The award was given by natural health information website NaturalSociety after thousands of readers voted Monsanto the worst company of 2011.

The researchers also mentioned that GMO soybean and corn varieties contribute to "83% of the commercialized GMOs" that you may currently be consuming if you purchase conventional produce. Monsanto's best-selling herbicide Roundup has also been found to create superweeds that are heavily resistant to herbicides, which are estimated to now consume over 120 million hectares worldwide.

The award is intended to bring awareness to these environmental issues, which are continually being recognized by nations worldwide. Hungary, Peru, and France are among the countries who have spoken out against Monsanto and GMO crops alike.
