Mobile Technology Unit Still Trucking

Monsanto ~ 2009 Beltwide Cotton Conferences ~ MTU Makes Special Appearance
excerpt from above:
Quote:
One reason the tours are a success are the ag educators. This group consists of four individuals who are dedicated to traveling with the unit. Since they have spent the majority of their careers working in either research and development or public affairs, they are able to walk the growers through the process step by step in a way they can understand, while taking the time to answer any questions the growers might have about what Monsanto is doing as a company.

These educators know Monsanto’s technology inside and out and they truly understand what “Our Science. Your Success,” the theme of the MTU, means...

The Monsanto Pledge is our commitment to how we do business. It is a declaration that compels us to listen more, to consider our actions and their impact broadly, and to lead responsibly. It helps us to convert our values into actions, and to make clear who we are and what we champion...

It highlights how Monsanto is committed to sustainable agriculture and its goal to double corn, soybean and cotton yields by the year 2030, while also conserving key resources by one-third, according to a company press release.

Dicamba-resistant soybeans. Dicamba, a common component of weed control in corn, will also be able to be used in soybeans when these soybeans are marketed to farmers sometime after the turn of the next decade...

Re: hungry beast. I have noticed an alarming increase in gullability even recently on the internet. More and more people cite information without sources. Critical thinking has become a thing of the past. More obscenity. More gullibility.

Dicamba resistant soybeans.... oh yea, we really need those so we can spray dicamba all over the world since people started catching onto all the roundup ready seed they were pushing. Monsanto is the good guy.... ah ha ha ha ha ha!!! They have a mobile exhibit spreading the good word to tell us so..... ah ha ha ha ha ha!!! That hungry beast video was clever. Loved it showing up in a Monsanto thread.

A mobile propaganda machine. How disappointing yet not surprising.

Monsanto is committed. They are committed to protecting their profits and their patents.

Monsanto must have a really twisted and contorted definition of sustainable. hazelnut> speaking of gullability.... I just fell for a mutant jellyfish photo.

Default A Comparison of the Effects of Three GM Corn Varieties on Mammalian Health

A Comparison of the Effects of Three GM Corn Varieties on Mammalian Health
Joël Spiroux de Vendômois, François Roullier, Dominique Cellier, and Gilles-Eric Séralin
Int J Biol Sci. 2009; 5(7): 706–726.
Published online 2009 December 10.

A Comparison of the Effects of Three GM Corn Varieties on Mammalian Health
excerpt from above:
Abstract
Quote:
We present for the first time a comparative analysis of blood and organ system data from trials with rats fed three main commercialized genetically modified (GM) maize (NK 603, MON 810, MON 863), which are present in food and feed in the world. NK 603 has been modified to be tolerant to the broad spectrum herbicide Roundup and thus contains residues of this formulation. MON 810 and MON 863 are engineered to synthesize two different Bt toxins used as insecticides. Approximately 60 different biochemical parameters were classified per organ and measured in serum and urine after 5 and 14 weeks of feeding. GM maize-fed rats were compared first to their respective isogenic or parental non-GM equivalent control groups. This was followed by comparison to six reference groups, which had consumed various other non-GM maize varieties. We applied nonparametric methods, including multiple pairwise comparisons with a False Discovery Rate approach. Principal Component Analysis allowed the investigation of scattering of different factors (sex, weeks of feeding, diet, dose and group). Our analysis clearly reveals for the 3 GMOs new side effects linked with GM maize consumption, which were sex- and often dose-dependent. Effects were mostly associated with the kidney and liver, the dietary detoxifying organs, although different between the 3 GMOs. Other effects were also noticed in the heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system. We conclude that these data highlight signs of hepatorenal toxicity, possibly due to the new pesticides specific to each GM corn. In addition, unintended direct or indirect metabolic consequences of the genetic modification cannot be excluded.
