Biotech stocks
(NaturalNews) Biotech stocks plummeted Thursday following the release of Operation Monsanto Stock Plunge by Food Democracy Now -- a campaign that urged investors to sell shares of biotech companies like Monsanto.

"On Thursday, the Nasdaq composite, which is weighted heavily toward tech and biotech companies, had its worst day since November 2011," reported the Associated Press, less than 24 hours after the launch of Operation Monsanto Stock Plunge. The story was carried across thousands of newspapers such as the L.A. Times. (1)

"Biogen Idec, Gilead Sciences and other biotech companies plunged. Gilead Sciences slid $5.17, or 7 percent, to $65.48 on Thursday. Biogen Idec dropped $13.33, or 4 percent, to $287.35. Both roughly doubled in value last year."

U.S. News and World Report declared, "Stocks drop as investors dump biotech" (see screen shot below), and other newspapers reported headlines like "Dow, Nasdaq fall dramatically as investors dump biotech stocks."

The L.A. Times declared the plunge "Nasdaq's worst day since 2011" (see screen shot below).

Monsanto stocks fell precipitously all day long, as is shown in the following stock price graph:

Organic Spies strikes again!

Operation Monsanto Stock Plunge was, of course, the brainchild of the anonymous group known as "Organic Spies." This group, together with whistleblowing website Natural News, is widely credited with pressuring Whole Foods to announce store-wide GMO labeling by the year 2018.

Now, together with Food Democracy Now which took the lead on Operation Monsanto Stock Plunge, we have directly influenced the movement of billions of dollars on Wall Street, contributing to the global selloff of biotech stocks and encouraging investors to put their money in more ethical, less evil businesses.

Biotech industry trolls and negative P.R. flacks will of course say, "It was just a coincidence," which is exactly what they say when people who eat GMOs are diagnosed with infertility, cancer and organ failure, much like the GMO-fed rats revealed by the Seralini study. But consider it: What are the odds that biotech stocks would just coincidentally happen to experience a near-record plunge on the very next day after activists launched Operation Monsanto Stock Plunge? Any way you slice it, the odds are at least 1,000 to 1.

So either we activists are incredibly lucky at picking stocks, or we influenced the markets and helped cause the plunge that just took place.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose descendents include Africans and American Indians. He self-identifies as being of American Indian heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
