Monsanto– the evil empire of herbicides and genetically engineered foods– has been found spreading false information yet again.
Monsanto’s claim: Genetically engineered crops require less herbicides.
Scientists from several non-governmental organizations found that genetically engineered corn, soybean, and cotton crops have dramatically increased the need for weed-killing herbicides.
From 1996 to 2008– the herbicide use in the U.S. grew by 383 million pounds. Crazy!
