Is the end of Monsanto within reach? It has certainly been a rough couple of weeks for the mega corporation as the real dangers surrounding GMOs are being brought to the attention of consumers on a global scale like never before. It all started with the monumental French study finding a serious link between the consumption of Monsanto’s Roundup-drenched GMOs and massive tumors. Being called the ‘most thorough’ research ever published on the real health effects of GMOs, the study led to even larger victories.

After the study not only did France call for a potential worldwide ban on GMOs pending the results of their in-depth analysis, but Russia’s major consumer rights organization announced a ban on both the importation and use of Monsanto’s GMO corn.

Prop 37 Can Label Monsanto Out of Existence

And now, the Proposition to label all GMOs in the state of California is showing massive success. If Prop 37 passes, it won’t just affect California. It is very likely that other states will not just take note, but adopt similar legislation. Through this legal mechanism, we can essential label Monsanto out of existence.  This is possible when considering that the average consumer is actually opposed to GMOs and heavily in favor of proper labeling.

In a major Los Angeles Times poll, registered California voters in favor of labeling outnumber pro-GMO voters by more than a 2-to-1 margin. Altogether, a whopping 61% of those polled reported supporting the Prop 37 labeling initiative. Only 25% reported opposing it.

If GMO-containing products are properly labeled, the simple fact of the matter is that less people will buy them. As of right now, very few people are even aware of what they are putting in their mouth. In fact, if the public knew that they were consuming GMOs which were linked to massive tumors and organ failure, the overwhelming majority would abandon such products. Without labeling, however, they have no idea. The same can also be said for other ingredients like high-fructose corn syrup and aspartame.

As Yes on 37 campaign manager Gary Ruskin explains:

“Monsanto, DuPont, and Coca-Cola do not want Californians to know what’s really in their food and drinks, because they fear consumers will turn away from their genetically engineered ingredients and pesticides that go with them.”

If they knew they were eating mercury in the HFCS and consuming an artificial sweetener with over 42 associated diseases, then major change would occur – change that includes forcing manufacturers to abandon these ingredients in order to stay profitable. And after all, Monsanto’s number one goal is profit. This is a company that has been caught running ‘slave-like’ working conditions in which ‘employees’ were forced to buy only from the company store and were not allowed to leave the area or their pay would be withheld.

If Monsanto’s profits were to plummet, their political reign would likely follow as well. Without an endless amount of cash to throw at crushing Prop 37, already contributing $4 million to fuel anti-labeling propaganda in California, the corporation’s massive grasp on the world of science (continually censoring studies and funding pro-GM research) and politics would virtually cease to exist.

It is essential that we ensure the passing of Prop 37 in a bid to generate the literal end of Monsanto. Once consumers actually know that they’re putting genetically modified creations into their body, real change will occur within the food supply.

    I sure hope this will be the beginning of the end of Monsanto and GMO in general. Their (Monsanto) influence is enormous at universities and by extension (government) advisory bodies.

    Please view for free, through at least end of October, a movie about Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs): http://www.geneticroulettemovie.com After viewing the movie, please ask others to also view it. Next, please visit carighttoknow.org where you can view more information about Genetically Engineered or Modified Organisms. Finally, please vote yes on Proposition 37 if you vote in California, or please help the campaign as suggested at that site. Thank you.

    Labeling makes sense . If one is concerned , one should insist upon it at the stores they patronize .

    Customers can thus see the relative costs of GMO versus traditional hybrid foods , as they can now see the comparative costs of traditional versus "organic" foods , and decide the relative value for themselves .

    Truly, it is up to the individual to enlighten themselves. Those who continue down the same comfortable path with soon find a rude awakening in the middle of the road.

    Depending on the government for anything is like asking a thief to watch your house & feed your dog while you go on a mindless vacation.

    Doesn't matter what legislation is passed; remember, those who write it are on the take too. Survival skills are key. The shit is going to hit fan…and soon. Be ready.

    Learn how to grow your own food.

    Learn how to detoxify the rain.

    Learn how to make shelter.

    Learn how to function undivided by the bullshit of political & religion divisions.

    Learn how to survive in the wild.

    Knowledge is the only true source of power and you don't have much time left to acquire it. Start now. Because that's exactly what this place will be when the shit does hit the fan; the wild.

    The company I worked for over 30 yrs. was in Kansas moved to Texas, was welding equipment manufacturing. Few yrs back we received stickers we had to start putting on our products that said something about this metal, plastic or whatever it was, was known to cause cancer in California studies. People laughed, like they used to laugh at germa-phobs.

    Just saying- people don't know this stuff everywhere.

    Good. Out the door with Monsanto. Now, what can be done with Fluoride? Just as dangerous yet has the patient/community betrayals of the health and dental TRADE organizations. They are interested in money for their members..not fewer cavities in children.

  • Jimmy Russels

    There are still apologists out there who defend Monsanto and GMOs. These useful idiots want to stay ignorant to the fact that they are poisoning themselves and their children. How do I convince them of the danger? Providing scientific evidence does not seem to help, and these are people who have been to university…

  • Aschwin Wesselius

    I just had to think about the BP oilspill not so long ago. What Monsanto does to the environment of the world is much, much, much worse than the oilspill of BP. But where's the media?

    And for the shareholders of Monsanto: there should be a thought before buying any share in any company: is this company worth growing? And for Monsanto and it's history there is no excuse for buying any share at anytime after their Agent Orange era. You simply don't want any part of it to be associated with Monsanto. People who have shares in Monsanto are greedy and are hypocrites.

    Sadly, I feel they will get out of this unscathed, the bad guys seem to always get off scot-free.

  • Katie

    They wont give up so easily, they will hit back by re-naming ingredients and changing something and bring it back as a new safe product. That happened recently with CC, they had to put cancer warnings on the bottles so now they changed something(i dont know what) now all of a sudden they dont have to change the labeling???

    • Melton

      Isn't it sick?

    Monsanto should be done for Genocide of a Bio-weapon product which is what its purpose really was!! Monsanto should be dismantled, the owners and shareholders prosecuted and imprisoned with all their assets taken off them with a 50 Trillion dollar

    lawsuit. If the company runs out of money, the Banksters that own it will have to use their own money to pay the lawsuit to all organic farmers around the world!!! GMOs were designed as a depopulation tool! And as such, the death penalty must be carried out on those at the top of this vile agenda.

    • Adrian

      You sir are retarded because by including the shareholders you are inadvertently including probably millions of Americans since many Americans own Monsanto in their mutual funds and retirement funds and are therefore inadvertent shareholders. You need to think really hard before opening your stupid mouth and making the rest of Americans look bad. Go back to living off the grid and stop posting on the internet.

        Is a shareholder upset?

      • KJ

        I think you are the only one making yourself look bad. An uneducated person like yourself can't speak for the rest of America, so therefore you should be careful making such ridiculous claims.
