Thanks to a recent lawsuit against agribusiness giant Monsanto and the fact that Roundup Weed Killer also kills humans and that a jury has awarded $290 million dollars to a man,(Dewayne Johnson), who is dying thanks to Monsanto’s Roundup, the mainstream media is now ready to add its hypocritical voice to those who have been stalwartly battling against Monsanto-Bayer for decades. All of a sudden, on my main sign-in screen, there appears this headline which I have known about for quite some time now, but for some strange reason, the mainstream media is just now acknowledging this well-known fact.
A new report found glyphosate, a weed-killing chemical that some health authorities link to cancer, in a number of popular breakfast foods and cereals marketed to children. The study by the non-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG) discovered trace amounts of the most widely used herbicide in the country in oats, granolas and snack bars. Thirty-one out of 45 tested products had levels higher than what some scientists consider safe for children.
Recently, some scientists, doctors and activists around the world have worked to keep glyphosate out of crops due to concerns that it is a dangerous carcinogen.
“A new report,” my ass! “Recently,” my ass! Activists and scientists have been saying this over and over for decades and they were completely ignored until it can no longer be ignored because of the fact of a $290 million award in damages that are to be paid to Dewayne Johnson for Monsanto’s product killing him because if you see a picture of him, you cannot help but notice that he is most certainly, ‘dead man walking’. Of course Monsanto is appealing this, but the fact of the matter is this case has set a precedent and now the hundreds of other cases can go forward. And with Monsanto-Bayer continuously shelling out millions in attorney fees, that will put a dent in the bottom line. In fact, its stock is already taking a beating. However, stock in other companies need to take a beating as well.
But what is extremely sad is the fact that the mainstream media willfully ignored scientific proof that a carcinogen was in the foods we feed our children and only because it could no longer be ignored, mainstream media is now trying to divert attention away from the fact that the truth about glyphosate has been known for several decades and the mainstream media absolutely refused to report on these significant findings because one corporation is not going to throw another one under the bus. They’d rather throw our children under the bus and they have. Another even sadder fact is that the companies whose products contain glyphosate are suggesting that even though they know and have known about the fact that glyphosate is in their products, they are standing behind their products by basically stating that this carcinogenic that is found in their products is so minuscule that it could not have an adverse effect on our children’s health, or so says the EPA.
“In a statement Quaker said: “We proudly stand by the safety and quality of our Quaker products. Any levels of glyphosate that may remain are significantly below any limits of the safety standards set by the EPA and the European Commission as safe for human consumption.”
Who the fuck do they think they are at Quaker? They don’t get to say what is a safe amount of a cancer-causing chemical that our children can consume. Those arrogant and conceited, unconcerned assholes should also go bankrupt from a massive boycott without end. Any mother or father who will give their children any Quaker product after that statement should be jailed for assisting in the murder of their child. And if that is not bad enough, this is what the maker’s of Cheerios had to say:
“General Mills told CBS News: “Our products are safe and without question they meet regulatory safety levels. The EPA has researched this issue and has set rules that we follow.”
Seriously? General Mills is going to quote the EPA which we all know is about as effective as it would be if we took a teaspoon full of water and used it to douse one of the California wildfires. General Mills doesn’t give shit for the safety, health and well being of our children. Boycott the company and run the assholes out of business. If you care about your child and what he/she eats, that is exactly what you would do. Any company that displays such a blatant disregard for our children’s health, does not deserve one thin dime from us. Close them down! The EPA is less than useless and is in fact, in bed with Monsanto-Bayer just as it is in bed with every other corporation that is fouling up the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat for if not, why hasn’t the EPA said a damn thing against hydraulic fracturing also known as ‘fracking’? Because it is in bed with corporations, that’s why.
I don’t give a damn how long Quaker Oats has been in business. I don’t give a damn about some Cheerios being touted as ‘heart healthy’. If the companies that mass produce a product loaded with a carcinogen can willfully ignore the dangers of their product, what else would they do or hide? Boycott ALL corporations that insist that any amount of a cancer causing product in their food is acceptable for our children to eat! For once, stand up and hit back against those that are hellbent on killing our children and ourselves all for profit because that IS what it ALL boils down to, profit over people; shareholder dividend checks over humanity, CEO bonus checks over our health and safety!
Our children deserve a fighting chance and they will not get that chance when they are fighting for their very lives over a cancer diagnosis simply because we chose to do nothing even though we had the information right in front of us that proves those corporations knew their products contain a known carcinogen and yet, placed them on the supermarket shelves for us to purchase and feed to our children. Now, how sick and twisted is that?
And lastly, do you want YOUR children to walk around looking like this? Because this is exactly what they are going to look like if you continue to feed them Quaker Oats products and General Mills products because the same carcinogen that is killing THIS man is in the breakfast foods produced by Quaker Oats and General Mills!
Take a good long look at him! This is what Quaker and General Mills and Monsanto-Bayer has in store for your children and you!
