This is something I do not often post. And it’s really perhaps more of a personal type post. Although the subject is world wide. I am not a fan of the company called “Monsanto”, or any company that wants to take advantage of the human population by manufacturing products that are known to harm the human body.
I resonated with this article because it describes what appears to be a step by step dismantling of Monsanto, and companies like them. The other reason I resonated with this, is “my story.”
My Story: In the spring of 2011, I was moved to take a trip through the Midwest, through the states of Illinois, Missouri, and Arkansas. One part of this, as it turned out, my first stop, was to go to Monsanto headquarters in St. Louis. There I dropped 2 (possibly more) seeds, black pieces of lava, from Pele. These were specifically for the “destruction” of Monsanto, and companies like it, that were attempting to destroy the planet’s food systems. Not “destruction” by bombs, or anything “physical”, but via these energetic seeds from Pele, from the Big Island.
The operation was conducted at perhaps midnight, when no one was around, and was done at the back side of the corporate property. The seeds were cast directly onto the grass there. Afterwards I left (aka, “Got the he// out of there”) as fast as I could. I never felt any danger, whatsoever, but I knew that the explosions at Monsanto had already begun. And they were (very likely) pi$$ed.
So I love what this article has to say about what’s happening around the world. The dismantling of companies such as this. Also, at the end, is a video I found at jhaines site, about the deceptive practices at Whole Foods stores, and Monsanto’s input to those stores, and it’s opposition (in a big bucks way) to Prop 37.

Is the end of Monsanto Near? Prop 37 Succeeding as Nations Ban GMO Crops…

“After the study not only did France call for a potential worldwide ban on GMOs pending the results of their in-depth analysis, but Russia’s major consumer rights organization announced a ban on both the importation and use of Monsanto’s GMO corn.”
Is the end of Monsanto within reach? It has certainly been a rough couple of weeks for the mega corporation as the real dangers surrounding GMOs are being brought to the attention of consumers on a global scale like never before. It all started with the monumental French study finding a serious link between the consumption of Monsanto’s Roundup-drenched GMOs and massive tumors. Being called the ‘most thorough’ research ever published on the real health effects of GMOs, the study led to even larger victories.
After the study not only did France call for a potential worldwide ban on GMOs pending the results of their in-depth analysis, but Russia’s major consumer rights organization announced a ban on both the importation and use of Monsanto’s GMO corn.
Prop 37 Can Label Monsanto Out of Existence
And now, the Proposition to label all GMOs in the state of California is showing massive success. If Prop 37 passes, it won’t just affect California. It is very likely that other states will not just take note, but adopt similar legislation. Through this legal mechanism, we can essential label Monsanto out of existence. This is possible when considering that the average consumer is actually opposed to GMOs and heavily in favor of proper labeling.
In a major Los Angeles Times poll, registered California voters in favor of labeling outnumber pro-GMO voters by more than a 2-to-1 margin. Altogether, a whopping 61% of those polled reported supporting the Prop 37 labeling initiative. Only 25% reported opposing it.
If GMO-containing products are properly labeled, the simple fact of the matter is that less people will buy them. As of right now, very few people are even aware of what they are putting in their mouth. In fact, if the public knew that they were consuming GMOs which were linked to massive tumors and organ failure, the overwhelming majority would abandon such products. Without labeling, however, they have no idea. The same can also be said for other ingredients like high-fructose corn syrup and aspartame.
As Yes on 37 campaign manager Gary Ruskin explains:
“Monsanto, DuPont, and Coca-Cola do not want Californians to know what’s really in their food and drinks, because they fear consumers will turn away from their genetically engineered ingredients and pesticides that go with them.”
If they knew they were eating mercury in the HFCS and consuming an artificial sweetener with over 42 associated diseases, then major change would occur – change that includes forcing manufacturers to abandon these ingredients in order to stay profitable. And after all, Monsanto’s number one goal is profit. This is a company that has been caught running ‘slave-like’ working conditions in which ‘employees’ were forced to buy only from the company store and were not allowed to leave the area or their pay would be withheld.
If Monsanto’s profits were to plummet, their political reign would likely follow as well. Without an endless amount of cash to throw at crushing Prop 37, already contributing $4 million to fuel anti-labeling propaganda in California, the corporation’s massive grasp on the world of science (continually censoring studies and funding pro-GM research) and politics would virtually cease to exist.
It is essential that we ensure the passing of Prop 37 in a bid to generate the literal end of Monsanto. Once consumers actually know that they’re putting genetically modified creations into their body, real change will occur within the food supply.
