Bayer completed its purchase of Monsanto in 2018, in a move that the company’s own investors have rebelled against in recent months to the tune of a multi-billion dollar class action lawsuit against the company.
Since then, the German pesticide, GMO and pharmaceutical company’s reputation had been considerably damaged due to being associated with Monsanto and its ongoing Roundup/cancer lawsuits.
Bayer and Monsanto have a lot in common, starting with the toxic products they have brought to market.
This is just a shortlist of the top reasons – the ‘Toxic 17’ – why you should boycott Bayer-Monsanto, an unethical corporation and a scourge on humanity and the planet.

Monsanto became one of the two primary manufacturers of this war chemical during the early 1960s.
This combination of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T was used often for chemical warfare during the Vietnam War as an herbicide and defoliant. Monsanto’s formula had far more dioxin, a byproduct considered one of the most toxic substances known to man, than the version made by Dow Chemical.
