Curriculum vitae of a lethal company

I read that Monsanto is a good company to work for. I'm not surprised to read this, considering that nowadays herbicides, transgenics and chemistry applied to agriculture is good business to provide with enormous profits. For these folks that work on such a field, it doesn't matter if what they work on is going to affect or even kill people so long as they fill in their bank accounts.
Monsanto are providers of chemical products for agriculture worldwide.
1914. They are in the business of saccharine distribution. 1938. They get into the plastic and resin business. 1976. They get into the herbacide business. 1981. They get into the bio technological race.
In the 60's, the US government contracted several companies of which Monsanto was one of them to create a substance that was going to be spread in Vietnamese fields during the war. This substance known as the orange substance poisoned the food that Vietnamese people had to eat. It also caused death for 400,000 people and 500,000 births with malformations. Later on, the US government denied this, but the harm on thousands of people had already been done.
The last news I read on such lethal company is that they're collecting all the seeds worldwide to transform them into transgenic ones.
Monsanto is a very controversial company. There have been protests in several countries against such a company, but they are still on business to modify genetically the food all of us are going to eat.
