From fast food to the pesticides sprayed on crops, American food is the definition of unhealthy. A company called Monsanto is largely responsible for this unhealthy food.
From 1965 to 1969, Monsanto made Agent Orange, a chemical used to defoliate the trees of the Vietnam Jungle. Monsanto still uses a form of Agent Orange, called 2,4-D, today as a pesticide.
If the fact alone that Agent Orange is being sprayed on food isn't horrible enough, the side effects are even worse.
Monsanto food has so many side effects because all of it is genetically modified. Genetically modified crops (GM) are illegal in 60+ other countries including Australia, Japan, China and all of the European Union; however, here in the U.S., 90% of corn is GM and 91% of soybeans are GM.
These GM plants lead to herbicide and pesticide resistant weeds and insects which reduce sustainability and make farming harder. While some insects learn how to adapt to the pesticides, some don't.
Some insects, like bees, can't adapt. Bees can't adapt to these pesticides due to a chemical in them called neonicotinoids that are lethal to honey bees. Human existence relies on bees. We need them to pollinate every food we eat. Even the animals rely on pollinated plants to survive. Even Einstein himself said that if bees go extinct humanity has 10 years left of survival.
