Can we trust Monsanto’s GMO seeds?
Nowadays, it’s common knowledge that DDT causes cancer. But back in the 1940s, Monsanto told us it was safe.
Monsanto began manufacturing DDT in 1944, along with some 15 other companies. Then we found out how toxic DDT was and it was banned in the the United States in 1972.
“…Girls who had the highest levels of the chemical in their blood during that crucial developmental period were five times more likely to get breast cancer years later than were girls who had the lowest levels. That fivefold increase is a bigger boost in risk than is now attributed to hormone replacement therapy or having a close relative with breast cancer.” (Source: Washington Post)
“Men exposed to the lingering remnants of the once widely used pesticide DDT have an increased risk for the most common form of testicular cancer.
Scientists reporting in the April 29 issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute have found that men with the highest blood levels of DDE (dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene), a DDT byproduct, were 1.7 times more likely to develop testicular germ cell tumors than those who had the lowest levels.” (Source: WebMD)

And Now We’re Going to Trust Monsanto with GMOs?
Scientist, Dr. Don M. Huber (interviewed by Dr. Mercola) says Monsanto’s RoundUp is WORSE than DDT:
Wake up, America! You are being lied to.
Don’t fall for Monsanto’s propaganda. Our children are not science experiments.
