The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has purchased 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock. Monsanto is the world’s largest producer of genetically modified food, which has been tied to numerous health ailments such as sterility and infant mortality.

Bill Gates Foundation Buys 500,000 Shares of Monsanto

AGRA Watch has issued a press release on the subject:

Monsanto has already negatively impacted agriculture in African countries. For example, in South Africa in 2009, Monsanto’s genetically modified maize failed to produce kernels and hundreds of farmers were devastated. According to Mariam Mayet, environmental attorney and director of the Africa Centre for Biosafety in Johannesburg, some farmers suffered up to an 80% crop failure. While Monsanto compensated the large-scale farmers to whom it directly sold the faulty product, it gave nothing to the small-scale farmers to whom it had handed out free sachets of seeds. “When the economic power of Gates is coupled with the irresponsibility of Monsanto, the outlook for African smallholders is not very promising,” said Mayet.

Monsanto’s aggressive patenting practices have also monopolized control over seed in ways that deny farmers control over their own harvest, going so far as to sue-and bankrupt-farmers for “patent infringement.” Monsanto was declared company of the year by Forbes magazine in 2009, despite its history of agricultural abuses. Monsanto has also been accused of dumping toxic waste in residential areas, resulting in a variety of severe health disorders.

    I’m very happy to uncover this website. I wanted to thank you for ones time due to this wonderful read!! I definitely appreciated every part of it and I have you saved to fav to look at new information on your website.

    If we research a little we will see that this "stress of the planet" we speak of can be easily solved if we stop following people like Bill Gates who say the only way to solve it is through eugenics. And that's another thing: does it make sense to you that Bill is talking about eugenics and population control all the time, yet he wants to save the people in Africa from all the harmful diseases that will kill them? That doesn't make logical sense, does it? Which is it: you want to save the people, or get rid of them?!?!

    One of my cousin asked me to try Bull Smoke e cigs, as well as ever
    since, I am glued to it. I love the various
    varieties in flavors supplied, and also, the convenience of not really depending on typical cigs whenever you like to ease off your worries.

    Right On Ellen! You must have read Sherri Tenpenny's book….. Fowl!

  • Bill Gates Hasn&#039

    There are dozens of more effective ways Gates could have put his billions to good use! GMO foods, and more Vaccines are the last thing we need on this planet! He really took the easy way out…! He's joining up with the aleady all powerful demonic forces of Monsanto & Big Pharma who are only interested in bottom line margins….! No real challenge there at all! Bill has been put to asleep from getting his ego stroked 24/7!

    Hey Bill, how about improving the S.A.D. if you really want to help the people by launching off some truly organic GMO free farms that supply local resturants all over the US. This would vastly improve the S.A.D and reduce illness on a major scale. But no sir, instead your buying tons of shares from some diobolical company called Monsanto who holds the patent on cancer causing toxins like Aspartame which is responsible for 75% of all food supplements conplaints to the FDA aka Fraud & Death Association.

    Come on man, wake up! You too Linda…your both hanging out with the elites in La La Land! You can do better than that as true pioneers again who go against the grain….not with it!

  • http://robinengel.com Robin engel

    Dear Bill & Melinda, I think you two are amazing. Please tell me why you bought Monsanto shares? Tell me it's so that you can change the way they do things. Please. They are anathema to sustainability and healthy living and so much more. They are the enemy. Do you not see this? I hope you do and can do something about it. Thank you.

    • Reggie

      I think Gates' time-proven talents are less about actual philanthropy, and more about developing and marketing proprietary technology.

      So I'm sure it's all just about money – and that Gates wants to get in on the Biotech boom just as he did with the personal computer boom.

  • Mike

    PROOF of Bill Gate's agenda: “The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” A quote by Bill Gates at a recent Ted conference. Here's the link where you can watch and listen to him say it out of his own mouth: http://tv.naturalnews.com/v.asp?v=A155D113455FAC8

    • kim

      Thanks Mike, your comment was a real eye-opener for me. Took me a while after reading the quote you gave by Bill Gates to figure out what was wrong with it but when the penny finally dropped so did my jaw!!

