Monsanto has terminated 16% of its workforce in recent months, as demand for GMO crops continues to plummet...

Those opposed to GM agriculture in favor of healthy, organic food have a lot to celebrate as we enter the new year. It's just been announced that Monsanto plans to eliminate another 1,000 jobs, in addition to the 2,600 it slashed last fall, resulting in a 16 percent decrease in its total workforce.

Meanwhile, sales of organic products are on the increase, as consumers learn more about the benefits of a diet consisting of healthy, natural food.
Not so long ago, it seemed as if the GMO-pushing agricultural giant Monsanto was nearly invincible. With its deep pockets, the Frankenfood machine was able to buy off politicians, judges and scientists, who all became complicit in an evil plot – the goal of which was to take over and control nearly the entire global agricultural industry.

Monsanto's grand scheme involved replacing traditional farming techniques with a poisonous, environmentally-unsound, laboratory-engineered substitute, based on the cultivation of genetically-modified plants – a system which also happened to require the use of carcinogenic pesticides just to function.

Needless to say, this scheme was opposed by many – from farmers, to scientists, to consumers – but Monsanto's intense lobbying and propaganda efforts succeeded in allowing the company to spread its poisonous tentacles throughout the globe, before the opposition could do anything about it.

But then, over the past couple of years, things have begun to change. Full story...
