Monsanto Guilty!!!

monsanto-evilYesterday, a French court upheld a 2012 ruling in which Monsanto was found guilty of chemical poisoning a French grain farmer. Paul Francois, says he suffered neurological problems after inhaling the Monsanto line of pre-emergent, weed killer called Lasso.

The decision by an appeals court confirmed the original judgment, the first such case heard in court in France, that ruled Monsanto was responsible for the poisoning and ordered the company to “fully compensate” farmer Paul Francois.

Monsanto’s lawyer said the U.S. biotech company would now take the case to France’s highest appeal court.

Francois, who says he suffered memory loss, headaches and stammering after inhaling Monsanto’s Lasso in 2004, blames the agri-business giant for not providing adequate, cautionaryΒ warnings on the product’s label.

Lasso, a pre-emergent soil-applied herbicide that has been in use since the 1960’s to manage grasses and broadleaf weeds in farm fields, was banned in France in 2007 after the product had already been prohibited in other countries such as Canada, Belgium and Britain.

Remember, you are what you eat… Do you really want to be a chemically altered form of life??

  1. It’s because of Monsanto and the harvesting practices allowed in the U.S. that I avoid using wheat flour of any kind (white, wheat, etc.). I don’t have a gluten illness but I am sensitive to the chemicals used in the U.S. wheat production… practices that are illegal in many other countries. Thus, I try to eat as if I did have a gluten allergy. The agri-biz is an interesting and controversial subject.

  2. I work part time in a Home Brew shop and we sell wheat and flour for breadmaking and the biggest sellers are organically grown Wheat and Spelt – guaranteed chemical free. I really think Monsanto have a huge number of questions to answer. One of the most troublesome highway weeds in many parts of Australia is Roundup resistant Canola. A lot of country councils spray the roadside verges with Roundup and this kills everything – except the Canola. Not only that but it is becoming a weed in gardens as well.

    • That is scary.
      Although there are many problems with Monsanto, one of the biggest IMO, is how the round-up resistant grain (which is wind pollinated, no insects involved) pollen is blown into a non-monsanto farmers field, it germinates and then the innocent farmer gets sued by Monsanto for copywrite use of its killer grain! Farmers can loose thier organic license and all their money fighting a ga-zillion dollar company. Many times giving their land to Monsanto as settlement. The cycle worsens.
      I don’t get how many countries have banned most of Monsanto’s chemicals and have required GMO labeling. .. However, here in the US, we’re losing most battles in GMO labeling and the chemicals still flow like beer from a tap.
      Uuuugh!

    • Sadly, after I saw this news, I searched for other times Monster-santo lost cases, and it’s about even for win/losses for these big buttheads. We Americans are a bit slower than other countries about eating chemicals. .. Seems most don’t mind eating monster foods! 😱😡
