Monsanto + evil corporation go together hand in hand, so how did they earn their shameful reputation? 
Monsanto created a Genetically Modified (GM) variety of soy that has two main properties:
1⃣ Farmers need to buy it each season.
2⃣ It is resistant to RoundUp. (RoundUp is an herbicide made by Monsanto that kills pretty much anything.)
Monsanto has convinced farmers to use their GM seeds and then, rather than weeding, spray their crops with RoundUp. Only the GM plants survive and can be harvested much more easily than regular soy crops. In order to close the loop, they have sued every farmer that tries to reuse soy seeds claiming patent infringement. The end result is that all soy in the US is not only GM, but has been sprayed with RoundUp. Most soy is converted into vegetable oil, widely used for processed foods and and livestock feed.
Monsanto’s superweeds have become a threat to farming in the US South. Monsanto and the industry’s response is to ask farmers to spray their crops with a cocktail of potent herbicides 💨while they work on new GMO varieties that are resistant to the new stuff. You can also thank Monsanto for contributing to the ever dwindling bee population. The ultimate irony, Monsanto calls refers to their tyrannical corporation as “a sustainable agriculture company." 
Farmers are hooked into herbicide ready crops, while Monsanto is hooked on the large amounts of money created by their market. Together with other companies like ADM, they have lobbied Congress and made it impossible to add GM labeling to foods in the US. How else would #Prop37 fail and the Monsanto Protection Act pass? 
Give Monsanto the finger, EAT ORGANIC! #VegansofIG
