Kent u Monsanto Al? Roundup Ready Soybeans (#GMO) Documentary by Marie-Monique Robin

Geschreven op 14-4-2013 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Biologisch Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Marie-Monique Robin, die al drie andere documentaires op haar naam heeft staan over biodiversiteit en patenten op leven, kwam daarbij steeds de naam Monsanto tegen en ging daarom op onderzoek uit naar het bedrijf zelf.

Roundup is een agrarische herbicide formule die krachtige, consequente onkruidbestrijding biedt. De verbeterde consistentie van bestrijding is bewezen op moeilijk te verwijderen onkruid zoals fluweelblad, lambsquarters, postelein, kochia en morningglory. Kortom Roundup vernietigd zo’n beetje alles. behalve natuurlijk genetisch gemodificeerde soja-bonen die heel goed tegen Roundup bestand blijken te zijn. Kijkt u even naar deze documentaire van Marie-Monique Robin en u weet alles wat u zou moeten weten over Monsanto, soja-bonen en genetische manipilatie (#GMO).

Overigens was Monsanto ook één van de belangrijkste producenten van het beruchte Agent Orange dat veelvuldig werd toegepast door de Amerikanen tijdens de oorlog in Vietnam.

After four years on the market, more farmers than ever are using Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans on their farms. Monsanto’s second-generation trait technology for soybeans has been planted on more than 50 million acres in its first four years on the market. In 2013, Monsanto expects 39 to 41 million soybean acres to be planted with the Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield trait. Source: Monsanto

You know who Monsanto is. Even if you don’t recognize the company name, you’ve come across some of its products: maybe you’ve used Roundup weed killer on your lawn or garden, you’ve heard about the debate over treating cows with the artificial growth hormone rBGH, you’re worried about unlabeled genetically engineered organisms in your food, or you’ve learned about the use of Agent Orange in the Vietnam War, maybe from family members, coworkers or friends who suffered the health consequences. These may not seem related, but they all are a major part of Monsanto’s legacy.

The agriculture and life sciences company that’s known today as Monsanto is only a recent development. Most of Monsanto’s history is steeped in heavy industrial chemical production — a legacy that is extremely at odds with the environmentally friendly, feed-the-world image that the company spends millions trying to convey. Read the Full Report (PDF).

The World According to Monsanto is a 2008 documentary film directed by Marie-Monique Robin. Originally released in French as Le monde selon Monsanto, the film is based on Robin’s three-year long investigation into the US agricultural giant Monsanto corporation’s practices around the world. The World According to Monsanto is also a book written by Marie-Monique Robin 2009 winner of the Rachel Carson Prize (a Norwegian prize for female environmentalists), the book was translated to many languages.

Unser täglich Gift” ein Dokumentarfilm von Marie-Monique Robin. In ihrem neuesten Werk untersucht die Erfolgsregisseurin des Films «Monsanto — mit Gift und Genen», Marie Monique Robin, was uns die Lebensmittelindustrie tagtäglich auftischt. Der jüngste Lebensmittelskandal um Dioxin in Eiern beweist wieder einmal mehr: um unsere Nahrung steht es schlecht. Antibiotika in Fleisch und Fisch, Pestizidrückstände in Obst und Gemüse, überall Farbstoffe, Weichmacher und Geschmacksverstärker. Unsere Lebensmittel sind vollgepumpt mit chemischen Zusatzstoffen.

    Italy to Ban Monsanto GMO Corn with 80% Public Support

    First India gives Monsanto a run for their ill-gotten money by refusing their patent applications, and now Italy, with the help of three Italian ministries, will try to undo Monsanto.

    A decree has been signed which will ban Monsanto’s MON810 maize, one of the two genetically modified crops currently legally grown in Europe and sold commercially.

