This article was written by H. G. Wells and appeared in the September 26 issue of Natural News. I have included it since it could have relevance to the coming presidential elections.
“One year before Mitt Romney began working on the Bain & Company project to rebuild ‘Monsanto’ and cast their new image and focus on agriculture biotechnology, Congress passed a bill banning PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl), an odorless, tasteless, clear liquid known to cause cancer that was the ‘bread and butter’ of Monsanto’s profits.
Monsanto was already branded and plagued with the label of having created the ‘Agent Orange’ contaminated dioxins used in Vietnam. Now Monsanto would need a big save, financially and reputation-wise, so they could fool the public with their new image and a new ‘frontier,’ while secretly polluting and genetically modifying American agriculture with the new faceless poison known as Roundup.
Romney knew his first job at Bain was to propel an evil company that was on the brink of failure. He knew Monsanto’s previous reputation and about all the litigation. Romney also knew he would be rewarded financially in the biggest way if he could pull the whole thing off, and he did.
Romney changed Monsanto’s image over the years, from a scandal ridden chemical giant to a seemingly ‘prestigious’ Agri-business firm. (http://dprogram.net)
Fresh out of Harvard in 1977, Romney basically lead Monsanto down an unethical but highly lucrative path, helping sweep the PCB and dioxin scandals under the rug, since that negative public perception was crippling the company.
Romney and Bain recommended to Monsanto that they focus the business on genetically engineered crops and RoundUp, the massively profitable weed killer.
Monsanto finished developing and patenting the glyphosate molecule and has marketed Roundup ever since. (http://naturalsociety.com)”
The full article is at the link. Read it carefully. It is long and very interesting, and it contains many of the elements your need to consider if you plan to vote for Romney to be your president.
In addition, please note that glyphosate was written about in the March 3rd article on tests of Roundup by Ethan Huff of Natural News.
It was found that concentrations as low as one part per million of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, were able to cause impairment of the endrocrine disruption that reduced testosterone levels by thirty-five percent.
This concentration was thought to be exceptionally low and would be the level encountered during normal, day-to-day interactions with other rats in a living environment.
Therefore, it was concluded that at even this low level of concentration the reproductive function would be severely impaired or nonfunctional.
