Monsanto has released evidence of corporate corruption on a massive scale.

Newly released internal Monsanto documents are creating tremendous controversy outside the United States (cause it isn’t being reported here), providing fresh fuel for a heated global debate over whether or not the agricultural chemical giant suppressed information about the potential dangers of its Roundup herbicide and relied on U.S. regulators for help.

More than seventy-five documents, including discussions about payments to scientists, were posted for public viewing early Tuesday morning by attorneys who are suing Monsanto on behalf of people alleging Roundup caused them or their family members to become ill with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. The attorneys posted the documents, which total more than 700 pages, on the website for the law firm Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman, one of many firms representing thousands of plaintiffs who are pursuing claims against Monsanto.

When reached for comment, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., one of the plaintiffs’ lawyers said, “This trove marks a turning point in Monsanto’s corporate life. They show Monsanto executives colluding with corrupted EPA officials to manipulate and bury scientific data to kill studies when preliminary data threatened Monsanto’s commercial ambitions, bribing scientists and ghostwriting their publications, and purchasing peer review to conceal information about Roundup’s carcinogenicity, its toxicity, its rapid absorption by the human body, and its horrendous risks to public health and the environment.”

Monsanto and US Government Corruption


How completely corrupt is the US government? It’s been corrupted by big money for decades, and this corruption has put our lives at risk.

According to Ecowatch,

“Monsanto and officials within the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are fighting legal efforts aimed at exploring Monsanto’s level of influence over regulatory assessments of the key chemical in the company’s Roundup herbicide, new federal court filings show.

The revelations are contained in a series of filings made within the last few days in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California as part of litigation brought by more than 50 people who are suing Monsanto. The plaintiffs claim they or their loved ones developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma after exposure to Roundup herbicide, and that Monsanto has spent decades covering up the chemical’s cancer risks.”

Numerous other diseases have been linked to Monsanto’s Roundup, as well as their GMO products.

Last week, the World Health Organization (WHO) listed the GMO herbicide as a possible cause of cancer. There are numerous studies that show Glyphosate causes all sorts of human maladies, such as autism, cancer, obesity and many other things. Check out the video below to discover more about these studies.

Your government is putting corporate profits over your health for a simple reason. The more medical problems you get from GMOs, the more hospital profits go up. For profit making hospitals, this is a win-win situation, and your government is a willing partner is this crime.

Dr Mercola has studied this issue for years and he writes, “Increasing exposure to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, may be at least partially to blame for rising rates of numerous chronic diseases in Westernized societies, according to recent research.

The finding, published in Entropy,1 has ramifications for virtually every man, woman and child in developed nations, as this pesticide is widely used on both conventional and, especially, genetically modified (GM) crops (to the tune of more than one billion pounds sprayed in the US alone).

If you eat processed foods, most of which are made with GM corn and soy ingredients, you’re consuming glyphosate residues, probably in each and every bite. Knowing this, and the fact that tests show people in 18 countries across Europe already have glyphosate in their bodies,2 the following news should leave you very, very concerned… if not compelled to take action against this health-endangering chemical.

The wealthy CEO’s and shareholders of Monsanto are transforming your health into record profits for the 1 percent. Your ill health is now a for profit commodity. And the government of the United States is a well bought partner in this scam.

President Obama and Wall Street Senator’s Ron Wyden, Mitch McConnell, Orrin Hatch and most everybody else in the US Senate that is a Republican want to continue to transform your good health into Monsanto profits via the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the largest “international income, political and health of the 99 percent redistribution to the 1 percent agreement” of all time.

One of the leaked provisions of this scam is to eliminate your voting rights on the state and local levels when it comes health, safety and labeling issues. Monsanto is a key adviser to the negotiators. The question really is, why is the US government so corrupt that dozens of senators support this scam?
