the image above is a list of companies owned by monsanto
it occurred to me that there are tons of people who still dont know how despicable monsanto is or the kind of crap they get away with
if these paragraphs dont convince you to boycott monsanto and all of the companies owned by them, i dont know what will
“Monsanto sparked controversy nationwide with the introduction of Bovine somatotropin, abbreviated as rBST and commonly known as rBGH. It is a synthetic hormone that is injected into cows to increase milk production. IGF-1 is a hormone stimulated by rBGH in the cow’s blood stream, which is directly responsible for the increase in milk production. IGF-1 is a natural hormone found in the milk of both humans and cows causing the quick growth of infants.
Though this IGF-1 occurs naturally in mothers’ milk to be fed to their infants it produces adverse effects in non-infants, behaving as a cancer accelerator in adults and non-infants; this biologically active hormone is associated with breast cancer (correlation shown in premenopausal women), prostate cancer, lung cancer and colon cancers.”
“In 2002, The Washington Post carried a front page report on Monsanto’s legacy of environmental damage in Anniston, Alabama related to its legal production of polychlorinated biphenyls(PCBs), a chemical once used as a common electrical insulator, 40 years ago. Plaintiffs in a pending lawsuit provided documentation showing that the local Monsanto factory knowingly discharged both mercury and PCB-laden waste into local creeks for over 40 years. In a story on 27 January, The New York Times reported that during 1969 alone Monsanto had dumped 45 tons of PCBs into Snow Creek, a feeder for Choccolocco Creek which supplies much of the area’s drinking water. The company also buried millions of pounds of PCB in open-pit landfills located on hillsides above the plant and surrounding neighborhoods. In August 2003, Solutia and Monsanto agreed to pay plaintiffs $700 million to settle claims by over 20,000 Anniston residents related to PCB contamination.”

if anyone else wants to add something to this, please feel free
Monsanto frequently bankrupts independent farmers in hundred-thousand-dollar lawsuits because the farmers used the seeds from the previous year’s harvest (THE WAY FARMERS HAVE BEEN DOING SINCE THE BIRTH OF AGRICULTURE) instead of paying them another royalty. Monsanto is allowed to do this because they patented the genetic makeup of the seeds of major food crops like wheat and corn.
I am making this post because I know I would have benefited greatly from it in the past, so this is for all my vegan coloured hair lovers! (Yes, i spell Colour with a u, I am Australian and this is how it’s spelt)
For as long as I’ve been vegan I’ve Bleached my hair and used vegetable based dyes…
