Neil Young Announces Anti-Monsanto Album...

Legendary music icon Neil Young will be taking a stand against Round-up Ready Herbicide and Genetically Modified Food producer Monsanto Corp. in his latest album release, The Monsanto Years.

In a move that highlights growing main-stream distrust of the mass use of genetically modified farming chemicals on our foods, (and on the burgeoning public awareness of Genetically Modified food products), Neil Young will take on the issue of Monsanto’s various chemical farming creations. Young will be working with the Willie Nelson sons in highlighting Monsanto’s activities within his new album.

Just looking at the list of new songs on the collection are revealing enough to the central message of the album. Some of the track titles include “Seeds,” “Too Big to Fail,” “Monsanto Years,” and “Rock Starbucks.”

Back in November of 2014, Neil Young called for a boycott of Starbucks for their attempts to squash GMO labeling in Vermont. As Rolling Stone reported:

Neil Young is seeking a new source for his daily latte. The rocker announced on his website this week that he’s boycotting Starbucks over the coffee company’s involvement in a lawsuit against the state of Vermont’s new requirements to label genetically modified ingredients.”

Now, Young’s new album stands as an indicator of just how far and wide his alarm is being sounded over Monsanto’s cancer-linked chemicals. 

With international health agencies now confirming what many in the natural food industry have been warning about for years. There is a growing resistance to treating our food supply as an experimental chemical dump.

Whether it’s Neil Young, Chuck Norris, or Dr. Oz, we are seeing more and more major celebrities joining the fight for both natural and more organically grown foods.

  1. The fact that we have to even have a fucking debate on whether we should eat (feed our kids) fresh organic natural foods, or chow-down on fucking chemical-laced laboratory concocted frankenfood garbage is fucking totally insane. Goes to show ya how far down the rabbit hole society has slid. I blame the Libral morons teaching all the bull-shit in the Universities. Most of those asshole professors have never even had a real fucking job. They fail in the "real world" so they get shit-ass jobs in the University world. Bunch of miserable useless fucks pushing moronic beliefs and poison to the next generations.

    1. You fail at debating... Blame whoever you want. Facts don´t care about what you think

    2. Facts? What exactly are you saying? That GMO's are actually safe? Pleeeeze. I'll take the GMO free food out of my back-yard garden any time compared to any of that GMO cancer causing crap. Maybe you should look at the "FACT" that the lab tech's at Monsanto actually DEMAND all of the food in their own cafeteria be "Organic." How does that "FACT" grab ya? You must be a University Professor. Ha ha ha ha. You are the one who "FAILS." Ha ha ha ha ha!

    3. I've said nothing about GMO's or the sort. And no, I'm not a University Professor. Yet clearly I have a better understanding of biochemistry than you, and reading for that matter since you just read what you wanted to read.

  2. Monsanto claims Roundup "has been proven safe????" That's a fraudulent claim, ipso facto, to start with.

    "Roundup is safe?" Yea - that's why every state in the US has required that red-flag warnings about it toxic dangers to children and pets be placed every few feet within a residential or business property that has been treated with that toxic soup.

    And rest assured, when medical science indisputably and conclusively proves it is a toxic danger to the public and the environment, and when the massive lawsuits start rolling in against Monsanto for the damage it has caused, Monsanto's lawyers will be telling those juries that "we could not have known at the time that it was dangerous -- we were limited by the state of the science at the time and we should not be held liable." Monsanto's lawyers will NOT be telling the juries 'the truth' - that it fraudulently claimed, WITH ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY, that Roundup was safe. They will instead deceive juries with the false claim that Monsanto's "Roundup is safe" proclamations were merely tentative estimates based on the science at the time. Then Monsanto will declare bankruptcy so they can dodge all damage lawsuit claims.

  3. For starters why should anyone listen to musicians or celebrities about GMO's? I'm not saying anything about Monsanto, organic or whatever... I'm just saying these people know nothing about this and therefore have no credibility whatsoever. They just want to use this for PR.

    1. They may just be non-scientifically educated musicians, but this was the "Original" job of the musical artist, to make the people "consider" what the "Corporate man" is pushing upon the citizen. This was a big part of the 1960's and 70's music movement. And, also in the 80's with Punk Music. Anyone who believes that GMO's are "Healthy" are either brainwashed or just complete government zombies. GMO's are terrifying... Ingesting that crap will kill you over time. Science has no clue what the real long term effects are with this junk. Mother-nature has it right and has had it right for thousands and thousands of years. GMO's are a part of centralization. They are screwing with Mother-nature. Humans CANNOT screw with Mother-nature. What will it take for the average person brainwashed by the centralization experiment to wake the hell up???

    2. Probably the same it will take to make anti-GMO's to also wake up and understand the opposite. Monsanto might be evil for some corporative reasons... but GMO's in general are just what they are. If humans hadn't started work with DNA, we'd still be using insulin from pigs. I'm not saying GMO's are good or bad, but they can be either one. I know this because I can understand most of the science behind the process, but don't believe me if you don't want to. It's your choice. Albeit I do agree more extensive testing should take place before putting them out on the market.
