Video: 11-Year-Old Takes Down Monsanto In TED Talk

The fight against Monsanto has heated up like never before, especially with the recent March Against Monsanto and other campaigns that have been rooted in similar activism. But the simple reality is that it doesn’t take a PHD to realize how Monsanto’s genetic manipulation of the food supply is an assault on the health of the world — an experiment to which we do not know the full extent of the damage. Instead, as 11-year-old Birke Baehr shows us, it simply takes a bit of research.

I wanted to share Birke’s TEDX speech as I feel it shows just how far the information we continue to cover each day has spread. Even the youngest citizens of the world are continuing the tradition of seeking truth that those before them have initiated since the beginning. The speech also reveals how even an 11-year-old can examine the situation at hand and realize the inherent problems that go along with giving control of the world’s staple food supply to a company that created one of the deadliest chemical weapons of all time — Agent Orange.

A History Of Corruption

We know that Monsanto was responsible for creating the Vietnam-era chemical warfare weapon known as Agent Orange. A chemical creation that killed 400,000 individuals (many of which were innocent or our own troops), led to 300,000 plus birth defects, and continues to haunt veterans and their families to this day. We also know that Monsanto managed to slip away from criminal charges without so much as a real apology. Quite simply, this is a company with a confirmed history of widespread death that has, in typical mega corporation fashion, utilized an army of lawyers to protect itself from fair treatment within the court system.

And thanks to the company’s extreme ties to the government and the media, from associates like top FDA head Michael Taylor, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and beyond, it has managed to get away without a hitch. Monsanto’s good pal Clarence Thomas has even helped secure them a foothold within the Supreme Court that has allowed for them to openly patent life under what the Supreme Court determines to be a perfectly ‘legal’ practice.

Watch as Birke exposes Monsanto based on the information surrounding the GMO juggernaut that he has researched during his homeschooling.

    Wow! This little guy made me cry. He gives me hope for our future. Kudos to the Baehr family for teaching him the truth on how food should be grown. Live well, Birke! Happy farming!

    Way to go Birke!!!!!!!!!!!! I'd rather pay the farmer than the hospital too.

    It also is amazing that an 11 year old can realize this and grown adults can't or are just too lazy. This is what is meant by those tv ads to "just ask your doctor". Seems like this is a nice little circle of fire created by corporation to pharmaceutical to insurance companies. A no win situation with Monsanto and friends in the house.

    AND, I'd rather be the lunatic farmer.

    God bless him and his practice of farming for future gendre.

    cool kid…and I agree with him, but he didn't really do any research or say anything new. Sounds like a little kid that got indoctrinated by his parents and is sensible. He's just parroting what most of us believe but don't really know about food.

    • Cheryl says:

      I agree with your assessment. But, we need more messengers and he may be just the right kind! Good luck to him, his family and all of us!

    Smart kid or just a great actor with well rehearsed hand gesturing and a talent for memorizing a script? I do agree with everything that he said but, I don't think the words came from him.

    right on little man! – you're fortunate to have good parents who are obviously bringing you up well – best 5 minutes of video that EVERY "U.S. of A." citizens should watch – Europe & the rest of the world obviously know better because they demand labeling…we're not run by a gov't (or haven't been for a while) we're run by a Corporation holding hands w/other Corporations

  8. EVA JUAN says:

    Yes I agree with you Jason… but at least this Young fellow is beginning with some positive feed back..better than most kids nowadays…peace!!!

    What a bunch of idiots. Absolutely no real studies that link Monsanto to adverse health conditions. You all eat GMO's and don't even know it. Are all of you dying? Not likely. Dumb following dumber. May twits inherit the earth.

  10. reality808 says:

    i'm sure these scientists and everyone involved are idiot. you're the wise one, right? or just negative and bitter? we're dying every day, thanks for that wisdom, but it's about dying well or dying painfully.