    The agricultural ministry rightfully addressed one of many problems with Monsanto’s GMO crops, stating that they have a ‘negative impact on biodiversity.’ The ban was also signed by the health and environment ministries. That makes three. Read more at: NaturalSociety

    Monsanto’s Fading Grasp – Group Calls on South Africa to Ban GMO Corn

    Following in the footsteps of nations like France and Russia, South Africa may soon be the latest nation to enact a ban on Monsanto’s GMO corn that was recently linked to tumor development and organ damage in rats. South Africa’s African Centre for Biosafety (ACB), a watchdog organization that was created to protect consumers from various biotechnology dangers, is now calling on South African authorities to enact a ban on Monsanto’s tumor-linked maize crop known as NK603.

    This is particularly important when it comes to South Africa as white corn is a large staple food, making up for 80% of the harvest just last year. In the event that the maize were to be banned, it would be a major hit for Monsanto and an even larger victory for the 50,586,757 people who live in South Africa. If authorities take the advice of ACB, then it would not only ban the cultivation of the GMO corn, but the import and export as well. In a letter to the South African minister of agriculture, the ACB said: “We urge the South African government to take the necessary steps to protect its citizens.” Read more at: NaturalSociety

    The #GMO Threat by Jeffrey M. Smith

    Smith documents how consumption of genetically modified foods has been directly linked with reproductive problems, immune system deficiencies, accelerated ageing, organ damage and gastrointestinal problems. The immune system problem has been seen consistently in mice and rats who are fed GMO food, explains Smith, and now since humans have started consuming genetically modified foods, auto-immune diseases and allergies have increased.

    Monsanto’s Cancer Milk

    FOX NEWS Reporters Steve Wilson & Jane Akre uncover that most of the milk in the USA and across some parts of the world is unfit to drink due to Monsanto’s POSILAC®, which has been proven to be a cancer-causing growth hormone, known in short as “BGH” “BST” or “rBGH”, but they were fired for trying to tell people the truth.

    Monsanto to drop all requests for new GM crops in EU

    US seed producer Monsanto has said it would withdraw all new requests to grow genetically modified crops in the EU. The move reflects its frustration over ongoing resistance to GM crops among populations in Europe.

    All approval requests for new types of genetically modified (GM) crops filed with the European Union would be stopped within the next few months, Monsanto President and Managing Director for Europe Jose Manuel Madero told British news agency Reuters on Wednesday July 17th.

    The Real Story Behind the ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ Signed by President Barack Obama

    Barack Obama’s signing of ‘The Monsanto Protection Act’, or H.R. 933 is really only small part of a much bigger pattern and corruption and collusion between Monsanto and the U.S. government.

    Lawsuit Monsanto5 Million Farmers Sue Monsanto for $7.7 Billion (6,6 Billion Euro)

    The reason? As with many other cases, such as the ones that led certain farming regions to be known as the ‘suicide belt’, Monsanto has been reportedly taxing the farmers to financial shambles with ridiculous royalty charges.

    The farmers state that Monsanto has been unfairly gathering exorbitant profits each year on a global scale from “renewal” seed harvests, which are crops planted using seed from the previous year’s harvest.

    The practice of using renewal seeds dates back to ancient times, but Monsanto seeks to collect massive royalties and put an end to the practice. Why? Because Monsanto owns the very patent to the genetically modified seed, and is charging the farmers not only for the original crops, but the later harvests as well. Eventually, the royalties compound and many farmers begin to struggle with even keeping their farm afloat. It is for this reason that India slammed Monsanto with groundbreaking ‘biopiracy’ charges in an effort to stop Monsanto from ‘patenting life’.

    Who are Monsanto and are they really evil?

    Monsanto were voted the most evil corporation in the world in 2011 by readers of Natural News – but why do they have such a bad reputation? We take a look at the history of the company, including Agent Orange and Polychlorine Biphenyls – or PCBs – right up to modern farming practices and genetically modified seeds, pesticides and crops

    Global awareness of Monsanto is at an all time high, and Monsanto’s GMO’s are now banned in at least 50 countries and increasing.

    De Monsanto methode by Zembla

    Wereldwijd proberen grote zaadbedrijven de macht over onze groente te krijgen. Zo zegt Monsanto, een Amerikaanse multinational, dat ze een broccoli hebben uitgevonden die makkelijker te oogsten is.

