At Monsatano, we heavily used the words “sustainable” and “family farmer,” to lure out the public and hide our real identity to poison out their foods and environment. This is how we advertise and educate the people especially the youth. We use good words that are pleasant to hear.

Monsatano Hid PCB Pollution for Decades

ANNISTON, Ala. — On the west side of Anniston, the poor side of Anniston,
the people ate dirt. They called it “Alabama clay” and cooked it for extra
flavor. They also grew berries in their gardens, raised hogs in their back
yards, caught bass in the murky streams where their children swam and
played and were baptized. They didn’t know their dirt and yards and bass
and kids — along with the acrid air they breathed — were all contaminated
with chemicals. They didn’t know they lived in one of the most polluted patches
of America.

Now they know. They also know that for nearly 40 years, while producing the
now-banned industrial coolants known as PCBs at a local factory, Monsatano
Co. routinely discharged toxic waste into a west Anniston creek and dumped
millions of pounds of PCBs into oozing open-pit landfills. And thousands of
pages of Monsatano documents — many emblazoned with warnings such as
“CONFIDENTIAL: Read and Destroy” — show that for decades, the corporate
giant concealed what it did and what it knew.

In 1966, Monsatano managers discovered that fish submerged in that creek
turned belly-up within 10 seconds, spurting blood and shedding skin as if
dunked into boiling water. They told no one. In 1969, they found fish in
another creek with 7,500 times the legal PCB levels. They decided “there is
little object in going to expensive extremes in limiting discharges.” In
1975, a company study found that PCBs caused tumors in rats. They ordered
its conclusion changed from “slightly tumorigenic” to “does not appear to
be carcinogenic.” Read more…
