Jim Morgan MONSANTO? Don’t get me started.
From 1933 to 1999 MONSANTO poisoned HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of troops stationed/training at Fort McClellan outside of Anniston, Alabama.
To this day, the V.A. and federal government have not acknowledged the problem, notified the troops that were stationed there, or taken any legal action against Monsanto. However, in August of 2003 Monsanto and its spin-off Solutia had to pay $700 Million to the town of Anniston, Alabama in a class action law suit.
Veterans like myself continue to suffer from a long list of illnesses because soldiers are expendable and have no course of action, other than to suffer and eventually die, if no one acknowledges that there was ever a problem on the post or if the government/V.A. doesn’t notify former troops to seek medical attention. To this date, no former troops have been notified.
How bad is it?
In 1966, a study was conducted by a University of Mississippi biologist. He placed 25 Bluegill fish into one of the streams. He reported to Monsanto that the fish became disoriented within 10 seconds and died within 3 ½ minutes. Another of the biologists reported that it was like “dunking the fish in battery acid”. The fish spurted blood and shed their skin as though being placed in boiling water.
Yet another biologist said, “The skin would literally slough off.” Sometime thereafter, a dog drank from the stream and died. For the dog lovers, he wasn’t part of the study – just an incidental occurrence that got reported. Since this was a Monsanto sponsored study, the results were not made public and Monsanto continued business as usual.