    Monsanto, producent van bestrijdingsmiddelen, genetisch gemodificeerde gewassen en ‘s werelds grootste zaadbedrijf wil de rechten van deze broccoli exclusief claimen, oftewel patenteren. Deze methode is omstreden, wetenschappers en politici maken zich zorgen. Wat betekent het voor onze voedselzekerheid als multinationals de baas worden over onze groente? Zembla onderzoekt de Monsanto methode.

    California Lists Key Ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup as Cancer-Causing

    California is officially adding glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, to the state’s list of chemicals and substances known to cause cancer.

    This is a landmark decision in the ongoing battle against Monsanto’s flagship weedkiller.

    Nederlandse Regering Wil Monsanto Groen Licht Geven voor Glyfosaat

    Ondanks alle inspanningen om glyfosaat te verbieden, is de Nederlandse regering toch van plan om Monsanto groen licht te geven om dit omstreden bestrijdingsmiddel weer tien jaar toe te staan.

    Glyfosaatresten worden gevonden in veel voedsel zoals brood, ontbijtgranen en pasta.

    Ook het maken van schoon drinkwater wordt door deze omstreden onkruidbestrijder ook steeds duurder en moeilijker.

    foodwatch is een e-mailactie gestart om de Nederlandse regering op te roepen glyfosaat niet langer toe te staan.

    Vind jij het ook onverteerbaar dat wij de komende tien jaar weer mogelijk glyfosaat op het menu hebben?

    Teken dan nu de e-mailactie!

    De Petitie “Maak Marktplaats gifvrij!”

    Dat het onkruidgif glyfosaat nog vijf jaar langer wordt toegelaten op de Europese velden, is knap balen. Maar: er zijn andere wegen!

    Een heel urgente: stop de verkoop van glyfosaat op Marktplaats, teken de petitie

    Glyfosaat zit in veel onkruidverdelgers (bijvoorbeeld Roundup) en is zeer giftig. Het doodt alle planten en bloemen waar het mee in aanraking komt. Daarna komt het in de grond en het oppervlaktewater terecht, waar het nog meer schade aanricht. Volgens onderzoek lijden zowel bodemdieren als waterdieren aan het gebruik van dit middel. Ook komt het in ons water terecht. Het middel wordt in verband gebracht met verschillende gezondheidsrisico’s, zo classificeerde de WHO het als mogelijk kankerverwekkend. Daarnaast heeft het gebruik van middelen als glyfosaat indirect negatieve gevolgen voor bijen en insecten, omdat het dus planten en bloemen doodt.

    Jury Finds Monsanto Liable in the First Roundup Cancer Trial

    In the first of many pending lawsuits to go to trial, a jury in San Francisco concluded on Aug. 10 that the plaintiff had developed cancer from exposure to Roundup, Monsanto’s widely used herbicide, and ordered the company to pay US$289 million in damages.

    The plaintiff, Dewayne Johnson, had used Roundup in his job as groundskeeper in a California school district. He later developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The jury awarded Johnson $39 million in compensatory damages to cover pain, suffering and medical bills due to negligence by Monsanto, plus an additional $250 million in punitive damages.

    This means the jury wanted to punish Monsanto because members believed the company deliberately withheld from the public scientific knowledge that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, was a cancer danger. The size of the damages awarded indicates that the jury was not persuaded by Monsanto’s expert witnesses.

    Product liability lawsuits are an important part of American culture. There are many examples of companies knowingly adding toxic agents to their products. So there must be a process for aggrieved individuals who have been harmed to hold these companies accountable.

    On the other hand, a lawsuit can be brought against any company for any reason, and some may be frivolous. It is an unfortunate comment on our health care system that so many people are uninsured, and if struck by a dreaded disease, must seek money to deal with it somehow from somewhere.

    In many instances it is simply unknown whether a product and its contents are a danger. This verdict is just the first in what could be a long legal battle over Roundup, and proving causality in such cases is not easy. But here are some observations from my own experience trying to help figure out why people get cancer.
