Monsanto’s GMO Seeds Contributing to Farmer Suicides Every 30 Minutes
Advertisement
In what has been called the single largest wave of recorded suicides in human history, Indian farmers are now killing themselves in record numbers.

It has been extensively reported, even in mainstream news, but nothing has been done about the issue. The cause? Monsanto’s cost-inflated and ineffective seeds have been driving farmers to suicide, and is considered to be one of the largest — if not the largest — cause of the quarter of a million farmer suicides over the past 16 years.

According to the most recent figures (provided by the New York University School of Law), 17,638 Indian farmers committed suicide in 2009 — about one death every 30 minutes. In 2008, the Daily Mail labeled the continual and disturbing suicide spree as ‘The GM (genetically modified) Genocide’. Due to failing harvests and inflated prices that bankrupt the poor farmers, struggling Indian farmers began to kill themselves. Oftentimes, they would commit the act by drinking the very same insecticide that Monsanto supplied them with — a gruesome testament to the extent in which Monsanto has wrecked the lives of independent and traditional farmers.

To further add backing to the tragedy, the rate of Indian farmer suicides massively increased since the introduction of Monsanto’s Bt cotton in 2002. It is no wonder that a large percentage of farmers who take their own lives are cotton farmers, the demographic that is thought to be among the most impacted. Dr. Mercola, an osteopathic doctor that has been educating the world about natural health for many years, recently saw the destruction of traditional Indian farmers first hand. Dr. Mercola found out about the notorious ‘suicide belt’ of India, where 4,238 farmer suicides took place in 2007 alone.

Many families are now ruined thanks to the mass suicides, and are left to economic ruin and must struggle to fight off starvation:

‘We are ruined now,’ said one dead man’s 38-year-old wife. ‘We bought 100 grams of BT Cotton. Our crop failed twice. My husband had become depressed. He went out to his field, lay down in the cotton and swallowed insecticide.’

Sad...Monsanto takes over the food supply with GMOs, while the elite gather and store all of the natural plants and seeds to grow...while we all die out eating poison...

It's called liberty. The freedom of a corporation to monopolize markets, influence elected officials and poison people for profit is an American Value endorsed by watchdog groups like Americans for Prosperity and Koch Inc. Why do you hate America?

Monsanto Reveals The Next Countries That Will Grow The World's Food

Monsanto reported record second quarter results this morning and increased its full year outlook on surprising strength in global corn shipments.

The company said it earned $1.2 billion during the period, on top line results of $4.7 billion. Results were largely driven by core results in its U.S. operations, but the company is gaining steam in emerging markets including Brazil and eastern Europe.

Brazil is a particularly important market to Monsanto, because it recently gained regulatory approval for Intacta RR2 Pro. The company estimates it could top $500 million in annual sales.

Monsanto also notes that countries like Poland and Romania are becoming increasingly important to its success, with the region potentially a $2 billion revenue generator for the company.
