Monsanto Corp. has been secretly killing us all.

Agent Orange was Monsanto. Agent Orange is the code name for an herbicide and defoliant used by the U.S. military in its Herbicidal Warfare program during the Vietnam War. More than 21,000,000 US gallons (79,000,000 l) of Agent Orange were sprayed across South Vietnam. 4.8 million Vietnamese people were exposed to Agent Orange, resulting in 400,0...00 deaths and disabilities, and 500,000 children born with birth defects.
From 1961 to 1971, Agent Orange was by far the most widely used of the so-called "Rainbow Herbicides" employed in the herbicidal warfare program. During the production of Agent Orange (as well as Agents Purple, Pink, and Green) dioxins were produced as a contaminant, which have caused health problems for those exposed during the Vietnam War. Agents Blue and White were part of the same program but did not contain dioxins.

Monsanto not only endangers our health (by adding hormones to the cows they get milk from) but the environment too! Round up is from Monsanto and while it works well its very bad. It polluted a European country's drinking water and they had to stop using the pesticide.

Did you know Europe and Canada banned American MILK???? Why? Because of the hormones that cause cancer. The hormones also cause the cows udder to get swollen and infected from all the milking it gets. Then the farmer has to put antibiotics on the udder. The antibiotic residue and pus AND hormones get into our milk even though the milk is processed.

Letter to
U.S. House of Representatives

We, the undersigned, are deeply concerned about the direction Monsanto Company has taken in the past decade with respect to sustainable agriculture and farmers' rights.

Monsanto is responsible for nearly 100 deaths in India. Those farmers have been committing suicide! Don't believe me? If you have time look it up on youtube or a news website they have the facts and articles. Monsanto's seeds take over a farmers regular non-engineered seeds which causes the farmers seeds to stop growing unless they use Monsanto's products. BUT, even if they had the money to buy Monsanto's products it has been proven that Monsanto seeds do not produce NEARLY as much as organic seeds. These hardworking farmers are the backbone of our nation's food supply.

Did you know Europe and Canada banned American MILK???? Why? Because of the hormones that cause cancer. The hormones also cause the cows udder to get swollen and infected from all the milking it gets. Then the farmer has to put antibiotics on the udder. The antibiotic residue and pus AND hormones get into our milk even though the milk is processed.

The North American farm sector is becoming a veritable wasteland. Monsanto's Genetically Engineered crops have increased pesticide use, destroyed key export markets and threaten global food safety. Over 90% of American consumers want genetically engineered foods labeled, while 60% or more want GE-Free food for themselves and for their families.

Family farmers have the right to produce the safe, sustainable food without fear of intimidation and litigation. Consumers have the right to choose food that guarantees their families' health and safety. I demand that Monsanto change course by adopting the following practices:

1. Stop intimidating small family farmers
2. Stop force-feeding untested and unlabeled genetically engineered foods on consumers
3. Stop using billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money to subsidize genetically engineered crops- cotton, soybeans, corn, and canola.
4. Stop making their pesticides (such as Round-Up).
5. Stop injecting the Growth Bovine Hormone in their cows.
