Monsanto. A company that puts weed killer into the very DNA of our food and then claims that it is safe as cancers and other dire fallout occurs from its use. We have countless studies that show how deadly the chemical is and yet we keep seeing genetically modified food hitting our store shelves. Soon after, many of us are hitting the hospital bed with incurable diseases as a result.
MSN News reports that dicamba is currently the Monsanto monstrosity that some farmers (who care more about the bottom line than the health of the nation who they feed) are begging for. This chemical is nothing short of toxic, but as long as it keeps bugs away, certain farmers seem only too happy to put everyone’s life at risk in order to profit.
“Farmers need it desperately,” whined Perry Galloway.
Perhaps he is just not a very good farmer then. After all, countless organic foods are grown, distributed, and sold that have no such toxins included every day.
It was only last year that “Monsanto began selling soy and cotton seeds genetically modified to tolerate the herbicide,” so it is not as if the statements of Galloway can be true.
A far more prudent farmer named Shawn Peebles has said, “If I get dicamba on (my products), I can’t sell anything.” Palmer, amaranth and pigweed can be defeated by means that don’t put the lives of everyone unlucky to consume it!
Dicamba “vaporizes easily and is carried by the wind, often spreading to nearby farm fields” and poisons farms that were caring and skillful enough to use the deadly toxin. Thankfully, authorities in Arkanasa banned the product but this has some farmers outraged.
“Dicamba has affected my whole family,” confessed Kerin Hawkins in a voice that is said to be “trembling.” Her husband died after confronting another farmer about the use of the poison.
“This is not just a dicamba issue, this is not just a Monsanto issue, this is about how we as human beings treat other people,” said the grieving wife.
“I lost $500,000 in honey production and $200,000 worth of pollination contracts to California farms due to the poor health of my beehives,” said beekeeper Richard Coy. The bee die-off that we have seen is starting to affect us all and that is hurting the whole health of the Earth. Monsanto is to blame for much of it.
Some people are calling for a compromise allowing dicamba to be used once, but what logic is found therein? Should we take a spoonful of bleach or eat a few fentanyl tablets only once, or are they deadly? If they are deadly then they are not to be used AT ALL.
After all, there is no such thing as having “a little bit” of cancer.
