Argentina suspends construction of Monsanto’s unconstitutional GMO seed plant – A mini victory of sorts!

According to Natural News, a three-person court ruled two to one that construction of a Monsanto GMO seed plant must be halted until an environmental impact study is completed.
Of course, Monsanto is taking this decision to a higher court with claims that they did their own environmental study and the paperwork for construction on that site was approved by Argentine construction bureaucracies. They played the typical corporate rights card, which tends to appeal to individual rights philosophies even among libertarians, unfortunately.
Monsanto’s end product is Roundup. It is primarily a chemical company. The birth deformities and spontaneous abortions that many farmers in the USA have reported in their GMO soy- and corn-fed livestock have plagued Argentine humans living near GMO soy fields.
The fields were often sprayed from the air. And mysterious illnesses were occurring among adults and children near those fields during the 12 years that Argentina had bought into GMO soy production to boost its economy.

The motivating force behind expanding anti-Monsanto demonstrations, including life-threatening demonstrations on the seed plant construction site, was the growing health problems near soy fields sprayed with Roundup. Farmers who sign up for Roundup Ready seeds are forced into using Roundup as part of Monsanto’s contract.
Even an Associated Press investigation pointed to a clear link between the use of pesticides sold by Monsanto and worsening health problems in Argentina, as those pesticides both were airborne and polluted water sources.
While Monsanto claims that glyphosate is safe, and many international environmental, health and agricultural agencies concur, there is a sneaky little detail that’s omitted from their studies.
Seralini’s French research team discovered that Roundup’s extreme toxicity comes from combining glyphosate with chemical adjuvants to ensure rapid plant absorption of glyphosate.
Glyphosate is considered the “active ingredient,” so that’s what is tested. The adjuvants are considered “inert,” pretty much like vaccines and their toxic adjuvants, and are thus ignored, especially when protected by “trade secret” rights.
