Monsanto: Paving the Road to Hell?

"The road to hell is paved with good intentions" (1855 H. G. Bohn Hand-Book of Proverbs 514)

Monsanto is paving our planet with pesticides, herbicides and genetically modified plants that are able to grow on this toxic desert. Are they setting us up for disaster?

“The nation that destroys its soil, destroys itself.” --- Franklin Delano Roosevelt

According to research, posted on

"Ever since Monsanto developed, marketed and patented the glyphosate molecule -- Roundup(®) herbicide’s active ingredient -- beginning in the early 70’s, a substantial and ever-growing portion of the earth’s arable surface has been transformed into an environmental and human health experiment, of unprecedented scale."

"Glyphosate is now contaminating vast subterranean stretches of groundwater "

I previously blogged that Monsanto's monocultures result in cheap foods - and that makes us all poor:

And now it seems that we are making the earth poor as well.

Monsanto executives believe they are working with good intentions - to produce inexpensive foods, to grow their company, to produce and sell effective pesticides and herbicides.  But instead they are helping farmers produce cheap foods, using pesticides and herbicides that severely damage our planet and our health. They are making their own foods toxic, and their own planet toxic. Our planet.
