You need more coffee. Monsanto is a chemical company, not an electronics company. Why would a chemical company spread printed circuit boards?
I'm surprised you never heard of polychlorinated biphenyls (which I probably misspelled), they were used as transformer oil for almost a hundred years (that's electrical transformers, PCBs were used as coolant). My dad was a lineman, he's now dying of cancer from PCBs. Purina killed his dad, Monsanto is kiling him. Yet dufuses at slashdot scream for less regulation. Meanwhile, now that we have the EPA you can drive past the plant in Sauget and the air no longer burns your lungs.
