Ever since its beginning in 1901, Monsanto has kept a tight grip on the food market in America. Its web, at some points, reaches beyond U.S. borders – with links to Nazi Germany and the extermination of the Jews and its marketing of saccharine, an artificial sweetener with a reputation built upon lies regarding health. We know Monsanto continues tightening its grip on the American population today – supporting the creation and distribution of genetically modified foods from tainted fields right to our dining room tables.
They come in many different packet colors (pastels like pink, blue, and yellow) and bear simple, appealing names like Sweet n’ Low, Nutrasweet, Splenda, and Equal. The companies guarantee that the product will taste as innocent as it looks, fulfilling its purpose of sweetening coffee, tea, or indulgent desserts while allowing the consumer the luxury of fewer calories or less fat. These are the same substances that many Americans put on a pedestal, while demonizing honey and raw sugar as diet destroyers.
