Note: Much of my professional career has been in agriculture in the rural South. I can remember when ‘Roundup Ready Soybeans’ became available in the late 1990s. One of the agricultural specialists I worked with encouraged some of his farmers to use the roundup ready soybean, which was supposed to control weeds. It was a disaster! Within the next 2 years he realized the roundup was dramatically and negatively impacting the soil. Also, he realized that the overall soy crop production itself was reduced and he discouraged his farmers from using the roundup ready soy altogether.
In addition, we began to witness, throughout the South, that nature was prevailing with the development of “super” weeds that could withstand the roundup. Clearly, the Monsanto scientists either did not care about or did not consider the response of the natural world, much less of the derogatory health issues of humans eating this contaminated soy. These scientists, and many other scientists as well, appear to be singularly focused without considering the outcome or potential derogatory impact of their product.
George Washington Carver
An important history lesson of the natural (non-roundup ready) soybean is from the great George Washington Carver at Tuskegee University in Alabama.
In the early 1900’s southern agricultural system, the cotton crop was always noted as ‘king,’ of all other endeavors! Yes, ‘King Cotton’! Carver, during this period, addressed the issue of the cotton production’s negative impact on the soil. He noted, from his research, that this could be addressed by crop rotation. Many will say that Carver ‘saved the South’ by recognizing that a rotation of, for example, planting soybeans in fields after the cotton crop will fix nitrogen in the soil and therefore make the soil more fertile for the next cotton crop. It worked!!!
In 1904, the famous American chemist, George Washington Carver (pictured right) discovered that soybeans are a valuable source of protein and oil. He also realized the benefits of soybeans for preserving good quality soil. Mr. Carver encouraged cotton farmers to “rotate” their crops in a three-year plan so that peanuts, soybeans, sweet potatoes or other plants would replenish the soil with nitrogen and minerals for two seasons, and then the third year farmers planted cotton. To the surprise of many farmers, this produced a far better cotton crop than they had seen for many years!
The roundup ready soybeans destroyed this important rotation system. In the early 2000s, in concurrence with my agricultural specialist colleague, I also began to hear that scientists were suggesting that the roundup soybean was not fixing nitrogen in the soil and/or was negatively impacting the soil altogether.
First, about “Roundup” from the article “Damaging Effects of Roundup (and its active ingredient glyphosate)”:
Glyphosate was patented by Monsanto as the active ingredient in their Roundup brand. Monsanto also introduced genetically modified (GM) “Roundup Ready” (RR) soy, corn, cotton, canola, sugar beets, and alfalfa-all designed to withstand Roundup’s normally deadly effect. (Institute for Responsible Technology)
Secondly, about Roundup glyphosate’s impact from the article “Glyphosate and GM crops are harming no-till soils”:
Dobberstein adds that Cornell University researchers have found that beneficial Pseudomonas in the soil – bacteria which produce plant-stimulating hormones to promote plant growth and antifungals to defeat problematic fungi such as Pythium and Fusarium – decreased when the glyphosate seeped into the surface soil layer by leaching or release from glyphosate-treated plants. Fusarium produces toxins that can seriously harm livestock or humans that eat crops infected with it.
Kremer told attendees at the National No-Tillage Conference earlier this year, “This is all supported by research. I’m not just making this up. With that amount of glyphosate out there, it’s beginning to raise some eyebrows and people are wondering what else might be happening with this amount of chemical in the environment.”

We have also ultimately learned, as referred to in the article below, that the roundup ready soybean is damaging to human health. Rather than ‘saving the South’ this ’roundup ready soybean’, as mentioned, has been negatively impacting both our environment and human health.
Successful lawsuit against Monsanto/Bayer? Finally, and thankfully, some justice against uncontrolled, irresponsible and immoral greed by this company!

Monsanto / Bayer faces financial annihilation after third court loss, $2 billion in damages stemming from residential use of Roundup (glyphosate) weed killer
Tuesday, May 14, 2019
by: Mike Adams
(Natural News) Monsanto was acquired last June by Bayer, a chemical corporation whose chairperson was found guilty of crimes against humanity during the post-Nazi-era Nuremberg trials. Bayer was complicit in the chemical experimentation on Jews and the carrying out of the Holocaust, it turns out.
In the decades that followed, Bayer (formerly IG Farben) found a way to turn its deadly chemical weapons into pesticides, herbicides, chemotherapy drugs and pharmaceuticals. Instead of murdering people for the Third Reich, the corporation found a way to murder people for profit. Its acquisition of Monsanto cemented Bayer’s dominance in the agriculture sector, allowing the company to earn tens of billions of dollars a year by poisoning the global food supply with a deadly, cancer-causing chemical known as glyphosate – sold as “Roundup” under the Monsanto brand name.
Now, a third court case has ruled that Monsanto’s toxic weed killer caused cancer among those who used it. In this case, a California jury has returned an astonishing $2 billion award for the plaintiffs who say Roundup caused their cancers. “Bayer AG was ordered to pay more than $2 billion in damages to a California couple that claimed they got cancer as a result of using its Roundup weedkiller for about three decades,” reports Bloomberg.com.
