# 5 American Cyanamid Co, Now Cytec Industries
American Cyanamid was a major US chemical company, founded in 1907 by Frank Washburn to industrially manufacture calcium cyanamide, a fertilizer commercially known as nitrolime… In the 1990s, because of its controversial environmental practices, the company sold different divisions to competitors: Pfizer, with smaller portions belonging to BASF, Procter & Gamble and other firms. It is now Cytec Industries.
Carcinogenic Pesticides – American Cyanamid is known to produce pesticides that cause cancer in human (carcinogens). Since most of those pesticides are banned in the US, the company managed to produce and export them to third-world countries… Between 1996 and 2000, it is estimated that some US exporters exported about a billion pounds of those carcinogenic pesticides to those countries.
Critics estimate that over 350 million agricultural workers in Africa and Central America are exposed to these chemicals; no one knows for sure how many have died as a result.
Deadly Pesticides – American Cyanamid is responsible for the “Counter Case” in Pitahaya, Costa Rica. The seriously toxic pesticide was sold to them without warning indicating the product should be handled wearing safety equipment, safety glasses, a mask, rubber boots and gloves.
On June 1, 1988, at a plantation, workers applied Counter in the fields for several days. That afternoon, 15-year-old Heriberto Obando and other workers complained of headaches and dizziness. Some vomited blood. By the time they reached the nearby hospital, Heriberto died and the others were in critical condition.
As for today, the problem continues. Companies like American Cyanamid and Chevron Chemical Co. export about 10 million pounds of these chemicals every month to 3Rd World countries that supply nearly a quarter of the produces, freshly dusted with carcinogenic pesticides, sold in America.
# 4: Bayer
Bayer AG is a chemical and pharmaceutical company founded in 1863 in Barmen, Germany. The company is the producer of many notorious products, including Aspirin. Bayer is accused of several wrongdoings, including the following:
Human Trafficking – during World War II, Bayer bought deported from Auschwitz to serve as human guinea pigs in the framework of confidential medical experiments.
Five letters from Bayer to the executives of Auschwitz Concentration Camp, written in April and May 1943, which were discovered by the Red Army during the liberation of Auschwitz, confirmed purchase of deported women.
Toxic Oil Syndrome 1981 – In the 1980s, one of its products, Nemacur (an active ingredient of organophosphate, a toxic insecticide), is implicated, according to an independent investigation conducted by Dr. Muro, in the toxic oil syndrome, a musculoskeletal disease most famous for a 1981 outbreak in Spain that killed over 600 people.
Yasmin, Yaz and Yasminelle – Bayer also circulated contraceptive pills that are very hazardous to health according to many surveys in Switzerland and the United States. These pills, commonly known as “fourth-generation pills”, including Yasmin, Yaz and Yasminelle, are found to be more dangerous than the old ones, causing serious risk of thrombosis and many other health problems. Thousands of complaints have been filed lawsuits against Bayer because of the severe side effects of these pills.
Contaminated Blood Sandal – Bayer is also accused of knowingly sold contaminated blood products that would have inoculated the AIDS virus, mainly between 1978 and 1985, while many advanced technologies to decontaminate these bloods exist. The pharmaceutical company neglected the process in order to make more profit.
Thousands of hemophiliacs (individuals whose blood doesn’t clot normally because it lacks sufficient blood-clotting proteins) worldwide are infected with the HIV virus as a result of the evilness of Bayer…The company later admits to pay “tens of millions” of dollars to the victims to end the three-decade long scandal.

Relabeling Expired Milk Cans – Many times, Nestlé de Colombia SA has renewed packaging and labels of expired dairy products imported from Latin American countries. In December 2002, Colombian police discovered that the company performs fraudulent labeling of 200 tons of expired milk, endangering the life and health of the Colombian population.
