West Virginia Residents Deal With Monsanto’s Path of Destruction

How would you like to have a company who created a weed-killing herbicide and a biochemical weapon used to kill Asians making deals with your government to make genetically modified (GM) food sold in your local grocery store?

If this sounds like a winner and you’re okay with men who consume GM products consequently having lower testosterone and fertility levels, then Monsanto is the company for you.

The demons of Monsanto continue to be exposed. People are starting to understand the dark history of this company and more importantly, the United Sates corporation.

In addition to destroying male fertility, Monsanto’s Roundup is an extremely harmful herbicide (even in low doses) that can lead to DNA damage, birth defects, liver dysfunction and even cancer according to a recent study from the Journal of Toxicology in Vitro.

It really doesn’t make sense for any person to use Roundup or consume GM products unless you’re poor and cannot afford healthy products. It’s no wonder why the poor and uneducated are more susceptible to poor food choices which lead to bad health, cancer and other illnesses.

Also, it’s no coincidence that stores like Wal-Mart, which are placed in predominately low-income neighborhoods, willingly sell GM products. People need to eat and less affluent people will shop at Wal-Mart because of their low prices, but like anything in life, nothing is free. Cheap food comes at high cost. The cost is usually your health and can sometimes be your life.

Healthier food choices and proper education leads to a more conscious public which is why it is in the interest of politicians to keep states like Mississippi, Oklahoma, West Virginia and South Carolina in their current state of ignorance.

States like West Virginia are starting to wake up though. They’re beginning to understand that a corporate giant moving into your neighborhood under the guise of bringing more jobs may seem good in the short-term, but it is not without its repercussions.

Residents of Nitro, West Virginia are close to settling a class-action lawsuit against Monsanto who was stationed there from 1949-1971. Nitro is where Agent Orange was manufactured and eventually used on the Vietnamese.

Residents there spoke of the town having odd odors whenever they entered the town from the highway. They linked the smell to Monsanto and their inability to contain and properly dispose of dioxin and bi-products of herbicide 2,4,5-T over a two-decade span.

Residents claim this incompetence led to tens of thousands of residents being exposed to dangerous chemicals which allegedly led to high cancer rates.

Despite the plants having been shut down, some environmental activists say the area needs to labeled as dangerous and a proper cleaning of the town needs to happen.

Could Nitro be a new member of the United States’ infamous Superfund sites?

And if Monsanto is capable of committing such atrocities as it did with unborn Vietnamese children and this town in West Virginia, what won’t it do in the name of greed? It’s tough to tell, but genetically altering its crops to withstand large doses of pesticides then feeding those crops to an unaware public (Monsanto and similar companies refuse to label GM food in America) is a good way to see that this company will stop at nothing for power; Even if it means killing, poisoning and emasculating American men.

    1. They are no good! They are a corporation who got their start creating biological chemicals used in war. Now they want to engineer our food. This is real and this cannot be tolerated.

  1. I am in nitro right now. I asked at a gas station. Nobody seems to know about this some don’t even know Monsanto is. Sad.

  2. I don’t want engineered foods and won’t buy them. The people in Nitro moved there to be near the plant…it was their choice…now they want paid.