    I noticed the Natural Society website is rated by my WOT plug-in for Firefox as a 'yellow'. Anyone else getting the same 'caution' ratings on their browsers? Is someone trying to stuff the ballot box on 'safe site' ratings? Just wondering aloud (but I wouldn't put it past those goons to try a stunt like that.)

  • FDA Is Worthless…

    Hay, Circus Boy

    We both agree P. Correctness is responsible in large part for the ruination of this country! But it should be clear that Bill Gates actions alone prove his intellect gets in the way of his common sence regarding any issue about nutrition! He is amazingly clueless about proper diet like many brilliant people of his ilk are! I will give Gates his due for his Microsoft contribution! But leave it there Bill, please I beg you!

    The very fact that his foundation is willing to spend $10 billion in Africa on vaccines alone says everything about his depth of understanding and who he is in bed with. Big Pharma must love him for that one!There is no conspiracy here!I agree That's bunk!It's really more about Ego & Power for the rich! The only conspiracy, is to make as much money as possible regardless of the effect it has on humanity!The Monsanto's of the world(THE REAL FOOD NAZIS) already have the FDA, CDC, FTC, etc. so wired, that they can do just about anything they want too. Corruption in those Gov. agencies is why we are becomingone of the most sickly people on the planet aside from the UK!

    FDA Sucks… BTW: Bk Rec: Sherry Tenpenny's "Foul" < for all you vaccine lovers! In her book it says: French scientist Loui Pasture who invented the Vaccine confessed on his death bed he was wrong! His quote "The germ is nothing the terraine is everything"!….!

      Monsanto may be using Bill Gates to garner support from deluded people, but, Bill Gates and the Gates family are tied to Eugenics.

      Bills father was a co-founder of Planned Parenthood, which was once called the American Birth Control League. Margaret Sanger a close friend of the gates family and integral member of PP, was a fervent racist who lobbied governments to forcefully sterilize those considered to be 'feeble minded', in which category she placed the entirety of dark skinned human beings. Its no wonder then that the eugenic organization known as planned parenthood, which was founded and run by racists/eugenicists was used to kill and sterilize black people and anyone else they considered 'feeble minded'.

      Bill also has a sorted past in the vaccine industry, specifically in Africa. Black women and girls were unknowingly sterilized while getting vaccines funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

      I could go on, but just those two tidbits of information should peak your curiosity enough to look into the Gates Foundation in serious detail for yourself.

      • Adam

        Follow up:

        There is also the controversial funding of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, which should either tip you off that something is a miss with his investment in Monsanto (ie. he thinks they could ruin the world with genetics and believes this vault is necessary) OR he was ensuring the survival of these seeds because he planned to invest in Monsanto and knew that a healthy stock of the worlds seeds was the best financial investment you could make for the future, if you planned to buy into corporate biotech/gmo.

    • billy bathgates

      good bloke ??? bill gates has always sucked, why does anyone think he is any good? He's a freaking convicted monopolist who corporaped his way to billions. there is evidence of stealing other people ideas again and again, or buying competition out to destroy them.

      read the archives of the usenet group alt.fan.bill-gates for plenty on bill gates — from the 1980s!

    We complain about the drug companies, yet most all of America is supporting drug companies through doctor prescribed drugs. The drugs are from hell itself and how many are taking prescribed drugs. Find a natural and safe alternative and STOP empowering these drug companies by buying their toxic death potions just because you ignorantly imagine your doctor knows anything about health. He is trained by drug companies and does not even learn about nutrition. OUR BODIES do not have a drug deficiency. Stop taking the toxic death vaccines as well. The drug companies control vaccines as well. DON”T TRUST THEM. Why do you think a whole nations cancer rate increased? The common denominator? VACCINES. You can’t blame foods when infants have cancer, tumors and leukemias. IT is VACCINES. Wake up and stop buying drugs.

