Did you know that genetic engineering isn’t just used to make GMO Frankenfoods, synthetic biology (syn-biotech) fake meats and food ingredients, and experimental gene-transfer “vaccines,” but also to weaponize viruses and pathogens and create “dual-use” biological weapons?
Monsanto and Bayer (Monsanto’s parent corporation) are two of the primary culprits in this chemical, genetic engineering, and military madness.
Monsanto has worked for decades as a U.S. military contractor. It manufactured the deadly defoliate Agent Orange during the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 70s, which killed or injured millions of Vietnamese people as well as U.S. soldiers, and earlier refined plutonium for the Manhattan Project that produced the atomic bombs we dropped on Japan in World War II. As People’s World magazine points out “Bayer, perhaps best known for its aspirins or other useful medicines, also has a trail marked with death… It was Bayer, together with two other chemical giants, BASF and Hoechst, which developed the terrible chlorine gas used in World War I. In 1925, the three formed a giant cartel, IG Farben, which became the world’s leader in pharmaceuticals, dyes, and chemicals. During the early 1930s, IG Farben became the single largest donor to the election campaign of Adolf Hitler… This was amply rewarded. IG Farben, with Bayer, became the single largest profiteer of German conquests in World War II.”
Monsanto also participated in tests to study the dispersal of biological weapons—tests that were conducted without notice or consent on the people of St. Louis, Missouri, in the 1950s and 60s. This story is documented in the book Behind the Fog: How the U.S. Cold War Radiological Weapons Program Exposed Innocent Americans.
If you’re just as concerned about GMOs engineered for biological weapons (hiding behind the excuse of dual-use medical research) as you are about GMOs in food and agriculture, please…
