Monsanto Has Quietly, Deceitfully Changed Its Name
Agricultural giant Monsanto is a serial killer. Since they began developing the carcinogenic glyphosate-based herbicide ‘Roundup’ in the 1970’s and GMO seeds in the 1980’s – millions of people around the world have died as a direct result of their toxic products.
Following an avalanche of lawsuits and criticism from world leaders, the agricultural giant decided to quietly change its name in an attempt to fool consumers into thinking they are no longer being exposed to their dangerous products.
On Thursday, German drugmaker and chemical company Bayer finalized its $66 billion deal to acquire Monsanto and rebrand (in name only).
