Monsanto Company Message Board

    What is not to like about this company?

    I love to eat things that are genetically modified and things that have poison in them. Yummy! Please sir can I have another? Your friend and mine too...Monsanto!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • You got it right. GMO's are an improvement on Mother Nature, whose devil-like-ways destroys mankind (storms, diseases, plagues, starvation). GMO's are not poison, so I would stop eating poison (not very smart) Monsanto has saved all of us from the whims of Mother Nature.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • The crazy thing is - Monsanto's seed has produced products that we all eat - albeit unknowingly. They have no desire to label their foods. Their former execs are interwoven into our government. furthermore their genetically modified plants are pollinating organically grown crops at a distance of up to 500 miles. We live in a very sick country and this sham of a biotech is making the hospital's tons of money. They have bought out our (dancing with the stars) news coverage. We are getting sick and have the right to know what foods are making us sick. Look at how long the've planted their seed. There will be a direct correlation to tremendous rise in allergies and colon related illnesses. Wake up everyone!

        Sentiment: Sell

      • great sarcasm...I guess it is alright for some to post sarcastic biasd based fear mongering monsanto/gmo is the devil posts, but see equally vague counter post, and it is so insulting, oh so wrong.

        the orginal post about gmo is a poison so stupid....just so stupid (not calling the person stupid, just the post)

    • Independent research Rats fed GM potatoes had smaller livers, hearts, testicles and brains, damaged immune systems, showed structural changes in their white blood cells making them more vulnerable to infection and disease Thymus and spleen damage showed up; enlarged tissues, including the pancreas and intestines; and there were cases of liver atrophy as well as significant proliferation of stomach and intestines cells that could be a sign of greater future risk of cancer. Equally alarming, results showed up after 10 days of testing, and they persisted after 110 days that’s the human equivalent of 10 years.

      Consider corn varieties engineered to produce a pesticidal protein called Bt-toxin. Farmers use it in spray form. People exposed to the spray develop allergic-type symptoms, mice ingesting Bt had powerful immune responses and abnormal and excessive cell growth, and a growing number of human and livestock illnesses are linked to Bt crops.

      Results of animals fed GM foods – Independent studies showed stunted growth, impaired immune systems, bleeding stomachs, abnormal and potentially precancerous cell growth in the intestines, impaired blood cell development, misshaped cell structures in the liver, pancreas and testicles, altered gene expression and cell metabolism, liver and kidney lesions, partially atrophied livers, inflamed kidneys, less developed organs, reduced digestive enzymes, higher blood sugar, inflamed lung tissue, increased death rates and higher offspring mortality as well.

      Farmers have reported their pigs and cows fed GM corn became sterile, 71 shepherds said 25% of their sheep fed Bt cotton plants died, and other reports showed the same effects on cows, chickens, water buffaloes and horses. After GM soy was introduced in the UK, allergies from the product skyrocketed by 50%, and in the US in the 1980s, a GM food supplement killed dozens and left five to ten thousand others sick or disabled.

      All type GM foods, not just crops, carry risks. Milk

      • Let's think about what you are saying; 25% of the sheep feed BT plants died? Why would farmers continue to grow GMO crops if it where killing 25% of their animals, in essence destroying their bottom line. Farmers are a very smart bunch and that statement makes no sense!

        What GM supplement are you referring to? I'm a scientist and I've never heard of it.

        BTW did you know that BTs are widely used in organic agriculture, sounds like you are making a case for not eating organic.

      • if that was true in any kind of scientically significantly way Sally, there would be gov't and industry movements to get out of gmo.

        so reality counterdicts your opinion in this case

    • I just realized that there are no human shareholders of this company. Maybe vampires and like. Only people I see on the board here are bashers. Go figure. Besides, how could any shareholder defend a company like this? The world is a worse place to live in because of Monsanto. Thank you for your time.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
