Monsanto's  Poison  Products:  Agent Orange
AGENT ORANGE: Did it happen? Yes: I saw the Operation Ranch Hand C-123s spraying near Bien Hoa Airbase in 1967. Did the chemical cause damage?
Yes: A fellow worker in 1987 showed me the ugly permanent damage to the skin of his legs. Does the U.S. government care or take responsibility?
Barely: only recently and only under pressure. Does Monsanto? They still reject the existence of any problem or responsibility.

Dicamba was first registered in 1967 and is a broad-spectrum herbicide that causes problems with resistence and
contamination by aerial spreading; brand names include Banvel, Diablo, Oracle, and Vanquish.

In October 2017, the agriculture departments of Arkansas, Missouri, and Tennessee temporarily restricted or banned use of the volatile herbicide
dicamba; farmers filed four class action lawsuits for damages; Monsanto filed suit in Arkansas to halt the limitations.

88% of the U.S. corn crop is genetically modified; 94% of the U.S. soybean crop is genetically modified.

G.M.O. corn grown in the U.S.A. is used for animal feed (40% of crop) and for biofuel (31% of crop) – NOT for feeding the world.
