Yet another downside of Monsanto's drug to enhance the production of milk. Carcinogens in the world's water has scientists, environmentalists, activists and doctors are concerned. Yet it is still being used. It seems as though some companies are way too focused on profit and success that they are completely ignoring all of the signs that show their product is destroying plants, animals, and now is in our water and can cause issues with people too. 

 

The levels of the carcinogens is said to be a great deal more than acceptable drinking water is allowed to safely have in it. The fact that a company can look at what their product is doing and still ignore the negatives the business is having is mind boggling. It just shows the difference between a corporation and a person. Monsanto is showing signs of a psychopath; uncaring, full of greed, no concern for those around them, and more. It is saddening to think these things are happening by the hands of people hiding under the face of a corporation.
