“Who Is Monsanto? ” Monsanto’s website

I just did a search under Google Chrome for “What are GMO’s”.  Monsanto’s website was the first link listed.  In their website, Monsanto (a corporate name which has become largely synonymous with GMO’s) lists what they name as their eight GMO crops:  corn, soybeans, cotton, alfalfa, sugar beets, canola, papaya and squash.  However, in this link they also boast of their Golden Rice, apples (that don’t turn brown) and peanuts.

Wikipedia on Monsanto:

“Monsanto Company is a publicly traded American multinational agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation headquartered in Creve Coeur, Greater St. Louis, Missouri. It is a leading producer of genetically engineered (GE) seed and of theherbicide glyphosate, which it markets under the Roundup brand.

Founded in 1901 by John Francis Queeny, Monsanto initially produced food additives like saccharin and vanillin, expanded intoindustrial chemicals like sulfuric acid and PCBs in the 1920s, and by the 1940s was a major producer of plastics, includingpolystyrene and synthetic fibers. Notable achievements by Monsanto and its scientists as a chemical company included breakthrough research on catalytic asymmetric hydrogenation and being the first company to mass-produce light emitting diodes(LEDs). The company also formerly manufactured controversial products such as the insecticide DDT, PCBs, Agent Orange, andrecombinant bovine somatotropin (a.k.a. bovine growth hormone).”
