The Toxic Story of RoundUp: Freedom from the Poison Cartel through Agroecology

Posted on Saturday, September 9th, 2017

The report describes the origins and growth of the Poison Cartel and the ways in which these giant agri-business companies (Monsanto, Bayer, Syngenta, Chem China, Dow, Dupont, Basf) gain and keep control of their empires, among other things, in collusion with governmental agencies, as recently revealed in the Poison Papers and Monsanto Papers, undermining independent science and our democracies. It also describes the history of RoundUp and of RoundUp ready crops, and their impact on the environment and on people’s health, and the damage they are causing to our ecosystem. The report ends with a section on how the only possible response to the ecological and climate crisis, poverty, malnutrition and health emergencies which confront the world today, is through biodiversity-based agroecology, a toxic-free, harmless and vibrant agriculture, free of fossil fuels and poisons, and redirect our economic interests from the present linear, extractive and industrial paradigm to a regenerative ecological and nature-based circular approach.
