Wiping the latest data means the “adjudication” chart on a government website no longer reflects the recent, sharp rise in court victories for plaintiffs who claimed their children were seriously injured or killed by one or more vaccines.
Since January of 2014, twice as many victims have won court decisions than the previous eight years combined. In these court decisions, a judge ruled the evidence showed vaccines “more likely than not” caused the plaintiff’s injuries.
What We Believe
At the heart of Monsanto is a very clear and principled code of conduct – one we expect all employees, contractors and management to live by every day. We operate under a genuine value system—our pledge—that demonstrates integrity, respect, ethical behavior, perspective and honesty as a foundation for everything we do.
“As an agricultural and technology company committed to human rights, we have a unique opportunity to protect and advance human rights. We have a responsibility to consider not only how our business can benefit consumers, farmers, and food processors, but how it can protect the human rights of both Monsanto’s employees and our business partners’ employees.”
— Hugh Grant, Monsanto, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer
Our human rights policy is an important manifestation of the company’s values as described in the Monsanto Pledge.
Giving is a natural part of what we do at Monsanto. As a company, we are committed to making lives better.
Whether it is helping to provide better seed to improve the livelihood of our customers, working hard to provide more food for a growing population or using our financial resources to support communities around the globe – it is all the Monsanto way.
The Monsanto Pledge is our commitment to how we do business. It is a declaration that compels us to listen more, to consider our actions and their impact broadly, and to lead responsibly. It helps us to convert our values into actions, and to make clear who we are and what we champion.
Integrity is the foundation for all that we do. Integrity includes honesty, decency, consistency, and courage. Building on those values, we are committed to:
We will listen carefully to diverse points of view and engage in thoughtful dialogue. We will broaden our understanding of issues in order to better address the needs and concerns of society and each other.
We will ensure that information is available, accessible, and understandable.
We will share knowledge and technology to advance scientific understanding, to improve agriculture and the environment, to improve crops, and to help farmers in developing countries.
We will use sound and innovative science and thoughtful and effective stewardship to deliver high-quality products that are beneficial to our customers and to the environment.
We will respect the religious, cultural, and ethical concerns of people throughout the world. The safety of our employees, the communities where we operate, our customers, consumers, and the environment will be our highest priority.
Act as Owners to Achieve Results
We will create clarity of direction, roles, and accountability; build strong relationships with our customers and external partners; make wise decisions; steward our company resources; and take responsibility for achieving agreed-upon results.
Create a Great Place to Work
We will ensure diversity of people and thought; foster innovation, creativity and learning; practice inclusive teamwork; and reward and recognize our people.
Well, there you have it folks, the Monsanto pledge! Did they ring true for you? How does this sit with their refusal to accept the rejection of GMO in Hawaii?

Monsanto removing their liability for their OWN bloody product! WTF! Why would you buy this s@~t!
The mindsets that would create this legal opt-out is totally CRIMINAL. Having seen this ANY company, investor, shareholder, individual or government linked to Monsanto clearly displays their moral bankruptcy.

Mercury, thiomersal, now there are two types of mercury both are toxic but here is the deal…they are not toxic once they go into a vaccine.
Why is there still a vaccine/autism controversy? Because vaccine makers cannot be sued when their vaccines kill or cripple kids. The (US) vaccine makers lobbied congress to pass laws protecting them from all liability. Families have been blocked from getting into a REAL court to prove that vaccines have caused their child’s autism.
…the U.S. is pushing for long automatic monopolies for biotech drugs or biologics, including most new treatments for cancer. In addition, the revised TPP chapter includes expansions and extensions of patent protections and terms as well as a provision proposed by the U.S. and Japan that would require granting of patents for new drugs that are slightly altered from a previous patented one—a technique known as “evergreening” that the pharmaceutical industry uses to prolong market monopoly.
