Everyone is dumping from insiders to hedge funds.
Get out while they still have some borrowed cash left to prop this up!
Getting out above a hundred is a gift.
Do not waste your gift.

Keep writing those letters to anyone and everyone that runs any kind of fund you are involved with at any level.Remind them of their fiduciary duty and the huge risk they take with the savings of so many for such a small reward yet such high risk for holding Monsanto.Be polite and truthful and ask if he is sleeping OK at night.Tell him to divest so you may finally be able to sleep.Tell him you are counting on him.
Many funds are completely divesting so keep up the good work! Thank those that did!
If you are talking about California than Monsanto cannot even pay the intelligent farmers to use their seeds.Talk among good farmers is to use drought resistant Non-GMO and untreated heirloom seeds for the best crop and most profit.Anyone stupid enough to use toxic seeds will probably not last another season.
In March, 2015, 17 experts from
11 countries met at the International
Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC;
Lyon, France) to assess the carcino-
genicity of Glyphosate.
These assessments will be
published as volume 112 of the IARC
WHO/FAO. Glyphosate residues in
food Joint FAO/WHO Meeting on
Pesticides Residues. Part II Toxicological. IPCS/
Better exit like many hedge funds are doing before this hits the major news wires!
When volume 112 is released it may be too late!
I myself predict bankruptcy!

According to evidence unearthed from the archives of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) in the United States, it has been established that Monsanto was fully aware of the potential of glyphosate to cause cancer in mammals as long ago as 1981.
Two of these reports relate to a three-generation reproduction study in rats (6) (7), and another is called “A Lifetime Feeding Study Of Glyphosate In Rats” (8); but like all the other older studies they were and still are treated as Trade Secrets and cannot be freely accessed for independent scrutiny. That in itself is suggestive that the studies contain data which Monsanto still does not wish to be examined by experts in the toxicology field. It is also deeply worrying that EPA acceded to the routine Monsanto requests for secrecy on the flimsiest of pretexts.
Get yourself a Litigation Lawyer if you are suffering from cancer!
Monsanto faces huge risk as other states follow Vermont's lead by requiring food companies to tell consumers which products on grocers' shelves contain their genetically modified ingredients.
Even more risk with the World Health Organization declaring that Glyphosate as causing cancer?
Just what financial institutions are loaning huge cash to a company about to go belly up?
What Insurance Companies will pay liability claims?
It is so sad that the taxpayer will get stuck with most of the bills eventually!
Lets hope that all the criminals get fair trials and long prison sentences in maximum security penitentiaries!
Lobbyist tells the world that Monsanto herbicide is safe enough to drink, then refuses to drink it! Jonathan Matthews reports
In the wake of the World Health Organization's designation of the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide as a "probable carcinogen", the French investigative journalist and film maker Paul Moreira has released a sensational video of an interview with the high-profile GMO advocate Patrick Moore.
In the film, Moore first assures Moreira that you can drink a whole quart of glyphosate without suffering any harm and then refuses to drink it, telling the film maker, "I'm not an idiot."
The film shows the terrible damage done in Argentina over the last 15 years by the use of increasingly large and uncontrolled amounts of agrochemicals in the GMO soy-growing areas. The documentary notes the explosion of illnesses, including cancer, among those living in the areas where the Roundup Ready crop is being cultivated.
Monsanto has denied that health problems in Argentina are caused by its pesticides, insisting that its products are safe. It rejects an AP report that it is to blame for an increase in cancer rates and birth defects.
Between 1930 and 1949, Johns-Manville (once the largest manufacturer of asbestos in the United States) conducted studies on its employees to find out just how damaging asbestos was to their health. One internal, suppressed study in 1949, found that out of 780 asbestos workers, 534 had lung changes.
Johns-Manville was one of many asbestos companies that knew about the dangers of asbestos and kept the information secret. An internal memo at Exxon (another company that worked in asbestos) shows that they not only had knowledge of the hazards their workers were facing, but they knew they were also breaking the law in the process.
Asbestos companies were able to continue concealing information. It takes anywhere from ten to fifty years for asbestos to cause these illnesses. If your father or grandparents wanted to file a lawsuit against the company, he would need to prove that his illness was caused by the asbestos he came in contact with fifty years ago. With so much time having passed, it was extremely difficult to prove this.
Monsanto Co. announced its largest stock buyback plan.
The company intends to finance the $10 billion of repurchases over two years with debt. That will shift its capital structure from a net cash balance to net debt of 1.5 times earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization by the end of August 2015, St. Louis-based Monsanto said in a statement.
I expect Monsanto stock to crash after they have no more borrowed money left to hold it up with this impending toxic cancer causing glyphospate disaster unfolding!
do you also recommend anyone doing shift work, or drinking coffee contact a lawyer ?
Absolutely they should contact a Attorney if they were also exposed to toxic glyphosate and they are now suffering terribly with cancer!
The International Agency for Research on Cancer, a cancer research arm of the World Health Organization, on Friday announced that glyphosate as a probable cancer-causing agent.
I strongly suggest that anyone suffering from cancer that has had any contact with this cancer causing agent contact a Lawyer for legal advice on how to get compensated for your pain and suffering plus also ask for punitive damages and all other costs involved.
If you are related to someone who died from cancer caused by this toxic agent you may also have a claim!
That way those loving and wanting their gmo's drenched in glyphosate can more easily find them and those like me wanting no part of them can finally avoid them!
Glyphosate (Roundup) is one of the most toxic herbicides, and is the third most commonly reported cause of pesticide related illness among agricultural workers. Products containing glyphosate also contain other compounds, which can be toxic. Glyphosate is technically extremely difficult to measure in environmental samples, which means that data is often lacking on residue levels in food and the environment, and existent data may not be reliable.
Glyphosate is found in weed killers and may cause cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, nerve, and respiratory damage.

A recent study by eminent oncologists Dr. Leonard Hardell and Dr. Mikael Eriksson of Sweden, has revealed clear links between one of the world’s biggest selling herbicide, glyphosate (commonly known as Roundup, marketed by Monsanto), to non-Hodgkins lymphoma, a form of cancer - NHL. There are even requests for permits for higher residues on genetically engineered foods because they are highly resistant to herbicides, instead of reducing herbicide use, glyphosate resistant crops may result in increased residues. They are already on sale. Farmers knowing that their crop will tolerate or resist being killed off by the herbicides will tend to use them more liberally. There have been no risk/benefit analysis carried out, so the regulatory authorities have failed to implement the precautionary principle with respect to GMOs.
The Women’s Cancer Resource Center (WCRC) and CHOSE (Coalition for a Healthy Oakland School Environment), showed that chemicals such as Round-Up (glyphosate) can result in reproductive damage as well as damage to the kidney and liver, and some studies show a link between the chemical and cancer.
1. Garden Mum
This plant was found by NASA to be a real air-purifying beast. It removes ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, and xylene from your home’s air. It’s popular and inexpensive, plus they can be planted outside too.
2. Spider Plant
Spider plants are incredibly easy to grow, so if you’re a beginner, this is a great one to start with. It lights bright, indirect light and sends out shoots with flowers on them that will eventually grow into baby spider plants that you can propagate yourself. Before too long, you’ll have more spider plants than you’ll know what to do with.
There are over 40 kinds of dracaena plants, which makes it easy to find the right one for you. They remove benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, and xylene from the air. They are toxic to cats and dogs though, so if you have pets, you might want to think twice about this one.
Ficus trees are a favorite of mine as they are able to grow quite large depending on the type of pot you have them in. They typically stand between 2 and 10 feet tall and have some serious air cleaning abilities. You can also keep it outside in the spring and summer. The ficus removes benzene, trichloroethylene and formaldehyde from indoor air.
5. Peace Lily
Not only does the peace lily send up beautiful flowers, but they’re impossible to kill and have great air cleaning abilities. They flower through most of the summer and prefer shady spots with moist but not soggy soil. It removes ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene.
6. Boston fern.
This plant likes cool locations with high humidity and indirect light. Bathrooms are a perfect spot for these little friends. They remove pollutants like xylene and formaldehyde from indoor air.
7. Snake Plant/Mother-in-law’s Tongue.
I see this one all over the place in offices and restaurants – and for good reason. They’re pretty much impossible to kill. They need water only occasionally and prefer drier conditions. They don’t need much direc
Yikes all this for the cheap laminate! What about the expensive solid and engineered flooring is it OK ?