It’s one of the largest jury awards ever recorded in the history of humanity, and it shows that Bayer is now facing “financial annihilation” because there are over 13,000 additional lawsuits pending.
If 10,000 lawsuits each result in a jury award of just $100 million – the low side of awards so far – this would cost Bayer $1 trillion, plunging the evil corporation into financial ruin.
Just as Roundup is toxic to humanity, Monsanto has been toxic for Bayer
Since acquiring Monsanto, Bayer’s share price has plunged more than 40 percent, meaning the chemical giant has already lost tens of billions of dollars in market capitalization. Since Bayer inherited all of Monsanto’s liabilities when it acquired the company – and because Roundup has been in use by the public for over three decades – Bayer could face at least another decade of lawsuits that add up to multiple trillions of dollars in damages.
“The company has got to come to the table with a viable plan to resolve these cases, or the losses are going to mount,” attorney Micah Dortch told Bloomberg.com. Dortch is part of a law firm that has filed many cases against Monsanto / Bayer, claiming damage from glyphosate exposure. “This outcome should make Monsanto realize the seriousness of these claims and how a jury perceives the evidence.”
Ironically, Monsanto isn’t just toxic to the human food supply and the environment at large; it’s also toxic to Bayer’s shareholders. Then again, if they’re invested in evil corporations, they probably deserve to lose their investments anyway.
French authorities catch Monsanto running “black ops” unit that targeted journalists, regulators and lawmakers across Europe with bribery and intimidation campaigns
On top of the stunning court decision mentioned above, French authorities look likely to file criminal charges against Monsanto for running a “black ops” campaign across Europe, which targeted regulators, lawmakers and journalists with either bribes or intimidation / character assassination campaigns, depending on whether they supported or opposed Roundup and GMOs.
“French prosecutors said on Friday they had opened an inquiry after newspaper Le Monde filed a complaint alleging that Monsanto … had kept a file of 200 names, including journalists and lawmakers in hopes of influencing positions on pesticides,” reports Reuters. (Yes, Reuters.)
Bayer officials are now admitting that Monsanto used black ops-like units to discredit, smear and destroy individuals who stood in the way of Monsanto’s market dominance across Europe. “There have been a number of cases where – as they would say in football – not the ball was played but the man, or woman, was tackled,” admitted Matthias Berninger, the head of public affairs and sustainability for Bayer, as reported by Reuters.
This is an open admission about Monsanto’s character assassination and online defamation operations that have been running for at least a decade.
Natural News has long reported that Monsanto spends millions of dollars a year running “black ops” units to carry out online character assassination targeting clean food advocates in the United States and around the world. This author has been the target of numerous black ops campaigns that I believe were funded and organized by Monsanto, including stalking, death threat campaigns, character assassination and the coordinated bribery of left-learning journalists to publish fabricated lies in media outlets which are picked up by paid-off Wikipedia editors to smear Natural News in Wikipedia.
How Monsanto defames clean food advocates: The “Wikipedia shuffle”
Monsanto is an expert in the so-called “Wikipedia shuffle” scheme, which plants character assassination lies in your Wikipedia page that are then picked up by paid-off journalists in a fake news rag like Buzzfeed. Citing the fake Wikipedia entry, Buzzfeed publishes a story that repeats the defamation lie. From there, the original Wikipedia smear is deleted and replaced with a new entry that cites the Buzzfeed story, which is of course accepted as an “authoritative source” by Wikipedia. Now the lie is sourced and thus considered a “fact.” This is how the Wikipedia shuffle works, and it’s a technique that has been used thousands of times by Monsanto to smear clean food advocates and anti-Monsanto critics all across the world.
Years ago, Natural News exposed Jon Entine, one of the many character assassination operatives with ties to the American Enterprise Institute. Jon Entine ran defamation and smear campaigns targeting critics of Monsanto, and he helped organize attacks on scientific journals that published research showing the toxicity of glyphosate.
Reuters now reports:
French public-sector research institutes Inra and CNRS on Monday said they would file criminal complaints over mishandling of personal data, after finding that some of their researchers and executives featured on the Monsanto stakeholder lists.
This means the jig is just about up for Monsanto and Bayer. With Monsanto’s “black ops” crimes being exposed, and with Bayer now facing literally trillions of dollars in potential liability while suffering a catastrophic stock market loss, this deadly corporation whose products have murdered millions of people across our globe may finally be facing the karma it has long deserved.
Humanity must tear down Bayer and Monsanto in self-defense, halting the “poison-for-profit” scheme that has killed tens of millions
Humanity must continue to work to utterly dismantle Monsanto and Bayer, putting them out of business for good. Until that day comes, this evil cabal of insidious poisoners will continue to saturate the human food supply with cancer-causing chemicals while polluting the world’s croplands and waterways with deadly chemicals.
Bayer has been at war with humanity for over half a century, and Monsanto developed the chemical weapons that have killed millions (including Agent Orange, used in Vietnam). It’s time for humanity to commence a new round of arrests and trials that hold these corporations responsible for their crimes against humanity and nature.
Keep filing the lawsuits against Monsanto, and keep exposing the truth about Bayer’s history with the Nazis and the Holocaust. Here are some very important content links that you can share:
