Monsanto Lies about Approval and Falsifies Toxicology Reports Again

The Chinese people are speaking out about their hatred of arguably one of the vilest corporations on planet Earth: Monsanto.

In yet another underhanded attempt at forcing its genetically engineered toxic abominations on the world sans any real safety testing, Monsanto released to the press on February 3, 2016, the following statement (my emphasis):

ST. LOUIS (February 3, 2016) – Monsanto Company (NYSE: MON) today announced its commercial launch plans for its Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ soybeans after it received import approval in China. This technology has been highly anticipated by farmers and is now available in the United States and Canada in time for the 2016 season.

This press release was distributed worldwide. And it is a lie. China has not approved the import of Monsanto RR2 Xtend soybeans, and previous toxicology reports for RR soybeans were falsified.

According to the Chinese Agricultural Ministry:

May 3, 2016:

China's Ag [Agricultural] Ministry has not issued "safety certificate" to import Monsanto RR2 Xtend soybeans tolerant to both Glyphosate + Dicamba herbicides.

China's Ag Ministry "never accepted Monsanto's safety evaluation application material for 'Glyphosate- tolerance + Dicamba-tolerance" GM soybeans (MON87708×MON89788)"; [5]

China's Ag Ministry also did not receive the "Agricultural GM Safety Evaluation Application Report" for Monsanto's 'Glyphosate- tolerance + Dicamba-tolerance" GM soybeans (MON87708×MON89788) accordingly does not exist."

 We must also inform you:

A falsified toxicology animal test report submitted to China's Ag [Agricultural] Ministry by Monsanto for Roundup "Pesticide Registration" in 1988 of which Monsanto claims "issued by Younger Laboratories on Dec. 23, 1985," and the fake toxicology test study submitted to China's Ag [Agricultural] Ministry by Monsanto for RR soybeans 40-3-2 safety evaluation in 2004, i.e. carried out with "fake samples" of RR soybeans 40-3-2 prepared by Monsanto purposely not sprayed with Roundup and accordingly contained no Roundup residuals, are the root resulting in China importing over 81 million tons of RR soybeans from the USA, Brazil, and Argentine. 

Evidently, actual approval and a verified toxicology report are not necessary for the chemical giant to have before announcing its plans to submit an unsuspecting public to its poisonous concoctions. And this time, it is for a Glyphosate/Dicamba-resistant soybean. A double whammy designed to increase pesticide usage worldwide at the expense of the environment, soil, water, and health of those exposed to the poisons. But hey, why not? As long as profits keep rising and sales keep adding up, to hell with approvals and actual toxicology reports. Just ram it through via the media and there you have it? Standard operating procedure. What else would you expect when even the chronic long-term safety studies submitted to and approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for Glyphosate-based Roundup products were a complete sham?

Glyphosate chronic long-term safety studies are a sham.

Research Scientist Anthony Samsel has discovered that the chronic long-term safety studies on Glyphosate that Monsanto submitted to regulators across the globe to show that the product is safe are for a different form of Glyphosate than is used in the products that the company sells.

The substance used for testing purposes is called Technical Glyphosate Acid, or N-Phophonomethyl glycine. The salts and esters of Glyphosate i.e. Potassium Glyphosate, Ammonium Glyphosate, and Isopropylamine Glyphosate are the three substances currently used in all Monsanto Glyphosate-based products.

Is there anything that Monsanto and the U.S. Government will not do to advance corporate control over the world’s food supply via GMOs (genetically modified/engineered organisms) along with the proprietary chemicals that accompany them? I don’t think so, and evidently, the people of China don’t think so either.
