List of Monsanto owned companies:

The latest HR 1599 bill, dubbed the Monsanto Protection Act, or the Dark Act, will strip states of the right to pass GMO labeling laws that would allow the public to know what is really in their food.

meme4The company has a checkered past and now reigns as one of the most hated companies in America, with hilarious yet appropriate Monsanto memes doing the rounds online.

Founded in 1901, Monsanto started out as a chemical company producing someone of the most toxic substances around including Dioxin, controversial hormones and cancer-causing Aspartame.

In the 1980’s, Monsanto scaled back chemical and plastics manufacturing and invested its efforts into biogenetic research. They rebranded as an agriculture business, creating genetically modified organisms.

Many Americans hadn’t even heard of Monsanto until it tried to start exporting its genetically modified organism seeds and the United Kingdom.

meme2Britain was battling with Mad Cow disease, and while the government reassured the population that there was no risk to humans, people started dying. The GMO seeds were approved by the European Union, but the British became suspicious of the GMO seeds and pushed back.

We can’t be sure of the genetic make up of food created with GMO seeds. This has become an increasingly concerning fact as Monsanto starts to dominate the produce industry in the United States.

Monsanto has now acquired Seminis for $1.4 billion, which controls 40% of the market for fruits and vegetables in America. Monsanto’s seeds now account for an estimated 90% of America’s soybean production.

meme1Monsanto thinks its GMO seeds are future proofing crops and providing sustainable food production for future generations.

But many detest to its activities, with even Prince Charles, a supporter or organic farming processes, weighing in on the debacle. Prince Charles stated that genetic engineering and modification “takes mankind into realms that belong to God, and only God.”