    The danger for a lot of the world population, Is that this GMO'S technology can be used to make plants like Corn or Soybean, or bacteria or algae, to produce any chemical or virus that can really damage or affect us, in a big way and little by little (time) that can really affect a lot of people, seems like these plants can do anything the 1% wants, and will affect the 99%, can you see this. A product developed by the 1%, for the 99%, they don't even use it, they eat organic. This could be a Weapon for mass destruction.

    I think We need to force and make the FDA, USDA, Health departments get together and really make a protocol (rules and laws) approve and to really test proof the safety of using all the GMO'S that are been produced. stop the insanity.

  • Eileen

    Maybe, just maybe, he will try to change it from within. His foundation HAS done some good work, and the intentions are good. Maybe his influence can change them to be responsible. Maybe not, but it's a different perspective.

  • Natalie

    Please watch this documentary about GMOs and how the crops are deficient in nutrients, some as much as 80%. Also the animals which are fed GMOs are becoming impotent and having far more miscarriages. Dr. Mercola interviews a scientist, Dr. Huber, who researches GMOs and this is what he has to say about it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4swW9OFmf8&fb
    There are 2 parts to the video.

  • circusbouy

    The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have given more money and jobs to people around the world than most countries have ever contributed! The word retard is a word that has been used to describe people forever… Not everyone believes in all this liberal political correctness crap…Get over it..

  • jenelle

    GMO foods are the easiest form of population control. Its already happening to thoughtless people in this country and worldwide. Bill Gates is part of the world's elite that want the population to be reduced ASAP. If you don't understand how GMOs and population control works, then you should read the book, "Seeds of deception" to understand what they are. Once you understand how they are the lowest grade of food, and are being pushed on people all over the world, then you can see the conection between GMOs and people dying. Until the mainstream understands that toxins = cancers, and toxins = disease, we are going to continue to be screwed over by them.

    • Jood

      The 1%…ridding the 99%. Read about it everyday.

      I live it everyday. Brainwashed doctor gave me the

      toxic antibiotic CIPRO for poison ivy. I can read up

      about it everyday thanks to Big Pharma making me

      bed-ridden for 4 years. Google CIPRO side effects.

      GMO`s, hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, fluoride

      and let`s not forget…no health care.

      I`m as good as dead. OH, well that`s their whole point! DUH.

Be ready to be shocked it is a long list of crimes against people and the environment !

    • jenelle

      Wow, you are totally in the dark. Why else would they have given 30 billion dollars to population control organizations. You are a very naive person.

      • Anonymous

        There ARE too many people on the planet. 7 billion is way too much stress on our earth and there is no way to naturally feed that many people.

        I have issues with Bill Gates for other reasons, but supporting populational control is one of the smart things he's doing.

        What is wrong with wanting to reduce the population down to a sustainable number? One where people don't have to starve or go without clean drinking water?

        • Another Anonymous

          Who, exactly, gets to decide which of those 7 billion should be done away with? And are you willing for you and your family to be among those to be gotten rid of to help ease the "stress on our earth"? Or do you think you have more of a right to live than someone on the other side of the planet, hm?

        • bea41660

          Great! Will start with YOUR FAMILY. When can we start?

          See how this works? Easy huh.

          Then why isn't Gates investing in water filtration and desalination plants? Over 70% of this planet is covered in water that can be easily cleaned of salts and pollutants to make it drinkable. Why leave the water dirty and try to reduce population (ie: killing or sterilizing people) and instead make drug companies richer with 'vaccine equity' campaigns?

    Bill Gates is one of those Neocons otherwise he would not be supporting Monsanto.

    He is a supporter of these criminals Monsanto and their Ilk in creating Franken Food.

    I used to admire Bill Gates but that changed soon as I became aware he is not on the people's side.
