Divest Monsanto Now!
As the manufacturer of Agent Orange, DDT, PCPs and dioxin, Monsanto’s toxic legacy of harm to the environment and human health is without parallel. Now Monsanto owns patents on life and is genetically engineering the food that we eat. In the past 2 years alone, Monsanto has helped fund massive misinformation campaigns to the tune of $70 million to defeat GMO labeling.
Monsanto claims that GMOs and their weedkiller Roundup are perfectly safe. So why are they fighting GMO labeling in the U.S.? Unfortunately, if you have a retirement fund, 401K or mutual funds you could be profiting from Monsanto’s toxic products.

Sacramento, CA — California just dealt Monsanto a blow as the state’s Environmental Protection Agency will now list glyphosate — the toxic main ingredient in the U.S.’ best-selling weedkiller, Roundup — as known to cause cancer.
Under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 — usually referred to as Proposition 65, its original name — chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm are required to be listed and published by the state. Chemicals also end up on the list if found to be carcinogenic by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) — a branch of the World Health Organization.
In March, the IARC released a report that found glyphosate to be a “probable carcinogen.”
Besides the “convincing evidence” the herbicide can cause cancer in lab animals, the report also found:
“Case-control studies of occupational exposure in the U.S.A., Canada, and Sweden reported increased risk for non-Hodgkin lymphoma that persisted after adjustments to other pesticides.”
According to wine growers on conventional farms, their family businesses were once able to harvest from their vines for 100 years. Now thanks to chemical farming, vines only last 10-12 years. Glyphosate is a chelator, which strips living things of their vital nutrients and minerals.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has deemed glyphosate a probable carcinogen. Even a small amount of the chemical has been shown to stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells. California Department of Health data shows the cancer rates in Sonoma, Napa, and Mendocino counties are 10-20% higher than the national average. Many lawsuits are currently pending against Monsanto concerning the link between non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and Roundup.
A study of piglets showed a repeated 30% increase in birth defects and stillbirths among pigs whose mothers were exposed to sow feed containing 0.87-1.13 ppm glyphosate in the first 40 days of pregnancy.
The co-formulants of Roundup have been found to be up to 1,000 times more toxic than glyphosate itself, and act as hormone disruptors which may cause breast cancer, miscarriages, birth defects, and numerous other health problems.
