Evil” is a word most people don’t use lightly. Yet the majority of NaturalNews readers didn’t hesitate when asked to name the Most Evil Corporation of the Year in an online survey the week of January 13, 2013. More than 16,000 voters participated, and an astonishing 51% gave Monsanto the dubious prize. The Federal Reserve took a distant second with 20% of the vote, followed by British Petroleum with 9% and 
Hallibutron with 5%.

How bad is Monsanto? Mother Earth News writer Barbara Pleasant answered that question in a “Happy Homesteader” post in 2012. “In 2006 the corporate giant bought Delta and Pineland, a leading producer of cotton seed, so that it now controls a huge share of the cotton seed market.” “Mosanto’s genes are in about 95% of commercial soybeans and 80% of commercial corn, and people like the attorney generals of Iowa and Texas are concerned that Monsanto’s business practices VIOLATE federal antitrust laws that protect free competition. When it comes to licensing agreements, Monsanto is reportedly a big time bully.” Monsanto’s misdeeds are well chronicled in Christopher Leonard’s excellent article, “Monsanto Stomps Down Budding 
Seed Competitors.”
NaturalNews editor Mike Adams believes readers overwhelmingly chose Monsanto because of its “corporate spin that tries to position the company as the savior of life on planet Earth.” He cites he “Monsanto Pledge,” which claims integrity and sharing of knowledge and technology as corporate values. “To anyone who knows anything about Monsanto, these words must strike them as particularly nauseous,” Adams wrote.

“For a company that thrives on GMO seeds and is an aggressive opponent of open-pollinated seeds to talk about ‘sharing knowledge’ and ‘helping farmers’ is enough to make you quite 
literally vomit.”
Adams offers the following resource to help us learn more about the corporation’s efforts to squeeze competitors, control smaller seed companies and protect its dominance over the multibillon-dollar market for genetically altered crops:

Until Proven Otherwise, GMOs Are Not Safe
Although we do not yet know about the safety and long-term effects of Genetically Modified [GM] foods, the U.S. does not even require labeling of these products. As a result, consumers are not empowered with the opportunity to make informed choices about their own comfort level in purchasing and eating these foods.
The risks are unknown, especially due to the lack of long term studies in this area. Biotech companies own the patent rights to the genetically engineered seeds and their lack of sharing and disclosure of information has compounded the problem of conflicts of interest in research facilities by NOT allowing long term studies to take place.
