major agri-chem corporation (Bayer?) but a lot of people are against that.

    • It has been proposed in the EU, but never settled.

  • I live right by one of their buildings. I haven't died of toxic chems yet. That being said, i do not support them.
    They are not for the people, they do not have peoples well being in mind. I do not know much beyond that other than the fact that they put farmers out of business.

    • they dont put any farmers out of business. anything you heard about that was actually a lie.

    • @dudeman Definitely not a lie

    • @dudeman Normally i can take you credibly but if you're not willing to provide me with information i can't find then i stand by what i said, and its ultimately all for naught. good day

  • Get an education! Learn Chemistry, Biology, Ecology, and come back, then, KNOWING facts, not just some BS media hype!!
    However you view Monsanto, they have saved Millions of lives, and that is probably their downfall, because now we are overpopulating the planet, and depleting the resources!!
    Maybe they should have just let millions of children die, rather than create drought-resistant food crops, or pest-resistant crops, to feed all these extra mouths.
    Why do people just go after some little thing, hyped up by the media, without ANY understanding of the BIG PICTURE?
    Sorry if this is a little HARSH, but people are so quick to jump on some media-sponsored BS, without questioning, without asking why, how, or I need to know more!!
    Be the SMART one, and do the research, read all the things about it, and focus on the PEER-REVIEWED SCIENTIFIC JOURNALS, not some BS website by some stay-at-home mom that saw some news blurb, and is starting an unfounded crusade!!!

    • I do my research, triggered buddy.
      Yes they have made it easier to make more food than we could ever imagine before, but at a high cost.
      Also, explain e951, e952 and e621?

    • Already done it! BS in Biology, minor in chemistry. Working in the food industry. Sorry, but catch up with me in a few more years when you know some facts, and can distinguish between media hype, and reality.
      I don't mean to be mean to you, but you are so young, so naive. There are more REAL Crusades to fight, than this one.
      My whatever gods you pray to bless you and keep you safe! Sorry we couldn't agree on anything. . .

    • Triggered boi?
      Just because you're older doesn't mean you're right. I think I should change my age to 30 then.
      You work in the industry yourself making yourself think all that happens there is okay. It's understandable, but it doesn't mean the same to others ;) cool story bro, my stephdad works for Abott, I do not watch tv nor do I read news from news agencies. You generalize the people against chemical compounds. Checkmate bud.

  • They own the rights to the seeds for most of the fruits and vegetables we consume and they genetically modify them for various purposes.

    I'm indifferent.

  • It's like quantum in James Bond except instead of water they own all the food crop seeds. I actually don't think that it's an intentionally evil thing though, it's a business and they came out on top in that industry. Isn't that what capitalism is all about? Do you really want the government to control which companies can succeed and to what extent? Also they aren't the only seed company because my mom buys heirloom seeds for her garden and we actually have lots of non gmo seeds stored.

    So I get that some people are worried about them controlling all the food supply but in all fairness someone has to front the technology and provide seeds for farmers. Would you rather an independent company have that power? Or the government?
