The Political Ties of Monsanto

From The Center: Natural Health Specialists November 2013 Newsletter
In my last newsletter was an article on the political connections (corruptions) between Monsanto and key players in the government, regulatory agencies, and testing agencies.  As a result, I received several emails requesting more information on this topic. Thank you for those of you that have read this important information and want to learn more.

Does it seem right that a Monsanto lobbyist who heads up Monsanto's Washington DC branch also serves as a Deputy Commissioner on the FDA and as senior advisor to the FDA? Is there any problem with Monanto's VP of Public Affairs also serving as a Deputy Administrator for the EPA? Is there possibly a conflict of interest when the same individual is both the Monsanto's Manager of New Technologies while also working for the USDA and EPA? Check out these links to see the people who share both Monanto and government positions:

Monsanto has also recently openly paid politicians over $400,000.00 in campaign contributions.

So what does all this mean?

It means Monsanto is BIG and powerful! This company is able to exert its influence in policy, law, research, and virtually every aspect of the agricultural industry.

What does this mean for you?

It means you must be diligent about what you eat and how you feed your family. There is clearly conflicting information available on the safety of GMO food. Please do not assume all information available is truthful and accurate. Be your own best advocate!
